KUALA LUMPUR 9 July - Proton today commemorated the 35th anniversary of the Proton Saga in the company’s first ever virtual launch over social media with the Saga Anniversary Edition.

The anniversary marked the 4,150,035th car to roll off the line. 

Over the past 35 years, Proton has been a catalyst of industrialization for the national economy, spurring the development of an entire automotive ecosystem making Malaysia one of the few countries in the world to produce its own vehicles. 

 Proton Chairman, Datuk Seri Syed Faisal Albar said:

“The Proton Saga is the car that put Malaysia, and therefore our economy on wheels and, it is still doing so."

Unveiled as part of the celebrations, the Saga Anniversary Edition commemorates and celebrates the first Proton Saga delivered in 1985.
