SUBANG JAYA: Bookings for the new Proton X70 can be made online via Proton’s corporate website www.proton.com.
Those who want to book a unit are required to provide their personal details, preferred model and colour choice as well as the city and state where they wish to collect their car.
Following payment of the booking fee, also done online, a system-generated receipt will be sent to the customer’s email.
Proton then assigns a sales advisor to handle the order who contacts the customer within seven days to process the booking
Proton will also feature full details of the Proton X70 on its website, including full specifications for each model variant.
To promote the use of its new online booking platform, Proton is holding a ‘flash sale’ from 17-19 October where customers who book the Proton X70 via the platform only need to pay a booking fee of RM99.
It is apt that this is the first Proton model that can be booked online, as Proton’s first SUV also offers an embedded eSIM card, Wi-Fi connectivity, preloaded apps offering services like online radio, online music, navigation and weather forecasts as well as advanced voice recognition software.
“After studying consumer preferences and market trends, Proton believes the time is right to offer an online booking facility to our customers. The platform allows bookings to be made from anywhere a customer is as long as there is an Internet connection available. The Company has also decided to reward those who make a booking prior to the launch of the Proton X70. This will come in the form of special gifts for all early birds regardless of whether they booked their unit online or at our outlets,” said Abdul Rashid Musa, CEO of Proton Edar.
