JAKARTA – Cars produced in Indonesia are not only sold domestically. Automotive manufacturers with factories in Indonesia also export their cars to various countries around the world. At least dozens to tens of thousands of Indonesian-made cars sold abroad. Some manufacturers export Indonesian-made cars are CBU. But, there are also those who export in decomposed form and export their components only.

But what is interesting is the export of CBU because it has been produced in the form of a whole car unit. Citing CBU export data released by the Indonesian Association of Automotive Industries (GAIKINDO), cars that are exported abroad vary. They are SUVs, MPVs, and pickups.

In June, Indonesian car exports totaled 25,159 units. While August exports were 23,559 units. January-June exports of cars did not reach 22,000 units per month.
