Suzuki invests $611m in Indonesia car plant

suzuki-ertiga-photo-whiteA few days after Toyota announced that it will spend $240 million for a new engine plant in Java, Indonesia, its Japanese cpmpetitor Suzuki said that it has readied $611 to build a new passenger car plant in the country in another march of Japanese industrial investors into ASEAN.

Suzuki, Japan’s fourth biggest car maker by sales volume, is set to manufacture small cars in Indonesia based on its fuel-efficient 660 cc mini car Wagon R. In Indonesia, Suzuki would be exchanging the 660 cc engine with a bigger one.

Indonesia, the world’s 4th most populous country, saw sales of over 1 million cars in 2012. Suzuki is among Japanese car makers including Toyota and Honda that are considering utilising their Japan-only mini car technology to build a presence in emerging markets with a fast-growing middle class, like Indonesia, whose government is now promoting smaller cars in an environmental initiative.

In 2013, Indonesia’s car market was up 12 per cent year-on-year after 6 months to 601,952 registrations and well on track for another record year. The best-selling car is the Toyota Avanza with a market share of about 17 per cent, followed by the Daihatsu Xenia and the Toyota Innova. The Suzuki Ertiga comes on place 4.
