Audi has launched car manufacturing operations in Indonesia. The 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.
Audi is stepping up the pace in Asian markets, and Indonesia is a dynamic growth region.
In total around 2,700 A4 and A6 cars will be built in Jakarta by 2015. At first Indonesian customers will be served by three Audi sites in the country. In the future, the company wants to expand its dealership network and strengthen its position in ASEAN countries.
The Indonesian car market is forecast to grow by 15% this year, while sales in the premium segment are expected to double over the next five years.
