Malaysia’s Proton to resume car shipments to Egypt in October

Malaysia’s Proton-brand cars to Egypt are due to start again next month after a three-year hiatus, according to Paultan. The first batch of 225 cars, out of a total 1,000 slated for a 2018 delivery, are due to arrive at the Alexandria port on 6 October. Another 280 cars will be shipped out after, deputy CEO Datuk Radzaif Mohamed said. The new Saga and Exora models will be among the vehicles made available through local distributor Alpha Ezz El-Arab. Shipments from Proton had ceased after the EGP float in 2016 “made it impossible to price new stock competitively.”
