KUALA LUMPUR: National carmaker Proton is considering fitting its Waja, Saga and Persona models with NGV (Natural Gas for Vehicles) kits by year-end.

Sources said that the kits would be competitively priced as Proton had ample sales volume.

“The Waja and Saga models fitted with NGV kits will be offered first to taxi drivers.

“There are also plans to offer the kits to earlier Proton models,” said the sources.
