SHAH ALAM: Proton Holdings Bhd has formalised a deal to sell and service electric vehicles (EVs) in Malaysia and Thailand from smart Automobile Co Ltd (smart) through a general distributorship agreement.
With the agreement, Proton will be the exclusive distributor in the two countries for smart, which is a premium EV joint-venture company between German-based Mercedes-Benz and China-based Geely Group.
Proton said the first model of the imported EVs by smart would be available in Malaysia in the fourth quarter of 2023.
“We have made an official request for the government to consider an extension of the excise duties and tax incentives for EVs.
“It would give the people a chance to enjoy the smart #1 at a reasonable and affordable price.
“We need this, as it takes some time for us to develop the completely built up unit,” Proton’s deputy chief executive officer Roslan Abdullah told a media briefing here yesterday.
“It’s still some time away, but we will usually open for bookings one month before the launch, but we will announce it when the time comes.
“It is a premium product and when it is compared with other EV brands – it’s difficult to imagine that it would be priced below RM150,000 per car,” he added.,
Proton aims to sell between 800 and 1,000 of smart EVs per year in Malaysia, according to Roslan.
