Toyota unveiled its small car Agya along with Daihatsu’s Ayla at the Indonesia motor show yesterday.
The twin small cars are tailor made to comply with the Indonesian governments ‘Low Cost Green Car’ (LCGC) policy.
For the uninitiated, Daihatsu is a Toyota-owned, low-cost brand which specializes in small cars. The Toyota Agya and Daihatsu Ayla are essentially the same cars slight visual difference. The duo is engineered by Astra Daihatsu in Indonesia and will be locally made at its west Java plant whose construction is nearing the finishing stage.
Indonesian government is yet to decide the incentives for the cars complying with LCGC policy and Astra-Toyota-Daihatsu has planned to fix the production rate of both the cars accordingly.
