Many ask about what will to Proton now that it’s the DRB-Hicom group. It is very

The DRB-Hicom group is currently by a group of hard-headed businessmen and their hands on such an like Proton, an independent that can design and make its own from the ground up, the group can do if it can harness the hungry demand of the market.

This is not so far-fetched the first steps to the China were started more a decade ago by former Proton Tan Sri Tengku Mahaleel Tengku

We saw the scenario being played out at the AutoChina2012 Beijing on Monday Datuk Syed Zainal Syed Mohamed Tahir, the Proton managing director, was out the T5 SUV at the Engineered by Lotus booth.

The T5 is the of Proton-Lotus engineering’s partnership Youngman, a family-owned company in Zhejiang province, which has now itself as “Engineered by Lotus”. One see the Youngman brand – it’s now by Lotus” and the only carryover the past is the logo of a raging

There, basking in the bright of the show was the T5, one of the most beautiful at the show. And this is saying than a thing or two because is AutoChina2012 in Beijing, the capital of the biggest car market.

There 1,125 cars on show, about 90 world debuts carmakers in China and another 34 new from overseas carmakers.

by Lotus Engineering, a Proton the T5 SUV shares the Gen-2 platform but is It will use engines from CPS upwards and will be priced in the RMB range (about RM50,000-RM75,000) to be Production is expected to start year.

Technically, it’s for a right-hand drive version to be and the model sold worldwide of course, Malaysia.

This us to the second most frequently If Proton has a joint venture a foreign brand, let’s say wouldn’t it lose its identity as a car?

This is an easy because as things are moving in the car industry, companies are buying in each other’s equity and technology and platforms.

Denza. for is the name of a prototype car that has jointly developed by Germany’s and China’s BYD, a manufacturer of including electric cars, has its roots in making batteries for devices. Indeed, it is the world’s battery maker.

France’s Peugeot 308 turbo and Mini share the 1.6 turbo where one company makes the head and the other company the engine block. The name of the in the world car industry is more and about minimising costs by volumes.

At the end of the day, it’s not Proton is a Malaysian car. whether Proton can be a profitable in the long term and add value to as an employer and an earner of foreign

China’s biggest carmaker, Volkswagen Co Ltd, is a joint between SAIC and VW. This was first joint-venture with a carmaker and to keep VW on its toes, was allowed to form a second JV car the Shanghai General Motors Co

The floodgates were opened and as 22 years after the first was held, China has become the largest car market for three years with 18.5 units sold in 2011.

far easier for Proton to have a venture with a China car like Youngman because the process is more direct a German company like VW, is Europe’s largest car maker.

These types of multinational have evolved through than a century, for instance is a 126 year old company, and it has grown its governance procedures and the delegation of guidelines into documents piled on each other, are than a Bible.

There are of obstacles to Proton entering Many of them have resolved or are being resolved the slow payment for work by Lotus Engineering.

There are quality issues. This is to have delayed the launch of the T5 for two

There is also the question of Youngman is obliged to, or wants to, its T5 model with Proton Youngman has purchased the rights to the drawings. The commercial terms of agreement might include the rights of refusal to Proton.

Mahaleel, the former Proton must be credited for Proton’s approach to China’s car market. led to a partnership with Goldstar and the was that Goldstar would LHD Proton cars for sale in thus providing Proton the economies of scale – whether for CKD or components – that a carmaker to keep costs competitive.

This partnership didn’t for various reasons, including Mahaleel’s departure from in 2005.

When Syed took over the reins, he the foray into China and the partnership with Youngman. And in where almost everything is where there is more one look-alike of iconic cars the Hummer and Rolls-Royce Phantom, knows the value of prestige and now itself as “Engineered by Lotus”.

this kind of dynamism makes the China car market the competitive in the world with a ruthlessness that has brand with a Western orthodoxy
