Proton has announced its support for the government’s vehicle discount coupon initiative for vehicles damaged by flooding. The RM 1,000 voucher will be accepted by Proton as payment for repairs to flood damaged vehicles. This is in addition to the 50% discount on select parts, discounted labor, and free towing and exterior cleaning services that were announced earlier.
