Their CKD operations in Bangladesh is handled by PHP Group at their production facility in Chittagong. Thus far, PHP Group has assembled 35 units of the Proton Exora, Preve and Saga.
At the soft launch, PHP Group chairman Sufi Mohamed Mizanur Rahman said that the company will be selling its newly-assembled cars at an affordable price. On top of that, PHP Group hopes that buyers will purchase new Proton cars instead of used or reconditioned cars from overseas. The company has also recently officiated a new Proton showroom in Chittagong.
When asked about the retail price or production capacity, PHP Group was unable to confirm a figure.
