John Oxley of Wheels24 says that a source inside Lotus told him that the Lotus Europa will be sold in Malaysia as a Proton.
He also reveals that the car will get an Opel/Vauxhall turbocharged 2 litre putting out 197hp and an Opel OPC engine putting out 240hp. Nice!
The car is supposedly set to be manufactured in Malaysia. Then again with Proton nothing is ever certain. Just google for Proton press releases and read then you’ll know. Never trust anything that the Proton PR department puts out. Apparently they don’t communicate with the rest of the company.
