It’s all heading towards the much-awaited launch of Proton’s P3-21A sedan – according to Proton MD Datuk Seri Syed Zainal Abidin, the car will be launched by the end of this month.

Of course, that means that there’s still time to tease the vehicle, and the latest run is via video, with the car being featured in a TV3 Buletin Utama snippet. The clip does the beguile bit via the usual silhouette play, but there are glimpses of details, like with the engine start/stop button, paddle shifters, steering wheel-mounted function controls as well as a distinct framing of the front and rear light assemblies.

Bookings for the car are set to begin nationwide from March 14, which is also the day that the company kicks off its five-day POWER OF 1 event at Bukit Jalil. Reports elsewhere say the model is expected to be launched in Indonesia and Thailand by this year and in Australia next year.
