Indonesia May 2019: Wuling (+16.4%), Toyota Rush (+122.8%) hit highest rankings in market down -16.3%

The Baojun 530 is sold as the Wuling Almaz in Indonesia.

No sign of improvement for the Indonesian new car market with May wholesales diving down -16.3% to 84.146 units, leading to a year-to-date volume down -14.7% to 422.038. Once again brand leader Toyota (+0.6%) manages to edge into positive territory to tighten its grip of the Indonesian sales charts at 34.6% shares vs. just 16.8% for sister brand Daihatsu (-20%) in 2nd place. Below, Honda (-22.9%), Mitsubishi (-28.2%), Suzuki (-390.1%) and Fuso (-38.5%) all fall faster than the market. In contrast, Chinese local producer Wuling (+16.4%) leaps up to an all-time high 7th place with 2.3% share, a ranking it also hit in June 2018. Nissan (+389.4%) continues to enjoy the benefits of the new generation Livina, a rebadged Mitsubishi Xpander.

Retail results show almost the same ranking, with Wuling also advancing to #7 less than 400 units below Fuso, but Hino taking the 8th spot above Isuzu. Over in the models ranking, the Toyota Avanza (+13.6%) and Rush (+122.8%) go completely against the negative trend to top the charts, the Rush hitting its highest ever ranking in Indonesia, also reached in July 2018. The Daihatsu Gran Max Pikap (+63%), Suzuki Carry Pikap (+56.1%), Toyota Fortuner (+53.8%), Honda Brio (+13.5%) and Daihatsu Sigra also shine in the remainder of the Top 20.
