    Thanks for your punctual response Matt. :D

    I guess you are right. The majority of Proton showrooms are located in Java after all… Nonetheless, your information is much appreciated.

    Brilliant feature article as always, thanks Matt !

    I’m a little curious to know whether you’ve seen any Proton Exora MPVs during your holiday in Bali. The car is supposedly stealing a significant number of sales from the dominant Avanza/ Xenia duo.

      Hi Aero,

      Thank you – glad you like it!
      No I haven’t seen any Proton Exora during my stay… so it may be that the car is more successful in other islands or in Jakarta?
      Best,

    Yeah, Renault is totally absent from Indonesia and it’s start from scratch if Dacia would be introduce there. I think a whole range of Dacia vehicles would be introduce in Indonesia. As Nissan boss said before, they will not introduce commercial version of the Nissan Evalia.

    So, there is high possibility that the Logan small pickup would come in to challenge Gran Max and Carry/Mega Carry dominance. Practically, Nissan is hunger for sales, unfortunately their Juke, March, Evalia have not been big sellers. Don’t be surprise if Duster would come in to slot below the X-Trail. :-) The alliance of 5 brands (Nissan, Renault, Dacia, Datsun, Lada) is going to rock the car market in years to come!

    Superb pictures you got up there Matt! :-) You are right! It’s MPV 3x in Indonesia. Bali has been an increasing market for auto sales since tourism has boasted income tremendously for the locals.

    I think the Lodgy would be launch as a Nissan MPV, possibly replacing Grand Livina. That’s speculation. Other than that, to replace the Livina X-Gear, the Sandero Stepway would come in, not sure 1st or 2nd gen would be used and the engine used. The hatchback Sandero would be a vehicle to come in above the 1.2L Nissan March. :-)

    Regards.

      Thanks Eddy!
      And very interesting angle to launch the Lodgy as a Nissan. It makes a lot of sense given Renault is totally absent from Indonesia. They have done a similar thing in Mexico where they launched the Renault Symbol as the Nissan Platina and the Dacia Logan and the Nissan Aprio, and in South Africa where the Logan pick-up is sold as the Nissan NP200…
      Best,

    HNY Matt! Hope BSCB will become even more THE reference in its automotive segment.

    At to your “On a different note, when is Renault launching the Dacia Lodgy in Indonesia? It should be there already… and the Dokker” remark:

    After Brazil, Russia and India Indonesia will certainly be a priority for Renault / Dacia. Curious when they will enter that market.
