Malaysia's Proton Sees Promising Future for Electric Cars in Asia
BAHARU -- In view of escalating oil prices and depleting reserves, the world's auto giants are in the race to produce hybrid cars powered by a combination of combustion engine and electric motor.
National carmaker Proton Holdings Bhd, however, takes a different approach -- to come out with a pure electric vehicle (EV).
Proton Corporate Planning General Manager Dr Badrulhisham Mohd Ghazali said an EV would be a sure thing based on several studies conducted by the company.
"If we look it now, China is actively developing EV technologies. Among the reasons are economic and political factors," he told Bernama at the recent Proton Carvinal here.
