The first half 2012 was closed at 460.000 units, moving Indonesia in the world’s 17th ranking, but the second half of the year will further show increase and position the market in 15th global rank.

Focus2move.com forecast for the full year was at 930.000 units, up 20% from last year, while in the 2013 the 1 million units could be achieved for the first time in the history: wonderful news for Toyota, the market dominator with a share over 39%, and for the others Japanese brands.

Looking at the first half performance by brand, Toyota sold 202.231 vehicles, improving its share at 39.2%, up 3.3 points of share from last year and in spite of the new MPV Ertiga, locally produced, was launched only in April with over 12.000 customers orders in the first month and now is available only with 5 months of waiting time.

Daihatsu was the 2nd with 80.319 sales and a share of 15.6%, down 0.5 points from the full year 2011, followed by Mitsubishi at 73.987, down 2.2 point from the full year 2011.

However, Nissan launched the new version of successful MPV Evalia only in May and hopes to post a strong increase in the second half.

Honda was 6th with 26.018 vehicles and a share of 5.0%, down 0.2 points from last year. Heavily penalized by Thailand flood, Honda started the year very slow, recovering in the second quarter.
