LESYDEAR Automobile Sdn Bhd officially opened its new Proton 3S (sales, service and spare parts) outlet in Puchong. The event was officiated by Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo. Also present at the ceremony was Selangor state executive councillor for Local Government, Public Transportation and New Village Development Ng Sze Han, as well as Proton management and staff.

This facility situated in Bandar Bukit Puchong is easily accessible via the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP) and is primed to serve residents in the area. The new outlet which cost approximately RM2.5 million to build, consists of six bays and four hoists and can accommodate up to five display cars in the showroom.

Amenities such as a coffee bar, laptop charging ports and free WiFi are available for customers’ comfort and convenience.

With this outlet, customers in Puchong and the surrounding area can have access to 3S availability all under one roof.

To date, Proton has the largest number of 3S and 4S (sales, service, spare parts and spray) centres nationwide with a total of 120 centres.

Proton deputy CEO Datuk Radzaif Mohamed said aside from good product offerings, the strength of a company lies in its network.

“It is this reason that Proton has placed a lot of focus on network development and upgrading of its outlets. It is important because it serves as the main contact point between customers and us.

“Today, we are proud to say that as a result of this, customers are looking more favourably to the Proton brand as a purchase choice. We sold 100,821 cars last year and ranked second in the sales table nationwide, a position we have maintained since April 2019,” he added.

Gobind said: “The adoption of technology to make our lives better is something that we must embrace. It is crucial that we adapt quickly in order to reap and capitalise on the benefits of the digital age, as well as for our country to remain competitive and relevant in this sector.

“With an embedded eSIM card that allows connectivity to a 4G LTE network, the X70 epitomises modern automotive technology. I can see why the X70 has been so popular, and I am pleased to see that our national carmaker has seen a revival in its fortunes. I believe that it is possible for Proton to achieve its goal to be one of the top three carmakers in South-East Asia by 2027.”

For Lesydear Automobile director Billy Koh Beng Teck, joining Proton represents a huge opportunity.

“We are proud to be part of the Proton family. It has given us a platform to offer our customers great products and a superior ownership experience,” he said.
