Proton to export the Saga, Preve and Exora to Chile?

Proton Preve and Exora left hand drive Port Klang Chile-01

It appears national carmaker Proton will officially be making a re-entry into the Chilean market with three of its models soon. Malaysian ambassador to Chile, Datuk Dr. Mohammad Rameez Yahaya revealed as such in his Facebook page.

The initial three models are the Saga, Preve and Exora, all of which will be in a left-hand drive configuration. It’s said that the three models will arrive in Chile next month as test cars, while a launch is expected to take place in the country by April 2016, handled Chilean distributor Andes Motor.

Apparently, Rameez had a meeting with Andes Motor general manager, Jorge Green and the company’s commercial manager Maximiliano last week. “The company signed a distributor agreement with Proton, and will receive its first three models in December,” the announced.

It’s said that Andes Motor will import a minimum of 500 Proton cars annually over the next five years. According to the ambassador, the deal will increase trade between both countries by up to USD$6 million (RM26.2 million) a year.

Proton’s venture into the South American country dates back to the 1990s. The national carmaker previously sold the Proton Wira and the Satria there. It has to be mentioned, though, that this update follows a similar announcement made two years ago – a decision credited to the effectiveness of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA).

So, if proved accurate, do you guys think Proton will be hot in Chile?

        It’s better than doing nothing. Proton perform better quality than China products and it will give variety of cars option in Latin America. Besides these Latin region offer better taxes for Asian cars and it surely capable to provide similar car price with China.

They’re just complacently doing their bottom-feeder jobs while complaining day and night about the government because they can’t afford the things they want due to their low pay, and blame it on cronies, corruption, ministers, etc. Have they tried upgrading themselves in any way? Or contribute to the local economy in any way? Or provide any helpful suggestions to move our country and our industries forward? Zilch.

          Not surprisingly, most of these bashers belong to a specific demographic that has created a state-within-a-state in Malaysia and are happily living under their own coconut shells without mingling with the rest of Malaysia, hence their narrow-mindedness, sharp tongues and general arrogance.

      Latin america is used to having low standards for the cars sold there, just like India, Bangladesh, etc. It’s a safe market for Proton to venture into for gaining a greater market volume. Without market volume, there is no economies of scale for improvements.

        Yep, that’s true. Even our milo tin Axia and Vios are quite acceptable compared to some of the ancient Fiat, Chevrolet and VW cars they still sell in South America. I feel bad for them… always being exploited by foreign companies at the expense of local lives… sounds just like our UMW Toyota, no ?

        And yes, better for Proton to start with less competitive developing markets than to gamble everything on competitive developed markets like Europe and Australia. I bet Proton lost millions on their Australian re-launch… those same millions could have helped them out with markets like Egypt and Turkey, where they actually have a chance. Although, I still think their Australian re-launch was a good thing all-in-all, because it led to their 5-star ANCAP achievement and safety USP…

  • Well, it is a good step for proton/DRB Hicom, focus on the developing South American, indian continent and Asian market first. build a solid base, by selling cars will long warranty periods, and good after-sales service. Ensure that you assign account managers for each of your distributors and provide the necessary after-sales and engineering support. As much as it feels great selling in develop countries, markets there are saturated and ultra-competitive. Developing market will be more receptive if you could pitch your product at an acceptable price point and back it up with the necessary support…it is the first step, but if proton/drb-hicom preserve with this strategy and keep at it earnestly, surely they will be able to succeed and have the last laugh

    Ego and pride aside. Look at the long run. Proton will never succeed so why holding on and keep suffering losses in Billions at the expenses of the Rakyat.
    Had the best opportunity to dispose to VW some years ago but some dude manage to convince the Government to against it. The business model is simply not viable.
    Without the Gov’s protection Proton would have bungkus by the 3rd year of it operation.
    One way to succeed is Najib to approach UN and get UN to impose 300% tax on all the other makes around the world and by doing so Proton does not have any competition.

    This is good news ! It should have happened last year, but I’m just glad it ACTUALLY happened for once.

    Just to recap, the Prevé has thus far been exported to Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, Brunei, Mauritius and possibly Singapore. Proton also has a few testing units in the UK, but due to their inability to source greener, Euro V/ VI engines to pass local regulations, they couldn’t proceed with the UK launch. During the 2015 Alami Proton event, there were a few left-hand drive Prevé models for the test track joyride. These LHD Prevé models were meant for Middle Eastern markets. However, due to increased instability in the region, Proton decided to put any new Middle Eastern investments on stand-by. So far, Proton has produced around 70,000 Prevés.

    Proton is no stranger in Chile, as they’ve previously been in the market as early as June 1994. Proton exported the Wira saloon, Wira Aeroback, Satria and possibly Putra as well to Chile for a few years, and sales were quite decent. You can still see many on the roads there and on the used car listings. Chile has a sizeable automobile market, with a population of around 18 million citizens. They have similar GDP at PPP per capita figures as we do, but they’re considered a newly developed country (we are still developing).

    Korean cars are very popular there, and Chile is one of the strongest export markets for Chinese cars. Proton should have no problems blending in. Chile has a very open market policy and as of late, they no longer assemble cars (they only import them). In other words, Proton does not have to find a local partner to assemble their cars there to reduce import taxes. Proton will not have to invest too much, the cost of shipping a few thousand CBU Proton cars across the Pacific is still cheaper than assembling them in South America with CKD packs. And what with all the recent TPPA news, it should (supposedly) be easier for Malaysian companies to sell their products in TPPA member markets. Chile is one of the pioneers of the TPPA, they’ve been at it since 2006.

    I think the Exora is still fit for export, but I’m confused about the Saga here… is it the upcoming or current Saga ? Because as far as I know, Proton stopped exporting LHD Sagas and the last few Saga BLMs were sent to Egypt. And what about the Suprima S and Iriz ? Proton should export them to Chile too.

    I hope Proton will consider re-entering Iran and Russia soon. However, the investments for these markets will be huge, but I think it’ll be worth Proton’s while.

      Proton should take another stab at the Indian market. They have much more relaxed regulations which will allow necessary spec reductions to make Proton competitive with Suzuki-Maruti, Tata, and others. In such a large volume market that doesn’t mind driving cars with no airbags, no ABS, etc Proton has a good chance of selling lowest-common-denominator cars in large volumes, which will help with the ROI for the development of newer models for more demanding markets

      Untuk permulaan sahaja…kalau nanti dah berjaya proton akan eksport model baru ke sana….chery pun eksport kereta copycat mereka ke sana kenapa proton tidak boleh? Lagipun proton punya kualiti dan jenama hampir setaraf dengan pembuat kereta asli global….maksud setaraf tu awak semua kena faham betul2….tak banyak negara di dunia membangun buat kereta macam malaysia ni

    Proton used to export cars to Turkey but not much happening subsequently. Nothing much also for UK and Indon market. After getting sued by the Chinese, no headway also into China. Proton export markets are getting stuck and sucks. Now, Chile….any breakdown will take months for parts to arrive??
