Jakarta. Car sales in Indonesia were 14.9 percent higher in November than a year earlier, preliminary data released by the automotive industry association showed on Thursday (15/12).

An association official said the figure would be revised higher as two carmakers, Chevrolet and Mercedes Benz, have not reported their sales for last month.

Normally, they make minor contribution to total sales. Automakers sold 99,900 units of cars last month, the data showed.

On a monthly basis, car sales rose by 8.6 percent from October. Toyota Motor continued to lead the local car market, followed by Daihatsu Motor and Honda Motor.
