There's something symbolic about delivering cars to government officials. It's almost a sign of endorsement, of faith in a brand or model, and that's exactly what the X70 has received as Proton delivered a single unit to the Ministry of Finance.
While it may just be one X70, it is part of 500 confirmed orders and over 400 delivered to date among Public Sector Super Scale (JUSA) officers. You will eventually be seeing more of these roaming around, especially as other auxiliary police and government servants have more flexibility in their transportation arrangements.
This news comes hot on the heels of the announcement of a fleet of Proton X70s being used as support for the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation Forum through 2020. Interestingly enough, it's evident that SPANCO has maintained their contract for maintenance and operation of government vehicles in the coming years, following the end of their previous contract.
