After plunging 11.4% in June, new vehicle wholesales in Indonesia rally back up 26.2% in July to 107.431 units, lifting the year-to-date tally up 6.8% to 661.188. Toyota posts a strong month at 32.6% share vs. 29.7% so far in 2018, Daihatsu climbs back up three spots on June to #2, distancing Honda, Mitsubishi and Suzuki. The inclusion of Mitsubishi Fuso (#6) in the brands ranking knocks Hino down to #7 and Wuling down to #9 while Isuzu remains at #8 and Datsun rounds up the Top 10. Over in the models ranking, we have another rollercoaster of surprises: the Mitsubishi Xpander is back to pole position for the 5th time in the past 6 months after relinquishing its throne to long-term Indonesian leader the Toyota Avanza last month. But the big event comes in 2nd place: the new generation boosts the Toyota Rush up 5-fold on July 2017, hitting a new volume record at 7.365 (previous best 5.027 last March) and a new ranking high since BSCB started following Indonesian monthly back in 2012 (previous best #5 in April 2015 and March 2017). The Avanza is therefore relegated to a very unusual 3rd place, and this for the 2nd time in the past 3 months. Toyota monopolises the rest of the Top 5 with the Calya (+9%) and Kijang Innova (-12%) with the Honda Mobilio (+358%), Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap (+35%), Suzuki Carry Pikap (+26%) and Honda Brio Satya (+22%) also making themselves noticed in the Top 10. The Toyota Rush’s twin, the Daihatsu Terios, is up 8 ranks on last month to #11, its highest ranking since December 2013 (#10).
