Humberside Police are so impressed by the Proton GEN-2 that the force has just ordered 20 GEN-2 GSX models from their local dealer, Maple Garage, Hull.
These are not the first Protons to be bought by Humberside Police. This latest vote of confidence comes after years of using Protons for police work.
Following a recent test drive, Alan Hocking from Humberside Police commented: "Having had excellent results from our current and past Protons it was a natural progression to evaluate the GEN-2. We have an operational area in which the GEN-2 will be a very suitable vehicle and we look forward to continuing our partnership with Proton and their local dealer, Maple Garage, in the future."
David Smith from Maple Garage was delighted with the order. "Maple Garage is pleased to continue our association with the Humberside Police with the new GEN-2, which we will supply and convert to run on LPG for Humberside Police."
As well as having Proton’s proven reliability, the GEN-2 is a budget-conscious choice, with prices ranging from just £6,995 for the new 1.3 limited edition to £10,595 for the top of the range 1.6 GSX. Every model has high levels of specification, including air conditioning, power steering, twin airbags and Blaupunkt radio/ CD - meaning Humberside Police get more for their money. Lotus ride and handling across the range means the GEN-2 is a responsive drive as well as having a comfortable ride, making it an ideal car for the force.Published 9 April 2005
