New vehicle sales in Indonesia are stable in August, up 0.2% year-on-year to 96.461 wholesales, with the year-to-date tally now standing at +3.6% to 715.495. Whereas a year ago the Toyota Avanza historically lost its pole position to the all-new Calya, it has now well and truly reclaimed its throne, even gaining 12% year-on-year to 10.6% share vs. -35% and 6.2% for the Calya. The Toyota Kijang Innova, up 24% to #2 this month, is sandwiched between the two nameplates. The Daihatsu Sigra resists a lot better than its Toyota twin at just -5% in 4th position and also earning the 4th position year-to-date, passing the Honda HR-V and Mobilio. The Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap surges 49% to #6, the facelifted Honda CR-V brilliantly breaks into the Top 10 (it wasn’t in the July Top 20), the Suzuki Carry Pikap is up 93%, the Honda Jazz up 49% and the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport up 39%.

Indonesia H1 2017: Discover the Top 25 brands and Top 140 models (BSCB Exclusive)

The Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap/Minibus ranks third overall in Indonesia so far in 2017. 

* See the Top 25 brands and Top 140 models by clicking on the title *

Today we can share with you exclusive data for Indonesia over the First Half of 2017. The Indonesian market edges up 0.3% year-on-year over the period to 533.903 units. Toyota remains ultra-dominant with a 36.6% market share while sister brand Daihatsu reclaims the #2 spot off Honda at 17.7% share vs. 17.5%. Suzuki (9.7%) overtakes Mitsubishi (6.3%) for the 4th place overall – note Mitsubishi Fuso is counted separately. Notice Datsun at #7, Isuzu at #8 while Chevrolet is the #1 non-Japanese brand and the only one in the To 10 at #10 with a meagre 0.3% market share. Mercedes, Mazda, BMW and Lexus follow.

In the models ranking, the Toyota Avanza (11.7% share) has shaken off the Toyota Calya (7.6%) which threatened its supremacy for a few months last year. Sales of Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap and Minibus are combined, pushing the nameplate to third place overall above the Toyota Kijang Innova while the Honda Brio (including Satya) is by far the best-selling passenger car in the country. The Honda Mobilio leaps back up to #6 ahead of the Honda HR-V with the Daihatsu Sigra rounding up the Top 10.

The twins Daihatsu Ayla and Toyota Agya both suffer significant loss and step out of the Indonesian Top 10 (they ranked #9 and #5 respectively in FY2016). Further down, notice the Mitsubishi L-300 Pikap at #15, the Mitsubishi T-120SS Pikap at#23 (the latter two being Indonesian-specific), the Suzuki Ignis at #24 and the Chevrolet Trax at #46. The Lexus RX (#54) is the #1 premium nameplate above the Mercedes C-Class (#56), Mercedes GL (#58) and BMW X1 (#62).

Indonesia June 2017: Market down 27%, Wuling Confero S lands

The Indonesian new car market is down a harsh 27% year-on-year in June to 66.755, yet the year-to-date tally remains in positive territory – just – at +0.3% to 533.903 units. An interesting trivia: according to local publication theinsiderstories.com, monthly car registrations in Indonesia have averaged 54.341 units from 1999 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 115.974 in September 2013 and a record low of 1.898 in January 1999 in the midst of the economic crisis that touched the country at the time.

The Toyota Avanza continues to dominate the ranking despite a larger-than-market 45% drop, remaining below 10% share. This month the rest of the Top 10 is completely reshuffled, with some Daihatsu models selling more than their Toyota twins, a rare feat. For example, the Daihatsu Ayla (-34%) is above the Toyota Agya (-31%) and the Daihatsu Sigra above the Toyota Calya for the first time ever. Notice the Suzuki Ertiga falling slower than the market at -8% and the Honda HR-V up 74% to #9.

