New vehicle sales in Indonesia are expected to approach 1.1m units in 2012 – which would represent a 23% increase on the previous year’s 893,164 units.

Sales in November rose by over 53% to 103,699 units, compared with depressed year-earlier sales of 67,656 units when the market was affected by a shortage of supply from flood-ravaged Thailand.

The latest data brings the 11-month cumulative total for 2012 to 1,026,758 units, up 26% compared with 813,855 units a year earlier, according to industry association Gaikindo.
