the new proton,nice isn't
small size exterior compare with big interior size
the teaser for a concept car can u imagine how big this car?
huhu with the now concept car from proton zul actually proud with only malaysian car maker can produce concept car,proton with the high class technology,the concept is simply says “How can you fit an SUV into a city car?” and leaves us with the image above showing a big boxy SUV tailing a much smaller compact city car.
that cool man because not ilke other car malaysian car maker use another company car, re-batch its hundred percent, assemble its in malaysia and they claimed national car and sell with higher tag price and people from malaysia buy it because have dna from big companies, but our national car has more value and gud in term of specification, for example, if u are the car enthusiast, try to drive cheaper 10k new saga compare it with perodua myvi and my friends can feel what i try to say ;)
Proton’s new concept car designed by Italian design house Italdesign-Giugiaro. The vehicle looks like a supermini with a tallish roofline, and according to Autocar it is about 3,350mm long – that’s a good 360mm shorter than the Proton Savvy. There is no attempt to look space age with ultra curvy rooflines that hurt rear passenger room – this is clearly a design that’s quite suited to go into production with some minor modifications.
The concept car will showcase a series hybrid powertrain that works much like the system that Chevrolet is using for the Volt. It uses an internal combustion engine fitted at the front that runs in an efficient powerband to recharge lithium ion batteries. These batteries then power and electric motor that drives the car. From what I can understand from the Autocar story, the internal combustion engine does not power the wheels directly. The car’s platform is a new platform that’s designed to accomodate all the necessary hybrid drive elements such as batteries in a space efficient and safe way.
Lotus had previously showcased such a system at the Frankfurt 2009 show so given Proton’s obvious connections to Lotus, the powertrain in this concept car might just be one and the same. Or it might not – we’ll have to wait for official details to find out. The Lotus Range Extender system uses a 1.2 liter 3-cylinder single cam 4 valves per cylinder engine that weighs only 56kg dry and is optimized for 2 RPM points – 20hp at 1,500rpm and 47hp at 3,500rpm. Peak torque is 107Nm at 2,500rpm.
the specification is very2 technical here, but for automotive diploma holder, the car has a big space inside, lightweight, have high fuel efficiency,but with a body is more small then our proton savvy
congratulation proton, keep the gud achievement and make us proud
