New car sales in Indonesia encouragingly gain ground year-on-year for the second month in a row at +12% to 88.519 units in May. The year-to-date total now stands at 440.466 sales, down just 1% of 5.000 deliveries on the same period last year. One year ago, the perennial market leader – the Toyota Avanza – slumped to its first sub-10.000 sales month in over four years (6.778). Now armed with a new generation, Avanza sales almost double year-on-year (+98%) to 13.451 and 15.2% share vs. 12.7% so far this year. Bonus: its twin the Daihatsu Xenia is also in outstanding shape, up 26% to leap into 2nd place with 5.318 sales and 6% share. It is only the second time in the past 3 years (along with August 2015) that the Avanza and Xenia twins sign a 1-2 in Indonesia. In fact, the Toyota Group monopolises the Top 5 this month with the Toyota Agya at #3, its twin the Daihatsu Ayla at #4 (+103%) and the Toyota Kijang Innova at #5 (+38%). The Honda BR-V remains spot at #6, the Honda HR-V is up 141% to #8, the Toyota Fortuner up 173% to #9 and the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport holding strong at #15.

Finally! For the first time since August 2014, the Indonesian new car market manages to gain ground year-on-year with sales 4% in April to 84.703 units, limiting the year-to-date drop to -4% at 351.947 deliveries. The perennial market leader, the Toyota Avanza, celebrates with a 9% improvement to 15% market share, its best since last October, but is still haemorrhaging 14% year-to-date at 12.1% share. The Toyota Agya shoots back up 21% to 2nd place overall with the 2016 success story the Honda BR-V dropping to #3 and 5.4% share but remaining 2nd year-to-date. The Daihatsu Ayla (+45%), Honda Mobilio (+83%), Daihatsu Xenia (+54%) and Suzuki Ertiga (+27%) all deliver spectacular growth, and the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport holds its spot inside the Top 20.

Honda HR-V Indonesia Mach 2016The BR-V has found its place in the Indonesian market without hurting other Honda models.

Indonesian new car sales are down 5% year-on-year in March to 93.990 registrations, in line with a First Quarter drop of 6% to 267.228 units. Below the Toyota Avanza down 11% despite the arrival of a new generation last year, the Honda BR-V posts a stunning third consecutive month in 2nd place, back up to 6.5% market share thanks to 6.089 deliveries and adding up to 18.291 sales in just three months. But far from cannibalising the rest of the Honda range, the BR-V has sparked it out of lethargy: the HR-V is up 25% to #3 with 6.034 sales and 6.4%, all three figures being new Indonesian records for the nameplate. The Mobilio is also in great shape, up 133% to 5.088 sales and 5.4% share, its largest monthly volume in over a year (since January 2015). Finally, the Toyota Kijang Innova continues to be lifted by its new generation: up 50% to 4th place and 6.1% share and up 44% to #3 YTD while the all-new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport lodges another very solid month at #12 and 2.046 sales.

The Indonesian new car market stabilises in February at 88.236 registrations, down just 0.6% year-on-year and bringing the year-to-date total to 173.121 units, down 7% on the sale period in 2015. The Toyota Avanza continues its worrying freefall at -27% to just 10.1% market share. The main culprit: the all-new Honda BR-V, confirming the 2nd spot it snapped in January for its very first month of sales and adding 5.575 units for a 6.3% share. In the same segment, the Honda Mobilio is up 18% to #7, the Daihatsu Xenia down 4% to #10 and the Suzuki Ertiga up 18% to #12.

Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Indonesia February 2016The all-new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is up to #8 overall in Indonesia this month. 

Below, the Toyota Kijang Innova takes advantage of its new generation with deliveries up 33% to 5.014 while the Daihatsu Ayla (+58%) outsells its twin the Toyota Agya (-10%) for the first time. The new generation Mitsubishi Pajero Sport shoots the nameplate up to a record 8th position overall with 3.115 units sold and 3.5% share. The Datsun GO+ is up 29% to #13, the Honda Brio Satya up 63% to #14 and the Toyota Fortuner up 95% to #16, also boosted by the new model.

After losing 16% over the Full Year 2015, the Indonesian new car market is down a further 10% in January to 84.885 registrations. Exactly two years ago, Honda launched the Mobilio MPV. After starting at #18 in January 2014, it went on to hit a record 10% market share in May of that year and 10.592 sales in March, becoming only the 2nd nameplate in Indonesian history to post five digit-monthly sales after the Toyota Avanza. The Mobilio ended 2014 in 2nd place (79.288 units), but dropped to 4th last year (48.927), having ranked #2 in the monthly Indonesian charts for a total of 9 times over the period – 8 in 2014 but just once in 2015. Priced relatively high, the Mobilio has been perceived as premium by Indonesian consumers.

After hitting the mark once again with the HR-V in 2015 (directly #8), Honda really zeroes in on the decade-long leader the Toyota Avanza with the BR-V, a compact SUV larger but priced below the HR-V and based on a Brio platform like the Mobilio. Considered both as an MPV and an SUV in Indonesia, the BR-V looks tough and capable and with the SUV wave currently engulfing everything on its wake it may just be what consumers need right now. The BR-V lands at a stunning 2nd place with 6.627 sales and 7.8% share just as the Avanza takes another hit with sales down 25% to 9.370 despite a facelift less than 6 months ago.

After benefitting from various facelifts over its 12 year-career, the Toyota Kijang Innova finally gave way to an all-new second generation last November, and is boosted accordingly this month with deliveries up 49% year-on-year to 5.825, enabling the nameplate to rank inside the Indonesian podium for the first time since May 2014. Below, the Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap (-28%), Toyota Agya (-14%) and Suzuki Carry Pikap (-25%) suffer but the Suzuki Ertiga (+22%) and Daihatsu Ayla (+27%) are in great shape as is the Honda HR-V at #9. The Toyota Fortuner, also helped by a new model, re-enters the Top 20 thanks to deliveries ip 12%.

After two consecutive 1.2m unit years, the Indonesian market underwent a harsh correction in 2015: down 16% to just 1.013.305 registrations. Market leader Toyota falls faster than the market but remains head and shoulders above the competition at 31.8% share. Sister brand Daihatsu increases its market presence in Indonesia thanks to sales down ‘just’ 9% to 167,808 and 16.6% vs. 15.3% in 2014. Thanks to the smashing success of the HR-V, by far the best-selling all-new nameplate of 2015 and directly landing at #8 (36.425 sales), Honda cements its third place at 15.7% share vs. 13.2% a year ago, with Suzuki and Mitsubishi both losing share at -21% each. Datsun shines in 6th place with sales up 43% in spite of a two-model lineup (GO and GO+), now outselling parent brand Nissan (-26%).

Model-wise, if last year the Honda Mobilio gave traditional leader the Toyota Avanza a run for its money, in 2015 the Avanza returned to ultra-domination at 13.1% share despite sales down 18% to 133.153 and celebrates a full decade in pole position. The next-best thing is a surprise: the Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap manages to gain 2% to 58.121 units and is up two spots on its 2014 ranking. Despite a growing amount of poor quality reports, the Toyota Agya remains in third place (-15%), outpacing the Honda Mobilio down a devastating 38% and two ranks to #4. The Daihatsu Ayla is up two spots o #7 while the Honda HR-V is an instant blockbuster at #8. The Daihatsu Xenia (-29%) and Suzuki Ertiga (-30%) suffer despite a new model and a facelift respectively.

At 88.601 registrations, the Indonesian new car market seems to finally have bottomed out as this result is only 3% below November 2014 which was down 19% on a year earlier. The year-to-date total still stands at a paltry 923.212 units, down 18% on the same period in 2014. Toyota unsurprisingly leads the brands ranking year-to-date and has just crossed the 300.000 unit-mark at 300.317, holding almost one-third of the overall market. Daihatsu gains 1.5 percentage point of market share compared to its FY2014 score at 16.8% although Honda, gaining over 3 percentage points to 16%, is now breathing on its neck. Suzuki (12%) and Mitsubishi (11.5%) recede slightly.

Model-wise, the Toyota Avanza is the leader once again but the ‘new generation effect’ is already puffing out with a low 14% market share for the nameplate this month. Reversely the Low Cost Green Car Toyota Agya breaks its market share record to a stunning 7.8% thanks to 6.850 sales. The Honda Brio Satya for its part delivers a ranking (#5), volume (3.736) and market share (4.3%) personal bests this month, frankly outselling the Daihatsu Ayla (#8). Note when adding the Brio ‘standard’ variant, Brio sales in Indonesia are just four units short off hitting 5.000 this month. The Toyota Rush (#7) and Yaris (#16) are also strong.

No sign of improvement for the Indonesian new car market, down another 16% year-on-year in October to 88.609 registrations, pulling the year-to-date total to 853.292 deliveries, down 18% on 2014. The Toyota Avanza, with the help of its new generation, continues its one-MPV-show at 15.080 sales and 17.% market share, 3 times the level of the #2, the Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap strong at 4.900 units and 5.5%. The Honda Mobilio is down one spot on September to #3 but maintains itself above its year-to-date level at 5.4% share while the Suzuki Carry Pikap at #4 and 5% share confirms light commercial vehicles are resisting the market recession much better than passenger cars are. At #5, the Toyota Agya is only one percentage point above its twin the Daihatsu Ayla, the Honda Brio Satya and Honda HR-V post very solid results, the Datsun GO+ is back up just outside the Top 10 and the Toyota Hilux continues to climb the Indonesian ladder now that the new generation has spread across the country’s dealerships.

In a depressed market, the launch of the new generation of Indonesia’s best-seller in mid-August is shaking the sales charts up a little. Dubbed by Toyota the Grand New Avanza and Grand New Veloz (for the upscale trim pevioysly known as Avanza Veloz), the new model pushes Avanza nameplate up to 16.344 units in August, its highest monthly result in almost two years, since the 19.013 deliveries of November 2013.
