Mungkin ramai yang tertanya-tanya apakah benar kerajaan mahu menukar Proton Perdana yang sekarang ini menjadi kenderaan rasmi dengan Honda Accord? Dan pastinya ramai akan mengatakan kerajaan ibarat seekor ketam mengajar anaknya jalan betul...
Mesti ramai yang meroyan kata dulu bukan main lagi kutuk kerajaan Pakatan Perak tukar kenderaan rasmi dengan Camry..ini Allah bayar cash..senjata makan tuan...
Dari apa yang aku dapat, model yang akan mengantikan Proton Perdana ialah Proton Suprima...Proton Suprima ini telah dipadankan dengan kerangka Honda Accord..
Dengan erti kata lain, Model Proton Suprima ini akan menggunakan casis mirip Honda Accord dan enjin teknologi Petronas. Mungkin kah model Honda Accord yang akan mengantikan Proton Perdana ialah Proton Suprima?
Here’s a break from our Auto Shanghai 2013 coverage, and the topic is none other than our national carmaker Proton. The Star reports that Proton is expected to reveal a series of announcements in the next 12 months, including updates on the collaboration with Honda and the launch of new models.
“The PRM, though based on the Accord, would still entail cosmetic changes, and the engine could be based on the 2.0 litre Petronas engines Proton bought last year,” he said.
In December 2012, Proton acquired all of Petronas’ engine technologies as well as the associated technology patents at a cost of RM63 million. The deal encompasses seven engine technologies as well as 117 technology patents.
Back then, Proton chairman Datuk Seri Khamil Jamil was quoted in a Bernama report as saying that the acquisition gives his company immediate ownership of a family of normally-aspirated engines and turbocharged 2.0 litre engines, as well as a 2.2 litre turbocharged version to complement its existing Campro engine line-up.

Before Proton and Honda decided to work together, the national carmaker entered into a MoU with Nissan in March 2011 to conduct feasibility studies on areas of cooperation, including the potential use of Nissan platforms and powertrains. It was also rumoured that the Perdana replacement model will be based on the Nissan Fuga, but that, and the wider Proton-Nissan relationship didn’t work out.
Baru-baru ini juga, Proton telah mendaftarkan model Proton Suprema di Perbadanan Harta Intelek...bawah ni buktinya
Proton filed for a trademark for the name ‘Proton Suprima’ with the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO) back in January 2013, as eagle-eyed reader Ooi pointed out to us. Is this the name forProton’s new Perdana replacement model? The name certainly sounds apt – the name Suprima is clearly derived from the word supreme, which is befitting for a flagship car.
The latest word around the block is that Proton will be using the Honda Accord chassis as a base to develop the new Perdana Replacement Model. With the new Honda Accord just around the corner (it has already been launched in Thailand), it would not be surprising if the deal could be to use the Honda Accord model currently on sale in Malaysia to develop the new Proton Suprima.
Yang ini pulak?
Aku no Komen....
HE : Apapun kita tunggu dan lihat...jika benar kerajaan mahu tukar kereta Perdana dengan Honda Accord memang tak cerdik...kalau tukar model Proton Suprima dengan kerangka mirip Honda Accord tu aku setuju...