But the big news at the moment in Indonesia is the opening of Chinese low-cost MPV-maker Wuling’s local factory in Cikarang, West Java, inaugurated on July 11. One year ago we mentioned that the motivation for Toyota to launch the Calya-Sigra utra-low-cost MPV tandem was to preempt the arrival of Wuling. Low-cost MPVs are what Indonesian customers are most fond of so it makes total sense for Wuling to create the first Indonesian car factory for a Chinese carmaker. It has started selling the Confero S, a rebadged Hongguang S1 – the #1 vehicle in China – and will launch the 730 MPV to compete with the Kijang Innova and 310 hatch to fight the Toyota Agya/Daihatsu Ayla in 2018. We feel that all three models have great potential on the Indonesian market. The factory has an annual capacity of 120.000 units but only 8.000 Confero S are scheduled to be produced in 2017, so we may not see the nameplate crack the monthly Top 20 just yet…

Indonesia May 2017: Toyota Kijang Innova overtakes Calya to #2

The Toyota Kijang Innova is up 23% to #2 overall in Indonesia in May.

* See the Top 10 best-selling models by clicking on the title *

The Indonesian new car market is up 6% year-on-year in May to 94.123 registrations. The Toyota Avanza is once again the best-selling nameplate in the country, doing so despite a harsh 34% year-on-year decline to just 8.865 registrations and 9.4% share, a rare drop below the 10% mark. Reversely, the Toyota Kijang Innova is still enjoying the benefits of its recent facelift to gain 23% and return to the 2nd spot. The victim: the Toyota Calya, which led the Indonesian market for three months in 2016 and whose honeymoon period with local buyers has now ended. The Honda Brio Satya (+259%) continues to stun and leads the passenger car category again this month ahead of the Toyota Agya in 5th place overall (-17%). Notice also the Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap 64% and the Suzuki Ertiga up 41%.

89.588 new cars found a buyer in Indonesia in April, a 5.8% year-on-year improvement. After having its feathers ruffled by the launch of the Calya, a larger but cheaper Low Cost Green Car MPV that ranked #1 in Indonesia between August and October, the Toyota Avanza, the market leader for 11 consecutive years, has now reclaimed a firm grip on the market. In April, it holds a 13.3% share despite a 6% year-on-year drop and sells more than double any other nameplate around, with the #2, the Calya, standing at 6.5% share. The Toyota Kijang Innova is a strong third with deliveries up 16%, distancing the Honda Brio Satya leaping from outside the Top 20 in April 2017 directly into 4th place. With the Brio Satya, Honda manages to outsell both the Toyota Agya and Daihatsu Ayla in the LCGC small car segment. The Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap post a splendid 50% gain, the Honda HR-V is up 35% and the Suzuki Carry Pikap up 25%. Finally, notice the arrival of the Suzuki Ignis inside the Indonesian Top 20 at #14.

Indonesia Full Year 2016: Toyota Avanza leads, Calya lands at #3

The Toyota Avanza signs an 11th consecutive year atop the Indonesian sales charts.

Consult over 40 years worth of Indonesian Historical Data here

The Indonesian new car market has stabilised just above 1 million annual units with 2016 sales up 5% to 1.061.015, a large part due to a couple of successful launches in the Low Cost Green Car segment (LCGC), itself up 42% to 235.180 units. Interestingly, this year the market has concentrated even further on the Top 3 best-selling carmakers which account for a staggering 72.7% share vs. 64.1% a year ago. These are Toyota at 36%, Honda at 18.8% and Daihatsu at 17.9%, and they all gain 19% mainly because they are among the only ones to design and produce vehicles specifically dedicated to the Indonesian market. Like in 2015, Mitsubishi (-20%) and Suzuki (-17%) round up the Top 5 but fall heavily.

The Toyota Kijang Innova is up 27% to #2.The Toyota Calya lands directly at #3 and was best-seller for three months…

If the Toyota Avanza holds onto the pole position for the 11th straight year at 122.654 units (-8%), it wasn’t all smooth sailing. The launch of the Toyota Calya, a larger but cheaper LCGC MPV, ruffled its feathers as the newcomer managed to snap the monthly top spot for three consecutive months between August and October. This was the first time in a decade that the Avanza wasn’t in the monthly Indonesian pole position – that’s 120 consecutive months. Yes the Avanza reclaimed its title in November and December and should be able to continue its reign in 2017. All-in-all, the Calya lands at a very impressive third place over the full year, just below the Toyota Kijang Innova, rejuvenated (+27%) by a new generation and above the 2nd best-seller LCGC in the country for 2016, the Toyota Agya (-21%).

