An LPG-powered variant of the Proton Preve is now available in Thailand, as the Proton Thailand website indicates. Available in Standard, Executive and Premium trims (like the regular Thai-market Preve), the Proton Preve LPG comes with a 58-litre tank in the boot and an electronic fuel gauge on the dashboard.
Powering the Standard and Executive trims is the 1.6 litre IAFM+ engine, mated either to a five-speed manual or a six-virtual ratio CVT. The Premium gets a 1.6 litre CFE turbo engine and a seven-virtual ratio ProTronic CVT with shift paddles. Of course, the engines have been modified to run on LPG.
Regardless of trim, the Proton Preve LPG gets ABS, EBD and 16-inch alloys wrapped in 205/55 rubber. Standard gets two airbags, Executive four and Premium six. Premium gets brake assist, traction control, ESC and auto headlamps all to itself.
The Proton Preve LPG is priced from 664k to 798k baht (RM67k-81k) in the Land of Smiles. In comparison, the regular Preve is priced from 625k to 759k baht (RM64k-77k).
A three-year or 100,000-km warranty, 24-hour roadside assistance, emergency medical assistance and concierge service are offered. The buyer can choose from Blue Lagoon, Tranquility Black, Solid White or Genetic Silver body colours.
