Kelahiran Exora-Kebanggaan Proton

Terima kasih kerana sudi singgah di blog saya. Saya menghargai perkongsian pendapat dan cerita di blog ini.

Proton Exora Crash

Proton has sent the Proton Exora for crash testing using the Applus+ IDIADA facility in Spain. The tests were required to engineer the Exora to meet Euro NCAP 4 star standards, which Proton claims the Exora will be able to achieve based on its tests conducted at IDIADA according to Euro NCAP test specifications.

In this story are tables listing the tests - note that P0 and P1 denote two different stages of prototypes, so the earlier P0 car would have failed some tests which the P1 car passed later because of revisions to the prototype specs.

The Exora was designed to be able to achieve a 4 star Euro NCAP equivalent of crash safety but of course you can’t just rely on your engineering data for that, you have to actually crash it and see what happens, and if it doesn’t go as to what you predicted, go back to the drawing board and fix it.

A total of 32 Proton Exora crash test vehicles were destroyed in various tests including a rollover test. The cost of these vehicles amounted well into a Ringgit figure that is 8 digits long, because at the early developmetn stages you are essentially making a few nearly one-off parts, so when things are not produced in volume they are very expensive.

These videos have already been inserted into the launch, specs and price story that I published right after the Exora launch ceremony, but here they are again after the jump for those who missed them.

  4. Shifu67,

    Masing-masing ada alasan. Tapi Proton belajar daripada kesilapan. Mengharapkan belas ehsan semata-mata tak cukup.

    Setakat ni, Pesona mantap. Exora ni, banyak pelaburan dalam R&D, dan kelahirannya boleh dibanggakan.

    Jatuh bangun Proton perlu ditunjangkan dengan kualiti.

    Insya Allah, Proton boleh maju...

  5. NRU72,

    Cute Exora ni, tapi dengan market tak menentu akibat gawat, semua syarikat pengeluar keretea berdepan risiko kurang permintaan.

    Proton kena teroka lebih banyak pasaran luar, tak boleh fokus kepada pasaran dalam negara semata-mata.

    Orang yang selalu condemn Proton mungkin bersandarkan model terdahulu: Iswara, Waja. Atau pun mungkin dapat maklumat kedua, bukan pengguna Proton.

    Hakikatnya, semua kereta ada masalah biarpun tak banyak. Mana mungkin Proton dapat puaskan hati semua pengguna.

  6. Lan,

    Nak beli tu, kena fikir dua kali, sebab nak buat utang baru ni, sakitlah sikit.

    Lagipun, aku dah beli Avanza awal lagi... Cukuplah dulu.

    Ada rezeki lain, bolehlah..
