proton preve hatch video shoot 01

It looks like it’s getting ever closer to the official launch of the Proton Preve Hatchback – photos of the P3-22A undisguised have started making their way around on the Net, and to add to that, we have a couple of snaps of the car taken by reader Sheikh Zaid, who caught this metallic blue example at Sentral.

All the cladding – save tape to mask the logos (front visible in pix, rear too presumably) – is gone, and there’s a reason for the undisguised car being in such a high traffic area; Sheikh says that a video crew was filming the car. Presumably, it’s a TVC shoot.

We’ve seen the metallic blue example before, earlier in the month, but it was still clad, so the main pic here offers the cleanest view so far of the car, though there’s still no dead-on view of the rear. UPDATE: Rear pic courtesy of reader Larry Yeong added to gallery.

Earlier, back in June, a trailer load of the five-door hatch was caught on camera, and besides the previous set with the blue car, there was also a video of the hatchback undergoing night evaluation trials a couple of weeks ago. Still, if they’re shooting a video of the car, then it’s all pointing to an introduction soon.
