Proton today announced that current X70 owners will be able to upgrade their dust and pollen filter to the newly introduced Proton Intelligent Air Purification System (PIAPS) N95 Cabin Filter for just RM79 excluding labour charges.
Beginning 13th May 2020, owners who are interested in replacing their filters can make service appointments by contacting any Proton service outlet. A service campaign is also scheduled to run from 18 May – 18 August 2020 where a 15% discount on the price of the filter will be offered to all Proton X70 owners.
The announcement is in line with the introduction of the PIAPS system which will be offered as standard on every new unit of the 2020 Proton X70 from now onwards.
The PIAPS system combines the benefits of an N95 Cabin Filter and the Air Purifier System to offer a comprehensive method to improve in-cabin air quality.
The new N95 Cabin Filter is capable of removing 95% of particles larger than 0.3 microns and also removes 98% of PM2.5 dust particulates. It is therefore an effective barrier against smoke particulates, dust, bacteria and other pollutants and functions in both fresh and recirculation modes for the air-conditioning system.
The existing Air Purifier System fitted to all Proton X70s will also remain. It uses a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter that removes 99.97% of particles larger than 0.3 microns while its activated carbon removes odours, formaldehyde and adsorbs and purifies smoke particulates.
Additionally, the ioniser discharges negative ions to cleanse the air. By combining the Air Purifier System with the N95 Cabin Filter, the PROTON Intelligent Air Purification System (P-IAPS) acts as a barrier against contaminated air making its way into the cabin, offering a high level of protection against airborne pollutants for a cleaner and healthier environment.
“Proton is constantly looking at ways to improve our offerings. The introduction of the N95 Cabin Filter is particularly relevant in today’s global environment and by improving the quality of air in the cabin, we hope to deliver a comfortable contaminant-free experience to our customers. For now, P-IAPS will only be offered on the Proton X70 but our designers and engineers are working to fit the N95 cabin filter in our other models too,” said Dr Li Chunrong, CEO of Proton.
