The announcement from the automaker detailed that it will ensure stringent enforcement of COVID-19 preventive measures and that the entire staff is mandated to wear masks in the dealerships and showrooms. Additionally, customers will have to book appointments prior to visits so that the company may serve a limited number of customers at a time.

The company added that 86 percent of its staff is fully vaccinated and 98 percent is partially vaccinated to enable the running of operations without the risk of infections. It highlighted that only fully vaccinated staff members will be permitted to work in the car dealerships.

However, the press release issued by the company did not specify when the company will begin exporting CBUs to other countries, which makes its fate in Pakistan uncertain again. The deliveries of the booked Proton vehicles in Pakistan have been delayed for several months, resulting in the customers growing weary of the company’s slow progress.

Al-Haj, Proton’s business partner in Pakistan, has stated multiple times that the local assembly plant is near completion and will soon become operational but this is yet to materialize and is a cause of concern for both car buyers and the carmaker.
