Thanks to small dimensions in the city the car became irreplaceable because all inconveniences connected with its parking automatically disappeared.

For example, in 1997 Proton released more than 230 thousand cars, over all country the huge number of firm service stations was.

Quite recently production of new models of Proton City cars which it was initially planned to let out from the new plant constructed in the territory of the country was arranged.
