The 18th Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) in Jakarta ended recently with the ten-day event playing host to 270,000 odd visitors and generating 2 trillion rupiah in sales.

Half of the sales went to industry giant Toyota, with almost 4,600 PT Toyota Astra Motor (TAM) vehicles ordered, an increase of 2500 on last year.

The rough breakdown for Toyota units sold:

  • Avanza - 2000
  • Innova - 1000
  • Yaris - 500
  • Fortuner - 300
  • Rush - 300
  • Vios - 150
  • Corolla Altis - 60
  • Camry - 60
  • Hilux - 30
  • Alphard - 10

At the upper end of the market PT BMW Indonesia managed to offload 111 vehicles, generating 78 billion rupiah, broken down: 64 units of Seri-3; 27 units of X1; 20 units of Seri-5.

A spokesman for the Association of Indonesian Automotive Industries (Gaikindo) said car sales in Indonesia generally had gone up around 75% to 375,000 in the first half of 2010 compared to 2009, with total sales well on target to break the 600,000 record in 2008, after a 20% slump last year. theindonesiatoday.com

Meanwhile and fittingly, the winner of the Miss Motor Show (MMS) 2010 competition came from the "Toyota Pretty" team, SPG (Sales Promotion Girl) Eviliana. antara Congratulations to Eviliana, who takes home the modest sum of 2.5 million rupiah for her win plus some product prizes from LT Pro.

    2.5 million? Thats it? Seems a little pelit considering that the event generated 2 trillion in sales. Disparities here are always amazing.

    Google says the import duties for cars amounts up to 300% of the car value. Imported cars(almost every autovehicle is imported afaik) in indonesia are 2-2.5x as expensive as say singapore or the states, so most of those numbers goes into the nation’s pockets.

    I like car shows, but it’s rather sad that one needs girls to pose as accessories to promote some dubious lifestyle image. Do they even know anythings about the cars they’re hawking?

    The last car show I visited in Jakarta was an antique car exhibition — I had great fun, and the range and good condition of cars on display was beyond my expectation. But I had to work rather hard to find angles for my photographs that *exclude* the models!

    Perhaps cars targeted at females should be attended to by hot male models dressed as mechanics 😛

    Some great contribution for the country, proudly presented for you who enjoy “macet, gila!”. No wonder Jakarta is predicted to come to total gridlock in 2014 (or perhaps sooner).

    What about the almighty Kijang? Is that no longer available or just out of fashion? 😉

    Indonesia doesn’t really need any more cars anyway.

    I think the Innova replaced the Kijang … I may be wrong, but it was called the Kijang Innova.

    Regarding girls and cars … I reckon there would be no real point going to a Jakarta car show without the girls … they are certainly more interesting than the cr*p Toyota unloads into the Indonesian market … one example of this is the reduced safety features compared with those sold in most parts on the world by the same manufacturer … airbags, rear disc brakes, ABS, side intrusion bars etc etc.

    Anyway MMS 2010 looks as cute as a button 😉

    I did like the recent case (sorry lost the link) where there was a world wide recall on a particular toyota model for early clutch failure and the local response was “Its not necessary in Indonesia becuase we drive differently” 🙂

    The difference is, in most part of Indonesian traffic, all kind of vehicles are on the same lane, whether they are cars, buses, motorcycles, bicycles, in some areas you also have delmans and becaks. Even worse, pedestrians have a privilege to cross the street wherever they want to. This means people need more skill to control the speed and move the gear stick at unpredictable moments. So, really, properly functioned clutch and brake are not necessary for Indonesian drivers if they want to get Darwin Awards 😀
