AUGUST 16, 2016

Jakarta. Automobile sales in Indonesia rose 12.5 percent in July from a year earlier, according to data released on Tuesday (16/08) by industry association Gaikindo.

The annual increase in June was 11.4 percent. On a monthly basis, sales were down 32 percent at 62,585 units. The association did not provide a reason, but Indonesia's one-week long holiday for Eid al-Fitr celebration in July would have affected sales.

Toyota Motor, Daihatsu Motor, and Honda Motor are among the market leaders in Indonesia.
