Proton has launched the X50 in Nepal

Following the success of the Saga and the X70 (launched in 2020 and 2021, respectively), Jagdamba Motors Pvt. Ltd, the authorised distributor of Proton vehicles in Nepal, has launched its new SUV model–the X50. The new X50 was unveiled by his Excellency, the Ambassador for Malaysia to Nepal,  Mohammed Faizal Abu Hasan.

Speaking at the event, Sahil Agarwal, Chairman of Jagadamba Motors, stated that the X50 was launched in Nepal upon seeing its success in the international market. Adding to that, Deepak Agarwal, CEO of Jagdamba Motors, said that Malaysia’s best-selling X50, which is loaded with more features than its competitors, will definitely attract a lot of customers.

The Proton X50 is Proton’s mid-level SUV that will sit below the X70. The SUV is offered in three variants: the Standard, the Premium, and the flagship–at a starting price of Rs 71.99 lakh.

Get to know more about the vehicle:


Design

The X50 gets a dual-tone exterior and comes with an aggressive front fascia, featuring LED projector headlamps (with integrated DRLs), automatic headlamps, and fog lamps. The rear looks plain with LED tail lights. Furthermore, the black cladding and quad exhaust tailpipes adds a sporty look to the rear-end of the vehicle.

On the inside, the SUV comes with a dual-tone interior, featuring leatherette-upholstered seats, a six-way adjustable driver seat, and electric power steering. On the dashboard sits a full-colour LCD cluster and an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system–compatible with both Apple Carplay and Android Auto–which can be further upgraded to 10.25 inches.


Engine

The Proton X50 is powered by a 1.5L turbocharged petrol-engine that delivers fuel using either multi-point injection or direct injection–depending on the variant. The Standard, Executive, and Premium variants get a multi-point injection system and generate a power of 150 hp and a torque of 226 Nm. And the TGDI (the flagship variant), with the direct injection system, generates 177 hp of power and 255 Nm. 

Both engines come mated to a seven-speed DCT with manual mode.
