    Selling your Proton the Motorway way

    Our dealer network is made up of over 5,000 dealers from all over the UK, placing your car in front of professional dealers ready to make their best offers.

    1. Get a free valuation

      Motorway’s valuation tool is built using clever data. All we need is your mileage and reg to get started and then we’ll give you an up-to-date valuation of your vehicle based on how cars just like it really have been selling. Our insights come from our own sale platforms as well as wider industry trends, so the valuation you get is always accurate to the day!

    2. Build your car profile

      Forget the old days of writing lengthy descriptions of your car in the hopes it might catch someone’s eye. At Motorway, we let your car do the talking. We’ll ask you a few simple questions, all easily answered with just a few taps of your phone. Just make sure to answer honestly, as dealers can’t make accurate bids if you aren’t being accurate about your car. We’ll walk you through the key angles you’ll need to photograph as well, and just like that, you have a great car profile that dealers won’t be able to resist!

    3. Sit back and relax

      And that’s it from you! You can relax and let us handle the rest. We’ll upload your car to our sales platform and alert our dealers. Here’s the clever bit. You don’t need to talk to a single dealer. Zero hassle. Instead, if a dealer likes your car, they have to make an offer. That’s it! After the sale we’ll be in touch to let you know your highest offer.

    4. Your car is collected for free from your home

      Your winning dealer collects your car from your home, no need for you to take it anywhere. They’ll give it a quick once over to make sure it matches your car profile and you’ll be paid by secure bank transfer – you should see funds in your account within one business day.

    A bit about Proton

    Proton is a Malaysian car manufacturer based in Shah Alam and has been in business since 1985. The brand is considered the national car brand of Malaysia, having been founded by the prime minister in the early ‘80s and initially wholly owned by the Malaysian government. The first Proton car, the Proton Saga, was released in 1985 and was made in collaboration with Mitsubishi. A notable early record for the brand was its entry into the UK market, making it the fastest selling make of new car to have ever entered the UK. Despite this, Proton hit a decline during the economic recession and once again turned to Mitsubishi, or rather, Mitsubishi’s former executive, Kenji Iwabuchi, to become managing director.

    The Proton Saga Iswara was released in 1992 and became popular in Malaysia as the vehicle of choice for taxi drivers ‐ many continue to be used for this purpose. Throughout the ‘90s, many of Proton’s models were rebadged versions of Mitsubishi cars, as well as Citroen models. In 1996, the brand acquired an 80% stake in Lotus Cars Limited. This new resource helped develop the Proton Satria GTi, released in 1998 and acknowledged as the best Malaysian car ever made.

    The first Proton car to feature their own Malaysian-made engine was the Proton Gen 2. The early 2000s saw a new entrant into the Malaysian car market, Perodua, a brand which quickly stole market dominance in Proton’s native country. Proton did not make its comeback until the second half of the ‘00s when the Proton Persona was launched, a modern offering to replace the popular but dated Proton Wira. The car was well-received, selling almost 10,000 units in the first three months following its release. The second generation Proton Saga and Saga Exora secured the brand’s popularity in Malaysia, the latter consistently reaching the top ten lists for best selling cars in the country.

    In 2012, Proton was acquired by DRB-HICOM, a Malaysian conglomerate. The Proton Preve followed, being the first car from the brand that received a 5-star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program. The accolade was again achieved by the Proton Suprima S, launched in 2013. The same year saw Proton release a car exclusively for Malaysian government officials, the Proton Perdana, based on the Honda Accord. As of 2017, Geely Automobile, which also owns Volvo, has a 51% controlling stake of the brand through Lotus.
