While Indonesia has a well developed MPV and SUV manufacturing industry, the nation’s sedan industry is underdeveloped. This is a true missed opportunity in terms of export performance because about 80 percent of the world’s drivers use a sedan vehicle. The key reason why Indonesia has not developed a sedan industry is because the government’s tax system does not encourage the production and export of the sedan vehicle. The luxury goods tax on the sedan is 30 percent, while the tax on the MPV is set at 10 percent.

For example, city car sales in Indonesia have plunged dramatically since the launch of the LCGC. Also the multipurpose vehicle , which – by far – is the most popular vehicle in Indonesia, felt the impact of the arrival of the LCGC. But the MPV’s dominant role in the nation’s automotive sector will persist. The MPV is known as “the people carrier” because this vehicle is bigger and taller than other cars . Indonesians enjoy taking trips with the family (and/or invite some friends) and therefore a big car is required.
