Proton

Founded in 1983 by then PM Mahathir Mohamad, Proton is Malaysia’s most well known indigenous car maker. Many of its early models were Mitsubishi designs. Today it produces a mix of vehicles designed in-house, and some that are lightly restyled Mitsubishi models.

Proton, through its parent company, owns English sports car company Lotus.
