GAC Aion indicated that Indonesia is the largest automobile market in Southeast Asia. At the same time, in launching its Indonesian strategy, GAC Aion chose to cooperate with the local dealer group Indomobil to jointly establish a localized R&D, production, and sales system.

Furthermore, as part of its globalization strategy, GAC Aion has entered the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) markets including Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Cambodia. In the future, it plans to build seven global production and sales bases in Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East as well as deploy into 19 countries and regions around the world.

    • Good question. When Chinese cars land in other countries, apart from the need for local certification of the vehicle quality itself, there are supply chain issues that need to be solved: building local factories for production and assembly or directly importing from overseas. Right now, there is no local production facility yet in Indonesia, so the other option is to import from outside, and this introduces additional costs.
