Proton will build be adding a few new acronyms to its model lineup. The Malaysian concern announced yesterday at the Kuala Lumpur Auto Conference that it has designs on revamping its offerings to include an SUV and an MPV, and the vehicles could speak with a British or Chinese accent. Confused? Proton hopes to develop the vehicles over the next two years with business partner Lotus, but the company has also been seen recently working with Chinese concerns Chery and Alado Corporation Sdn Bhd. Proton's plans call for a 120 day evaluation period as to whether it is feasible to cultivate complete knock-down vehicles (read: 'kit' vehicles for later reassembly) in China.
