Pakistan Becomes Largest Export Market for Proton Cars
Proton is gradually expanding its international footprint, with Pakistan being its biggest export market. According to a popular Malaysian news outlet Paul Tan, the automaker has exported 794 units to international markets in March 2021 with 690 coming to Pakistan.
Proton sold a total of 13,028 units (Malaysia and other countries) in March 2022, recording a Month-Over-Month (MOM) increase of 41 percent in sales, with Saga being its top seller at 6,422 units. The next seller was the X70 SUV with 2,320 units sold in a month.
Proton in Pakistan
While Proton enjoys a mammoth share in the Malaysian market, it is not nearly as successful in Pakistan. The reasons for that include slow sales, delayed local production, long delivery times, and dampened demand as a result.
