Audi has launched car manufacturing operations in Indonesia. The German premium carmaker is working with INDOMOBIL/Garuda Mataram Motor to assemble Audi A4 1.8 TFSI and A6 2.0 TFSI cars in the capital city Jakarta.
Around 2, 700 cars will be assembled there by 2015, including 2,000 Audi A4 models, for the Indonesian market. The first A4 and A6 models were delivered to Indonesian customers in January 2011.
Initially, Indonesian customers will be served by three Audi sales/distribution sites in the country but in the future, the OEM wants to expand its dealership network and strengthen its position in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region, where the company claims it is considered the fastest-growing premium brand.
The Indonesian car market is forecast to grow by 15 percent this year, while sales in the premium segment are expected to double over the next five years.
