Indonesian car sales dropped 10.8% during 2019 amid the weak demands and other factors. The car manufacturer association (Gaikindo) reported, the producer only sold 1.03 million units from a year ago 1.15 million cars.

In December only, the manufacturer sold 86,582 cars, lowered compared to November 90,798 units and from a year ago 87,846 vehicles. The market leader was still controlled by Toyota, which was able to record sales of 333,222 units, followed by Daihatsu 177,284 units, and Mitsubishi at the third position by posting 161,765 units of sales.

Earlier, Gaikindo has predicted the car sales will not be achieved cause low demand, tight competition, and influx of new players and variants from abroad, such as Wuling, Mitsubishi Xpander, and Nissan.
