Malaysian NGV Sdn Bhd is in talks with Proton on equipping Proton models such as the Proton GEN2 with NGV kits for the export market. These cars would be marketed to countries where NGV is a mainstream fuel, like Pakistan.
No word about offering the NGV Proton vehicles to the local market though. NGV is still pretty hard to find here. I’m sure everyone has at least seen once in their lives a long queue of taxis lining up and the sole NGV pump at a petrol station. Even outside the petrol station, taxis queue up and park by the roadside with the engines off, waiting for their turn to get more gas.
Malaysian NGV plans to set up 100 more NGV stations around the country. Their aim is about 250,000 NGV cars on the road by 2010.
