Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Domestic car sales still recorded positive growth until last October 2021. Based on data from the Association of Indonesian Automotive Industries (Gaikindo), car sales were recorded wholesales (distribution from factories to dealers) in October 2021 grew 54.1% yoy compared to October 2020.
When compared to September, car sales this month fell 10.2% month-to-month (mtm). The reason is Avanza’s monthly sales which fell 77.41% mtm, to only 1,701 units in October.
Thus, the Avanza is no longer the champion in domestic car sales.
It is said that the news of the appearance of the All New Avanza has an impact on potential consumers who delay purchases to wait for a new model. This is allegedly causing the national car sales to decline.
The Avanza is indeed the car with the largest contribution, which is 6.82% of national sales. Cars sold from January to October 2021 amounted to 47,972 units.
Meanwhile, the car with the highest sales position last month was the Toyota Rush with sales of 5,312 units.
The two types of New Rush were released with the new GR variant last August, so they are able to attract buyers.
In second and third positions are the Daihatsu Sigra which sold 4,773 units and the Mitsubishi Xpander (including the Xpander Cross) with 4,743 units.
Meanwhile, from the pick up segment, the Daihatsu Gran Max managed to occupy the fourth position of the best-selling car with sales of 4,265 units and the Suzuki Carry Pick Up with 4,188 units sold.
The following is a list of the 10 best-selling cars in October 2021:
- Toyota Rush: 5.312 unit
