Proton Emas is a range of concept cars designed by Italdesign Giugiaro and developed by Proton. It debuted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show as a hybrid vehicle.[1]

"Emas" is an acronym for Eco Mobility Advance Solution. The word "emas" means "gold" in Malay.

Proton Emas was planned to be Malaysia's and Proton's first global car and was expected to be in production by 2012 but As of August 2014 the concept car has not reached production.

Proton's subsidiary Lotus Cars has shown a plug-in hybrid city concept car based on the EMAS named the Lotus Ethos.[2][3]

Peak torque is 107Nm at 2,500rpm. The batteries are 100 X 31 Ahr Cells, 370 volts.

The Emas can accelerate to 60 mph in 14 seconds and a maximum speed of 105 mph. Its full range is 350 miles and CO
