Hybrids - Proton Persona Electric

KNNCCB!!!! thats my opening statement on the escalated fule prices and what-nots in BolehLand...

I for one do not give a flying f*&k on whatever reasons given by the powers that be in regards to the price hike of petrol...WTF, we are a petrol producing nation btw...and we still have to buy petrol at premium prices? On my last trip to the Middle East, I was informed by the loclas that gasoline cost 6 Dirhams for 6 gallons which is after their price increase, before that it was 3 Dirhams for 6 gallons. FYI, 1 Dirhams is equivalent to RM0.98 and lets presume that the gallons that they are talking about is US Gallons ok...that means 1 US Gallon is equivalent to 3.78 Litres.....do the math and go figure!!!!

I sincerely hope that more and more Hybrids will be introduced in BolehLand's market...at least give a chance for us poor sohais to offset the price hike lar...



Some sources say that Proton is making their move into the Electric market with its Persona...aptly donkey tagged as Proton Persona Electric

Another link to the so called Proton Persona news ( if its true ) is here at this link..

I for one, will gladly welcome such a move by Proton....IF

The Persona can really serve its purpose....IF

The build quality and QA is good...IF

The price tag is reasonable...IF

Spares and After Sales Service are up to the mark...IF

The touted Incentives for hybrids under the 2009 Budget is as real as what is announced..KNN:

EXEMPTION OF 100 PERCENT IMPORT DUTY & 50 PERCENT EXCISE DUTY ON NEW HYBRID CBU CARS, WITH ENGINE CAPACITY BELOW TWO 2,000 CC LITRE TO BE GIVEN TO FRANCHISE IMPORTERS. THE EXEMPTION IS FOR TWO YEARS

Lots of IFs

By the way, anyone of you have any idea on when is the launch? Year 2030?
