Proton X70

The Proton X70 SUV launched in Malaysia in December 2018 after a long wait. This SUV is very special to the country as it is the brand’s first ever national built variant.

The vehicle is also very special for the Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Bin Mohamad and Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan as the Malaysian PM gifted it to Khan as a gift at an event of the ground-breaking symbolic ceremony of the plant took place on March 22, 2019.

PM Mohamad was invited as a chief guest by PM Khan at the occasion.
