Proton has announced that bookings for the new Saga has reached 4,000 units since the car made its launch debut less than two weeks ago, with 500 units already delivered to customers. Meanwhile, the Saga’s larger sibling, the Persona, managed to rack up 14,000 bookings, with the national carmaker delivering 2,000 units already.

The monthly sales target for the Persona, which was launched on August 23, is 3,000 to 4,000 units per month, whereas for the newly-introduced Saga, it is 5,000 units per month. The latest figures certainly appear to show that Proton is well on track to achieve both goals.

Both the Saga and Persona are offered in a total of four variants – Standard MT, Standard CVT, Executive CVT and Premium CVT – but where the Saga is powered by a 1.3 litre VVT engine, the Persona has a larger 1.6 litre VVT mill instead.

As for Proton’s flagship, the Perdana, 720 units of the D-segment model have been collected by customers out of more than 1,100 bookings received. The Perdana is offered with either a 2.0 litre or 2.4 litre engine, and is based on the previous-generation Honda Accord.

This year, Proton has already introduced three of four new models, beginning with the new Perdana, followed by the Persona and Saga. Next up will be the “Proton Ertiga,” which has been spotted undergoing the final stages of testing on multiple occasions.
