Part of Proton's concept car series called Proton Emas that was just unveiled at Geneva's 80th International Motor Show, the Proton Emas Country portrays EMAS as an urban SUV.  It's overall length is 3550 mm, hatchback with three doors.

Passengers could easily get in the car with large doors measuring longer than 1350 mm and the rear seats are fitted 120 mm further forward than the five door hatchback model.

Compared to Proton Emas that has only have 4 seats, Proton Emas Country comes with 5 seats. This is accomplished by replacing the 2 independent rear seats with a sliding three seater that could be well-adjusted for passengers comfort at the back.

The sliding rear seat can be folded to increase the baggage area volume from 390 liters to roughly about 780 litres.

To create noticeable off road look, radial ribbing are used to toughened the wheel arches, perimeter base, sidesill and bumper. Plus, the low the lower part of the tailgate are highlighted by a bronze metallic finish. 

The PROTON shield is placed at the top of a grille surmounting a large longitudinal air intake. The two fog lights are round and embedded into the body. Metal inserts are used to toughened the lower part of the front bumper, rear bumper and the side-sills.

The car also has the following features.

  • High tech multifunction display
  • Good aerodynamic for better fuel efficiency
  • Excellent visibility with panoramic glass
  • By having compact design, it's easier to park at tight spot.

Proton Country is powered by a serial hybrid plug in drive system that was designed by Lotus Engineering. It can run on petrol, ethanol, methanol or natural gas.

It includes a 3 cylinder 1.2 litre internal combustion engine developing 38 kW at 3500 rpm.

The front transverse internal combustion engine is connected to a generator and serves only to recharge the 11.5 kWh capacity lithium ion batteries.

Drive is assured by an electric motor with continuous power of 45 kW and 75 kW peak power. It can achieve the maximum torque of 240 Nm.

Proton Emas Country can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h within 14 seconds and has top speed of  170 km/h.

In hybrid configuration, the battery range is about 50 km. By using a 240-volt outlet it takes 3 hours to fully recharge the battery.

      You're right Mr HP, they need to conduct more testing and be more aggressive in coming up with new concept cars in the future.
