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] Its electric powertrain is supplemented by a Range Extender Engine from Lotus Engineering; this is a 1.2 liter 3-cylinder single-cam 4 valves per cylinder engine that weighs only 56 kg dry and is optimized for 2 RPM points – 20 hp at 1,500rpm and 47 hp at 3,500rpm. Peak torque is 107Nm at 2,500rpm.

"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. As of September 2013, Proton's website neither lists it as a current model or a concept car.

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