Proton Announces a Price Increase for Only One Vehicle

April 21, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

Al-Haj Automotive has increased the price of the Proton Saga, joining the recent price hike trend. Proton has already raised the price of the X70, which now begins at Rs. 5.4 million.


Pakistan Is Now Proton’s Largest Export Market

The following are the updated pricing for Saga versions, which are effective immediately:

VARIANTSOLD PRICE(PKR)Price Before May 10 (PKR)Price After May 10 (PKR)Increase (PKR)

ACE Automatic2,399,0002,509,0002,619,000200,000

The new pricing have been introduced in such a way that customers who book Saga before May 10 will pay 50% of the increased cost, while those who book cars after May 11 will pay 100% of the increased rate.

The price increase from Proton Saga is similar to those from Kia and Changan. Nonetheless, the Saga is Pakistan’s cheapest sedan, with the potential to become one of the country’s best-selling vehicles.


What is Causing Pakistan’s Automobile Costs to Rise?

Pakistanis could expect further price rises in the next days, since all automakers have announced price hikes one by one.

Al-Haj Rolls Out the First Locally Assembled Proton-X70

Al-Haj Rolls Out the First Locally Assembled Proton-X70

January 20, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / News Pakistan

Through its state-of-the-art car assembly factory, Al-Haj Automotive (Proton Pakistan) has finally rolled out the first locally made Proton X70. It is described by Proton as “the first intelligent SUV to be produced in Pakistan.”

After a lengthy wait, the locally manufactured Proton X70 has finally begun to roll off the production lines. The car was first introduced in Pakistan in December 2020, and many clients are still waiting for CKD manufactured units to arrive. The official Proton Pakistan website, however, states that delivery of the locally produced X70 would begin in March 2022.


The X70 SUV is now available in two models:

Customers in Pakistan may rejoice, since there is a strong indication that the SUV would be available in showrooms soon as a locally produced version.

  • Executive All-Wheel Drive (AWD) that costs PKR. 4,590,000
  • Premium Front Wheel Drive (FWD) that costs PKR. 4,890,000

Although Proton claims the X70 as Pakistan’s first intelligent SUV, the honor goes to the DFSK Glory 580 Pro, an intelligent 7-seat CUV with 100 voice commands, including 28 that are particularly suited for Pakistan. Furthermore, the car has already been in the hands of Pakistani clients for almost a year.

Furthermore, as automakers in Pakistan are already in the process of announcing updated pricing, the impact of the current tariffs and taxes imposed by the government in the recently approved supplementary finance bill is likely to be felt on both Saga and X70. Al-Haj Proton, on the other hand, has yet to release new prices for its models.

Al-Haj Proton Shares Exciting News About Car Deliveries

Al-Haj Proton Shares Exciting News About Car Deliveries

August 31, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

Following a decrease in the COVID-19 infection rate in Malaysia, Proton’s production and sales activities have been restarted. As a result of this event, Al-Haj Proton has stated on its social media account that it is working hard to guarantee that automobiles are delivered to clients as soon as possible.

According to the official notification, the company’s restart of operations would allow it to not only assure ease in the importation of CBUs, but also to delve into local assembly of its cars.
The business has indicated on many occasions that their assembly facility in Pakistan is nearing completion, however CKD activities were halted due to challenges in international shipment during the current Coronavirus outbreak in Central and South Asia.
Now appears to be the ideal moment for Al-Haj Proton to focus on establishing a significant market presence, since the business is going to face stiff competition from BAIC, which has recently entered the Pakistani automobile market.

In the A-segment sedan category, BAIC, particularly with its D20 sedan, is anticipated to offer Proton stiff competition, as the aforementioned car competes directly with the Proton Saga. With the upcoming development, it will be fascinating to watch how Proton manages to get a greater market share.
