1. I think all the mystery of new Proton MPV will be answered. According to Paul Tan blog (thanks!), Proton has filed the design of the new Proton MPV with the UK Intellectual Property Office on the 24th of October 2008 and it was approved on the 4th of November 2008.
2. So meaning the patent and design has been finalized. And the patent looks as above. Don't trust me? What the heck engineers sending draft patent to the patent office if it is not being finalized right?
3. We can now see in full detail of how the new Proton MPV will look like, though it’s only the low resolution sketches that are available from the public UK IPO website. It looks pretty much similiar to the images of the model that appeared to be snapped in a Proton facility. Everything matches, including the chrome bar at the rear. The Proton MPV is scheduled to be released in early 2009.
4. Great or bad, pretty or ugly, this is our first national MPV. Be proud ok. To learn more about Proton news, go HERE. Till then. Jyane!
