When someone says about German cars, many good things come to my mind. Strength, reliability, quality, speed, endurance,…..many more good things. All German brands have those, you name it…Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Porsche, VW, Opel, and Audi. (is there any more?).

Well, VW had previously confirmed that they’ll setup a plant in Indonesia. Now, Audi.

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.

Audi is stepping up the pace in Asian markets. As one of the most important countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Indonesia is one of Asia’s most dynamic growth regions.

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, where Audi 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.
