11-07-2008: Proton launches Persona range in Indonesia

JAKARTA: Proton Holdings Bhd has launched its Persona range in Indonesia as the Gen.2 Persona, the fifth model it has introduced in the country since entering the market there in March 2007.

The company first introduced the Savvy and Gen.2 models last year, followed by the Waja and Neo ranges later.

The Gen.2 Persona that was launched at the 16th Indonesia International Motorshow on July 11 is priced at Rp122 million (RM43,213), and is available in five variants, namely the 1.6-litre base-line automatic and manual; 1.6 medium-line automatic and manual and the 1.6 high-line automatic.

In a statement on Friday, Proton said the cars would be available in seven colours.

Proton managing director Datuk Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohd Tahir said its vehicles had been well received in Indonesia and the Gen.2 Persona was tangible proof of the company’s long-term commitment in Indonesia.

“This is the second year that we are participating in this huge motor show and we are proud to be able to introduce the Persona to the people of Indonesia at this prestigious event.

“The Persona boasts fuel economy that is very competitive in the 1,600cc segment,” he said.

He said PT Proton Edar Indonesia, the company’s local subsidiary, was working hard to grow its presence while introducing Indonesians to a wide range of services and products from Proton.

A year ago, the company began with three dealerships in Indonesia and this has now increased to five dealerships in Warung Buncit, Bandung, Makasar, Pekanbaru and Palembang, and one branch in Slipi, Jakarta, all equipped with 3S capabilities.

Syed Zainal said plans were underway to open more 3S centres in Pondok Indah and Kalimalang, with the former serving as headquarters and another dealership in Kelapa Gading.
