 Toyota Agya best-selling low-cost green car: Association

The Toyota Agya has been named best-selling low-cost green car in Indonesia by a local automotive manufacturers association.

Based on a report by the Association of Indonesian Automotive Manufacturers (Gaikindo), Toyota sold 57,646 Agya in 2015. The second most popular car in the category, the Daihatsu Ayla, recorded a sales figure of 35,084.

Released on Sept. 19, 2012, the two were jointly developed by the country's largest automotive firms, Toyota Astra Motor and Astra Daihatsu Motor. The companies had previously initiated the production of the Toyota Avanza and Daihatsu Xenia in 2003, which also became Indonesia’s top-selling cars.

Low-cost green cars (LCGC) have become the second-best selling category after low multi-purpose vehicles (LMPV) for Indonesian consumers with total sales figures reaching 165,434 last year, reported on Thursday.

The vehicles categorized as LCGCs are those with engines smaller than 1,200 cc, as well as diesel and semi-diesel cars below 1,500 cc that can run at least 20 kilometers per liter of fuel.

It is predicted the cars will drive domestic sales volumes in the future as their price tags of about Rp 100 million (US$7,200) are considered affordable for those in Indonesia’s emerging middle class, which makes up more than half of its population of 240 million.

Previously, Gaikindo chairman Sudirman M. Rusdi said Indonesia’s car sales declined by 13.7 percent in 2015 compared to the year before, when they totaled 1.2 million. (kes)(+)

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
