However, the higher sales in August was likely supported by the Gaikindo International Auto Show (GIIAS), during which around 21,000 cars were sold. There was no such an event in September.
The low-cost and green cars (LCGC) segment, meanwhile, saw a 13.5 percent yoy increase in sales to 179,768 units from January to September.
The LCGC segment accounted for 22.35 percent of total cars sold in the period, higher than the 20.23 percent share during the same period last year. (ags)
