KUALA LUMPUR: Proton Holdings Bhd is looking to commercialise its electric vehicles in 2013.
The vehicles, which are now in the test fleet stage, will be brought to the commercial front to cater to an increasing demand for full electric cars, Proton Holdings director Datuk Zainuddin Che Din said.
“Currently, we have already delivered three Proton Saga EV and five units of the Proton Exora Range Extender EV to the Government for the test fleet.
“In the process of commercialising the vehicle, we are looking to provide at least 200 Range Extenders and 150 Proton Saga EV’s to the Government by the end of next year,” he said here yesterday.
He said the cars would be competitively priced once commercialised.
The Proton Saga EV is expected to be sold at RM70,000 and the Proton Exora Range Extender at about RM100,000.
“The price will be cheaper and competitive for a full electric car in the country,” said Zainuddin, who is also the project director of Proton’s Green Tech Department.
He said that to accommodate the needs of the electric cars once commercialised, Proton and the Government were working on a mechanism to build infrastructure to place charging centres.
“The charging stations will be placed initially in Putrajaya, Cyberjaya and certain prime locations in Kuala Lumpur. — Bernama
