The waiting period for the Proton X50 is anywhere from three to six months now, depending on the variant you plonk money down for. That’s what close to 30,000 bookings will do though.
Now you might be thinking, “Ain’t nobody got time for that,” and you’d be right. The next best option is to lease one from the country’s favourite multi-marque leasing programme; Flux (we just like them). They’re actually Malaysia’s premier all-inclusive monthly car subscription service.
Following the introduction of the Proton X70 into their fleet, they’ve inducted the X50 in Flagship or Premium trims in shades of Snow White, Jet Grey and Passion Red into their fleet. It starts at RM1,995 per month for a 36-month subscription of the X50 Flagship. As is the deal with Flux, the price is inclusive of everything such as roadtax, insurance, maintenance as well as wear & tear. Also, as is the norm with Flux, the 36-month subscription will result in the lowest price, opt for a shorter subscription and the monthly rate goes up.
Flux’s concierge service delivers a door-to-door service and is also on hand for all your maintenance and documentation needs. If all your documents check out, you can get your X50 in seven days of approval.
If you have a current ride that you want to trade-in to take on a Flux subscription, they’ll even handle that for you by evaluating your car and assisting you with the transaction if both parties come to an agreeable price.
In addition to this, all Flux cars come with 24/7 nationwide unlimited roadside assistance, emergency dispatch services and car theft recovery.
If you fall in love with the X50 and want to buy it outright after the lease period ends, you can do so with the guaranteed future value (GFV) of RM78,000 under Flux’s Subscribe to Own programme.
Additionally, the X50 is also available for corporate subscription through Flux Business Class.
You can head to the website here to browse their fleet and if you reserve your X50 today, you can start driving it before the New Year. For more information, contact Flux Customer Service at firstname.lastname@example.org or 03 6411 5611.
