Proton S70 sales update – over 2,000 units delivered in May, best-selling C-segment sedan; 9,583 total units

Deliveries of the Proton S70 have reached a total of 9,583 units since the sedan was launched back in November last year. This figure includes the 109 units delivered in December 2023 as well as the current year-to-date tally of 9,474 units for 2024.

The latter was revealed in Proton’s May 2024 sales results, where the company said 2,011 units of the S70 were sold in that month. Since the start of this year, sales of the S70 have crossed 2,000 units in a month three times, namely in February (2,314 units), March (2,072 units) as well as May.

The only months where sales of the S70 were below 2,000 units in a month so far this year were January (1,442 units) and April (1,635 units). With 9,474 units sold as at the end of May 2024, the S70 is the best-selling C-segment sedan in the country this year.

The S70 is offered in four variants, with the Executive being the entry-level option priced at RM73,800 on-the-road without insurance. This is followed by the Premium at RM79,800, the Flagship at RM89,800 and the range-topping Flagship X at RM94,800.

All variants are powered by a 1.5 litre turbocharged inline-three petrol engine rated at 150 PS (148 hp or 110 kW) and 226 Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed wet dual-clutch transmission.

    Will s70 enter Thai or indon market? Aussie market? Bangladesh? With barely 2000 unit a month, that will take 100 months to reach 200k units .. if I m not wrong 200k unit is breakeven point for new model investment.. unless it is less coz they share parts from china….

    • its not an entirely new model. Proton did the left hand drive conversion and introduced the turbo engine to this model (Its not offered anywhere else). The cost should be significantly lesser than developing a new model.

    • It depends. Because the car is develop in China and not Malaysia, should be lesser. The major change that they did compared to Geely is the engine. Other than that, looks to be identical.

    after decades of making car, proton still cant “take the lead” in a rebadged car? shame shame shame.

    like my momma used to say, if you cant make it better, dont change it. Why not just sell the same geely with a lower price here in Malaysia? People who buy the S70 would be from lower income anyway

    it is funny hearing you praise the ride & handling, when it is so noisy inside the car. such loud humming and road grinding noise from your video review. How is that a good ride?

      Ya, agreed. Test drove it few times. Don’t quite understand what’s the fuss about the NVH greatness over. The engine noise is really another world. And the vibration. Imagine new car already like this. After few years, when the engine mounts starts to degrade…you get free osim vibration. Lol!

    • Over rated P1..A clear and present danger on Jun 06, 2024 at 9:38 pm

      All car lovers know the City and Vios are in a different league,compared to proton S70.
      S70 should not be classified as C segment.It should remain in B segment.
      Taking a China car n converting to right handed version..u wanna compare with Japanese Honda n Toyota?
      Come on,it is like Division One verses Champions League football..so much of QC difference.

      Cannot lah like this! P1 gotta “move up” the segment…baru lah boss sana…konon. Kalau stay kat segment…kalah teruk kaw kaw…ini-lah jaguh kampung syok sendiri. Bagus! Terbaik P1. Keep it up ya! Lol.

      Kalau nanti P1 kuar kereta proper C-segment. Nanti dia org market ini ke D-segment pulak. Sure konfirm kalah kaw kaw semua kereta conti sana. Jaguh D-segment P1 nanti. Dun play play oh!

      Terhebat marketing P1!
