Hi guys. I decided to experiment with something new for today. This is the first post that makes use of photos to illustrate the respective topic of discussion, instead of long, boring words.

This and all future articles of similar nature shall be referred to as  picture posts . Our first picture post is about Proton, the Malaysian automobile company#8217;s foray into foreign markets. I thought it would be fitting to compose this post in celebration of the upcoming launch of the Proton P3-21A sedan in March 2012.

The purpose of this article is to   r aise Malaysian awareness on the presence and success of Proton in foreign markets .

It has been over 26 years since the launch of the first Malaysian car, the Proton Saga. Since then, various models have rolled off the factories and found homes in all corners of the globe. There is a saying that goes, #8221; a picture speaks a thousand words #8221; ; I picked only the very best photos for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy !

Proton in the United Kingdom

The United Kingdom is one of Proton#8217;s biggest markets. Proton became the fastest growing new car company in the UK when it entered the market in the 1980s with the Proton Saga. Proton sold tens of thousands of cars in the UK during the 80s and 90s. However, with the turn of the century, Proton struggled to compete with other rivals, such as Hyundai, Kia and SEAT.

In 2010, Proton sold only 767 cars in the market, a far cry from the thousands of decades past.

Probably the most famous encounter of a Proton on British soil was in an episode of Mr. Bean. A Proton Iswara was used in a #8221; chase #8221; scene, where a golf ball had comically lodged itself into the exhaust pipe of the Iswara. The owner, unknowingly, started the car, only to blow the engine in the process. You can watch the episode here . Besides that, the Humberside Police of the United Kingdom use Protons as patrol cars.

Some of them are pictured below. Proton cars have also been used in the British Touring Car Championship ( BTCC ). Last but not least, two Satria Neo S2000 rally cars were used in a special Top Gear UK vs. Top Gear Australia challenge. The future of Proton remains uncertain in the United Kingdom.

Proton will need a major overhaul soon if sales are to improve here.
