PLUS RFID

PLUS RFID opens for public pilot in Penang and Kedah on December 15 – uses credit and debit cards

www.paradisecras.my

It appears that Touch ‘n Go isn’t the only one in the RFID toll payment game, as PLUS has announced that it too is introducing such a system. The highway concessionaire will be opening a public pilot on December 15 at limited locations in Penang and Kedah.

The PLUS RFID system differs from the Touch ‘n Go’s in terms of the method of payment. While the latter uses the Touch ‘n Go eWallet that needs to be topped up, PLUS’ product is tied to the user’s debit or credit card (including American Express charge cards), and debits the toll charge straight from their account.

At the moment, the pilot will be conducted at four locations – the Penang Bridge toll plaza, the Kubang Semang and Lunas toll plazas on the Butterworth-Kulim Expressway (BKE) and the Jitra toll plaza in Kedah. Users will be able to go through the same RFID lanes as Touch ‘n Go RFID users at these tolls, and PLUS has also confirmed that the Penang Bridge RFID lane will be exclusive to PLUS users for the time being.

The fitment centres are located at the Penang Bridge tolls and the PLUS Section N3 office in Kubang Semang. The company said that it will prioritise the use of windscreen stickers, as it believes this is the optimum location for the RFID system; headlight stickers will only be used as an alternative in case the former is unusable. The installation is said to take 15 minutes and is free of charge for pilot users.

Proton Saga – Next gen

www.paradisecars.my

With Proton soon debuting its first model developed in partnership with Geely – an SUV based on the Boyue – our attention to other fruits that will undoubtedly come from the pair’s labour. Looking at the current lineup, a replacement for the Saga might be next up – sure, the budget sedan was only launched in 2016, but it’s based on a platform that has been around in one form or another since 2005.

Our resident Photoshop wizard Theophilus Chin has rendered his idea of what a next-generation Saga will look like, and as you can see, his vision of the car has turned from a small, cheap sedan into a more sophisticated B-segment offering, more in line with what the Persona is like now. It certainly looks larger and appears to have a design that prioritises interior space, similar to the current Honda City and Toyota Vios.

Although it isn’t actually based on a current Geely model, it does borrow styling cues from the larger Emgrand GL, such as the sweptback headlights, pronounced front fender bulge, slim wraparound tail lights and dual exhaust exits. We know that future Proton models will be influenced by Geely’s designs, although they will retain a little bit of Malaysian flavour, and the car’s “winged grille” is a reminder of Proton’s past.

www.paradisecars.my

What about the bits underneath? Well, Geely has already dropped hints that Proton will utilise the Chinese carmaker’s B-segment Modular Architecture (BMA), saying that it will be used by Geely’s foreign brands and that it will be built in Southeast Asia. It is designed to accommodate all the latest active safety technologies, future Level 2 and Level 3 autonomous driving and Geely’s latest petrol engines.

These include a 1.0 and 1.5 litre turbocharged and direct-injected three-cylinder engines as well as a 1.4 litre turbo four-pot, plus mild hybrid, parallel hybrid and plug-in hybrid technologies. So, what do you think of Theo’s latest work?
