Proton’s online poll inviting the public to vote for a name for the SUV has attracted a huge number of responses – as of April 11, over 69,000 Facebook users have responded to the poll, and the video itself has been viewed over 167,000 times. The poll started on April 2.

Proton’s vice president of sales and marketing, Abdul Rashid Musa said “the new SUV is a significant milestone for Proton and therefore we wanted to share it with our fellow Malaysians as it also represents a symbol of national achievement. We did not expect such a big number of responses in such a short time and feel humbled by the interest shown in the first premium C-segment SUV produced by a Malaysian automotive brand.”

Those who took the poll will stand to win a share of RM100,000 worth of gift vouchers. Five winners will be chosen based on the best reasons given for the name, and each will win exclusive VIP invites to the launch of the vehicle, as well as the honour of being among the first people to test drive and experience the SUV at Proton’s test track in Shah Alam.

There is also the option of proposing an alternative name for the SUV. When chosen, one lucky winner will be rewarded with a 4D/3N tour package to Hangzhou and Shanghai for two, and this is inclusive of a visit to the Geely’s HQ.

“As the official launch date of the SUV approaches, Proton will embark on more activities to build product awareness and excitement among Malaysians. As we have shared in the teaser, the SUV will be the first product jointly developed with our partner Geely, [and it] will be the starting point of a new model range for the company, so we want as many people as possible to get up close and take a look at the future of Proton,” Rashid added.

The closing date for submission is April 30, 2018 at 11.59pm. Winners will be announced closer to the launch date of the SUV, set to be in Q4 of 2018.
