VW planning new budget brand to fight Dacia, Datsun
I rather think the government won’t allow them to bring in the cars. Priced too low, would compete with Proton (which is able to produce cars at insanely low costs). Really Proton should start selling cars overseas. Especially the Preve. A comparable Kia cee’d is around 18k Euro, where the Preve CFE, including taxes, is around 11k. Set aside some money for dealerships, warranty (7 years) and keeping stocks of spare parts and there is still money left for nice profits, while still being cheaper than the Koreans and Skoda. Only Dacia offers more car for the money, but really it is a Vios spec car then. Empty, with ancient technology and a disregard for safety.
