The Indonesian new light vehicle market is down 3.9% year-on-year in November to 96.191 registrations, yet the year-to-date volume remains in positive territory at +2.1% to 993.683 units. Toyota remains the most popular carmaker in the country but drops to 29.9%, followed by Daihatsu at 17% and Honda at 16.4%. The Toyota Avanza cements its market domination, despite a 19% year-on-year drop leading to a weak 10.5% market share compared to the 11% it commands year-to-date. The Avanza is followed like in October by the Toyota Kijang Innova (+41%) and Toyota Calya (-46%) but the main event of the month is below. For its second month in market, the Mitsubishi Xpander soars 9 spots and 108% on its inaugural score to a stunning 4th place and 5.1% share, This is by far the highest score by any Mitsubishi nameplate since BSCB started following Indonesia monthly in January 2012, with the best performance in recent years posted by the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport in February 2016 at #8.
The Honda Brio Satya (+23%) and Suzuki Ertiga (+33%) also shine, and there is a second momentous event in the Indonesian Top 20: the arrival of the Wuling Confero at #20 with 0.8% share, following its introduction in market as a local assembly last June. Under this nameplate hides none other than the ultra-successful Wuling Hongguang, the best-selling vehicle in China for the past four consecutive years (but in danger of losing its throne in 2017). This is the first time a Wuling nameplate breaks into the Top 20 of any nation outside of China, but also the first time a Chinese nameplate breaks into the Indonesian Top 20.
