On October 27, 2020, the second model Geely exported to Proton Technology, the Proton X50, was officially launched in Malaysia, with a sale price of 79,200-103,300 ringgit. The new car is based on Geely Binyue and is currently sold in the Malaysian local market and will enter the ASEAN market in the future.
The Proton X50 launched this time is equipped with a brand-new intelligent networked ecosystem created by the ACO TECH technical team-Proton version GKUI19. At the same time, it is equipped with the E01 SoC deeply defined by Ekatong Technology. This is the first local project after the establishment of ACO TECH by the three parties of Ekatong Technology, Proton and ALTEL.
This time, the Proton version of GKUI19 equipped with the E01 chip is based on the preferences of Malaysian users and joins JOOX music for the first time. Proton X50 is also compatible with Android system and Apple system mobile phone screen projection function. Drivers and passengers can enjoy the fun of networking anytime and anywhere, and have made hundreds of optimization upgrades in vehicle voice control, real-time online navigation, and system OTA.
With the empowerment of Ekatong Technology, the Proton version of GKUI currently has more than 70,000 users and more than 40,000 daily active users. It is the number one smart connected car in Malaysia and the ASEAN region. Through the “dual engine drive” of Ekatong technology input and ACO TECH localization service, it opened the first of intelligent interconnection experience for Proton in the Malaysian auto market and brought new power to the revival of Proton.
In terms of appearance, the new car is not much different from the current models on sale. It still uses a polygonal front air intake grille, and a chrome trim strip that runs through the entire front connects the headlights on both sides and connects to the front air intake grille. The grids merge to form an integrated design. On the side of the body, the new car adopts a through-type waistline design, and the raised shape gives the new car a feeling of being ready to go.
In the interior, the new car will use the traditional mechanical pointer instrument panel and three-spoke multi-function steering wheel, and the central control will use a floating 8-inch multimedia touch screen. In terms of configuration, the new car is not equipped with Geely's "GKUI" smart ecosystem, but is equipped with mobile phone interconnection, front and rear USB ports, and Bluetooth connections. In terms of safety configuration, the new car is equipped with a tracking reversing imaging system, a tire pressure monitoring system, a brake assist system, a hill assist system, and cruise control.
