Proton today deployed a range of its electric and hybrid car for running trials by various government agencies. 8 units of test vehicles were handed over today at the ceremony in Putrajaya. Proton chairman, Dato' Nadzmi Salleh handed the car to our Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The 6 car handed today include 3 units of EV Saga and 5 units of REEV Exora. The Saga, as the name implies is a full-fledge electric vehicles. The charging stations is provided by Proton at ministries office involved in the program as well as providing the home charger system for the personnel assigned to evaluate the car.