 312 Mitsubishi Delica found a new home in Indonesia in 2016.The Daihatsu Xenia is up 35% to 5th place overall. 

The Daihatsu Xenia – an Avanza twin – gets a second wind in 5th place (+35%) ahead of the best-selling SUV in the country, the Honda HR-V (+22%). Star of 2014, the Honda Mobilio is down 19% and three spots to #7 in 2016 but Honda has its own all-new nameplate landing directly inside the annual Top 10: the BR-V at #9, author of a spectacular landing directly at #2 for its first three months in market (January-March). Daihatsu’s Toyota Calya twin, the Sigra, arrives at #13 and the Toyota Sienta (#19) makes it four all-new nameplates inside the Top 20, illustrating the extreme dynamism of the Indonesian new car market. Notice also the Toyota Fortuner (#14) and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport (#17) dominating the large SUV segment.

New car sales in Indonesia are up 13% year-on-year in November to 100.125 registrations, lifting the year-to-date tally up 6% to 972.972 units. After three consecutive months of reign, the Toyota Calya relinquishes the Indonesian pole position to the leader in this market for the past decade: the Toyota Avanza at 12.453 units vs. 10.118. Perhaps we are not witnessing a change of guard after all. These figures being wholesale figures, they indicate that Toyota dealerships are already reducing the canopy as far as Calya orders are concerned, and the situation could worsen once wholesales stabilise closer to retail sales. The Daihatsu Xenia on the other hand more than double its sales year-on-year at +118% to land in third place overall, ahead of the Toyota Innova (+63% thanks to the new model) and Honda Brio Satya, leading its segment ahead of the Toyota Agya (-51%) and Daihatsu Ayla (-28%). The Honda BR-V reappears inside the Top 10 at #9. Note these rankings exclude LCVs.

New car wholesales in Indonesia continue on their recovery with a 4% year-on-year improvement to 91.846 deliveries, lifting the year-to-date tally up 2.5% to 875.296 units. It’s a third consecutive month in pole position for the all-new Toyota Calya but just as in September when it only won by 20 units, the Calya only has a tiny 80 unit-edge in October over the Toyota Avanza, the Indonesian market leader of the past decade now down 39% year-on-year. Thanks to this performance the Calya is now #9 year-to-date with 30.362 sales. Its twin the Daihatsu Sigra remains at a brilliant third place with 6.9% share, distancing the Honda Brio Satya (+38%), Toyota Kijang Innova (+129%) and Daihatsu Xenia (+100%). The rest of the Top 10 is in decline.

The Indonesian new car market is up by a very shy 0.1% year-on-year in September to 93.136 registrations, yet the year-to-date tally is up 2.5% to 783.450 units, keeping the hopes of ending 2016 above 1 million units alive. After ending the decade-long reign of the Toyota Avanza last month, we were expecting the Toyota Calya to sail off into the sunset and never look back. Not so. Granted, the Calya posts a 2nd consecutive month in the Indonesian pole position but at 8.832 sales it is only 20 units above the Avanza (-46%). The tremendous initial success of the Calya may be the culprit here with assembly lines struggling to keep up with demand.

The next few months will tell us whether we are headed towards a clear Calya leadership or a tight battle for domination between the two nameplates. The Daihatsu Sigra for its part climbs onto the overall podium for the first time at #3 with 5.721 units, distancing the Toyota Kijang Innova (+39%) and Honda Brio Satya (+45%) both delivering spectacular year-on-year gains. The Toyota Sienta remains strong at #6, the Daihatsu Xenia resists at +13% and reclaims the #5 YTD spot off the Daihatsu Ayla, the Toyota Fortuner is robust at #11 and the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is back inside the Top 20 at #19.
