Suzuki to Assemble Cars in Malaysia

Global Worldtrade Sdn Bhd. may start assembling Suzuki cars in Malaysia.

The cars would be distributed by Suzuki Malaysia Automobile Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of DRB-HICOM Bhd.

Suzuki Malaysia Automobile Sdn Bhd has signed a distributorship and an import agreement for completely built-up (CBU) Suzuki motor vehicles and spare parts.

They will distribute the Suzuki Swift 1.5L, Suzuki APV 1.6GLX and the 1.6GL, Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.0L.

Proton Sports Car

Watch out for the Proton sports car. My friend in Proton informs me that it is based on the Lotus Elise and while he was reluctant to reveal the price, I gathered that it will cost somewhere around RM 150K. (1US$=RM3.8)

If it is released as planned, it would become Malaysia's first sports car and not the Esna Venera.
