National car manufacturer Proton Holdings Berhad is organising an open day called Alami Proton this weekend (September 27-28), at its Centre of Excellence in Shah Alam.

Aside from test drives of Proton vehicles, R3 and Lotus cars, the event will offer visitors the rare opportunity to view Proton’s manufacturing methods as well as get a closer look at the company’s latest technological developments. On the cards are tours of the Research and Development (R&D) facilities and Medium Volume Factory (MVF) at the automaker’s Shah Alam manufacturing plant, where the Proton Exora and Inspira are built.

Other exhibits will include a display of products and services from Proton vendors such as Robert Bosch, TRW, Delloyd Industries and KYB-UMW Malaysia. Visitors will be able to get up close with the various technologies used to develop a Proton car, from performance and styling to the safety aspects.

To keep families entertained, plenty of activities are planned, and these include wall-climbing, kart racing, laser tag and face painting. Proton’s new Iriz will also be featured at the event, with the highlight being a lucky draw for visitors to win the B-segment hatchback. Other lucky draw prizes include various bicycles and motorcycles.
