Since acquiring Lotus in 1996, Proton has incorporated the company’s expertise and experience. So you can be sure that the new generation of Proton cars are distinctive in design and offer superb driving performance.
In addition, we have built up our R&D capabilities which resulted in a few world-class breakthroughs, including the CAMPRO engine.
This also means we can design and build our own cars, including the engine and vehicle platform. This independence as a car manufacturer makes us competitive internationally. More importantly, it gives us the freedom to offer you a better deal on price!
With our very own R&D facilities and expertise, Proton offers a complete range of engineering solutions to both local and foreign companies – and of course, for our own cars!
Today, our R&D capabilities are focused on 6 main areas:
- Vehicle platforms
- Powertrain engineering
- Homologation and testing
- Engineering development and services
- Engineering research
Developing a completely new car is a complicated process. It usually takes 36 months from concept to production of a road-worthy model. However, our state-of-the-art facilities combined with the expertise of our engineering team lets us reduce this process to 24 months.
Still, we make sure quality is always maintained. In recognition, our R&D unit achieved the ISO 9001:2001 certification for quality in 2003.
Now featured in all new Proton models, this revolutionary engine was developed in partnership with world-renowned Lotus. So you can expect a superb driving experience, in addition to these advantages:
