The Indonesian new car market clearly marks a pause in 2015 with February sales down a worrying 21% year-on-year to just 88,738 registrations, pulling the year-to-date total down 14% to 185,456 units. The Toyota Avanza remains master in command of the sales charts by far with 13.7% share, a notch above its level of the past 6 months. Commercial vehicles are less affected by the market slump and as a result rank higher so far in 2015: the Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap is #2 again with a very strong 6.7% vs. #4 in 2014 and the Suzuki Carry Pikap ranks #4 with 4.8% vs. #6 in 2014.
But the main event in the Indonesian market this month is the supernatural 5th place of the Honda HR-V with a very impressive 3,885 sales and 4.4% share. The is the second launch vastly exceeding industry expectations for Honda, one year after the Mobilio climbed to #2 a couple of months after its introduction here. Further down, notice the Nissan X-Trail up to #14 with 1,669 sales, the Datsun GO+ at #16 with 1,602 units and the Honda CR-V back inside the Top 20 at #17 and 1,399 sales.
