The Ertiga is exported as CKD (Completely-Knocked Down unit) from India to the South East Asian market.
Maruti Suzuki’s first shot at the MPV market, the Ertiga, has become quite popular in Indonesia. The online media in the South East Asian countries confirm that Suzuki has received over 12,000 bookings for the Ertiga within weeks of its launch.
The carmaker is currently exporting Completely-Knocked Down units of the petrol-powered Ertiga to Indonesia where it is assembled and then sold for 143 million IDR - Indonesian Rupiah (around Rs 8.50 Lakh) for the base-spec GA version. The GL and GX versions cost 153 million IDR and 165 million IDR respectively which is roughly around Rs 9 Lakh and Rs 9.8 Lakh in Indian Rupees. The booking amount at present is about 5 million IDR which translates to around Rs 30,000.
According to OkeZone’s report, of all the three versions available, most of the buyers opt for the high-end GX version. The GL is the next preferred choice with the base-spec GA version being the least favoured amongst the customers.
The petrol vehicles have lost their charm in India and same is the case with Maruti’s new “LUV”. It is hence possible that the Indonesian market may get priority for the petrol variants over the local market.
