Proton Pakistan has begun local assembly of the Proton X70 crossover SUV, which is excellent news for Proton X70 customers. According to reports, the first unit was handed over today in Lahore, which is excellent news. It is important to note that those who reserved a car did not receive it until today. COVID-19, its constraints in Malaysia, and the initiation of local manufacture are the reasons for the delays.
However, it appears that the corporation has resolved the difficulties, and delivery have resumed. We informed you yesterday that the firm is ready to begin delivery, and that one of the company's officials assured us that the procedure will begin in the next few days.
COVID-19 struck Malaysia hard soon after the Malaysian crossing arrived in Pakistan in December 2020. A series of lockdowns occurred throughout the nation, resulting in import restrictions and Proton X70 deliveries that were delayed.
In September 2021, when the situation in Malaysia improved and industrial activity restarted, Proton made the earliest feasible shipments to Pakistan to resume operations. In January 2022, Proton Pakistan released the first domestically built X70.
With that, the business vowed to begin mass production of the X70 in March 2022 and deliver the vehicle to its eager customers. However, it has been delayed once again, but the wait is ended, and we can expect to see more Proton X70s on the roads in the near future.
We also hope that the firm maintains the same high level of quality in locally produced equipment. In many circumstances, automobile manufacturers lower the car's quality when compared to CBU models. However, we trust that Proton Pakistan would not follow suit.
