As promised, online booking for the Proton X70 started today, with the X70 microsite going live at 10am. Proton’s first SUV is also the first Proton that can be booked online.

Here’s how it works. Customers are are required to provide their personal details, preferred X70 variant and colour, as well as the city and state where they wish to collect the car. Following payment of the booking fee, which is also done online, a system generated receipt will be sent to the customer’s email.

A Proton sales advisor will then contact the customer within seven days to process the booking. Booking fees are fully refundable should one change his mind.

How much? Proton is holding a “flash sale” from now till October 19 to promote the online booking platform. In this three-day period, one can book the Proton X70 with a fee of just RM99. Do this and you’ll get an ice cooler box worth RM200. Pay the remaining RM901 of the booking fee at a sales outlet and you’ll get a “branded dashboard camera” valued at RM300.

If you choose to pay RM1,000 online for the “privilege booking” (now until the launch date), Proton will give you two X70s – one being a 1:18 scale die-cast model of your actual SUV. All gifts will be handed over together with the X70 during delivery. The early bird gifts are also applicable to those who book the X70 via the traditional walk-in way.

Meanwhile, X70 customer previews are ongoing and the most recent one was held in Kuching from October 15-16. The next stops are in Kuantan and Ipoh, and the final session will be held in Kota Kinabalu next month.

We’ve covered the X70 to the best of our knowledge (of official information) so far, with separate articles on the Geely Boyue-based SUV’s four variants and specs, powertrain, safety and driver assist systems, connectivity and GKUI infotainment system. We’ve also discussed the C-segment SUV in the most recent episode of PT Talks. Once again, you can check out all the variants and specifications here.

The Proton X70 online booking page has some fresh images of the SUV, and we’ve captured them for you below. Check out the X70 microsite here.
