Proton has begun a two-week Festival Proton 1 Malaysia nationwide road show, which will showcase its past and present, as well as provide a glimpse of its future. The roadshow will make 11 stops around Peninsular Malaysia – with things having begun at Stadium Indera Mulia in Ipoh over the weekend – and will include a total of 180 participants and a convoy of 60 Protons, including 25 cars from various official Proton car clubs. Alor Star, Kangar, Penang, Kuala Terengganu, Kuantan, Batu Pahat and Melaka are among the stops.

A mobile exhibition will showcase the company’s accomplishments over the last 25 years, and the vehicles on display will include a couple of the KLIMS concept car debutants, the Jebat and Kasturi. Also to be seen are the Satria Neo Super 2000 rally car, Exora Extended Range Electric Vehicle as well as the Emas hybrid concept, and a Proton Design studio will allow visitors a chance at having a go at digital sketching and clay modeling.

Here’s when the roadshow gets to where you are …

The carnivals at each stop will include a mini auto-show, numerous fun-filled activities for the family and children, and concert performances and appearances by renowned local artistes, including Jaclyn Victor, Adibah Nor, nasyid group Rabani, Dayang Nurfaizah and Amy Search.

Proton will also be playing host to a list of handicapped organisations and orphanages from every state in the Peninsular to take part and enjoy the celebrations. As for Proton car owners, there’ll be a dedicated service crew at the carnivals, so you’ll be able to take advantage of a free 18-point vehicle safety check.

The event ends on December 31 with a grand finale concert held at the Proton Centre of Excellence as a celebration and countdown to New Year’s Eve.
