Proton X50 subscription now available from RM1,858 per month, receive the car within 7 days

As teased earlier, Flux is now offering the Proton X50 SUV on subscription. This allows you to drive the latest hot compact SUV without forking out a hefty down payment and going through the hassle of applying for a loan. According to Flux, you can receive the X50 within 7 days.

Proton X50 7 days subscription delivery

Flux currently offers the Proton X50 Flagship and Premium models which are the two highest variants available. With the subscription, you can drive one home from RM1,858 per month on a 36-month contract. If you do decide to keep it, there’s also the option to purchase it with its guaranteed future value (GFV) under its Subscribe to Own program.

Proton X50 subscription versus buy

Flux claims that the subscription model will allow you to fork out 30% less money in the first year of car ownership versus a typical hire-purchase option. With the subscription, you’ll only need to pay a one-time (non-refundable) start fee and the monthly subscription amount. The maintenance, road tax, insurance and wear and tear costs are all included in the monthly subscription and it’s charged to your saved credit card.
