Jakarta (4/9) – Having been growing up together with the Indonesian people for the past 50 years, Toyota, which has always met the needs of the community from the past until now, is transforming itself from a traditional car company into a mobility company. As a mobility company, Toyota is committed to delivering not only ever better products, but also total mobility solutions that are innovative and provide added value, in line with the trends and needs of an increasingly complex society.

Toyota Indonesia is determined to always make a socio-economic contribution to the Indonesian nation through the development of the automotive industry. Starting off as an importer in 1971, in the next 50 years Toyota Indonesia is growing with local suppliers to deepen the industry by increasing local content in order to create additional jobs to encourage economic growth in Indonesia. The complete cars assembly of Toyota Indonesia began in 1976, followed by the production of engines in 1982 and several export parts and spare parts. Now Toyota Indonesia is supported by 5 factories that produce 6 Toyota models, 2 types of gasoline engines, components, spare parts and production aids aimed at meeting the needs of Indonesian consumers and global consumers in 80 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Middle East.
"For Toyota, Indonesia is a" second home country "and has a very important role. Toyota Indonesia has become one of the premier production and export bases for Toyota vehicles. Of course, we cannot achieve this position without the assistance of the Indonesian Government which always provides support and convenience in industrial development, including in export activities. We want to make a more real contribution to the nation and people of Indonesia for the next 50 years and beyond, in any situation through cooperation with various parties and continue to establish harmonious relationships with the Government and all other stakeholders to realize 'Mobility happiness for all'. We also continue to develop local supply chains including small and medium enterprises for components and materials, particularly to face the future challenges," said President Director of PT. Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia (TMMIN), Warih Andang Tjahjono.
Toyota products have been used by Indonesians since 50 years ago. Over time, many things have changed during Toyota's 50 year journey in Indonesia. For example, in the past, the majority of Indonesians needed a vehicle as a means of transportation to support mobility, whether done in short or long distances such as homecoming, or in terrain that was quite difficult to pass. And in the past, when people wanted to have a car, they had to buy, either new or second, with the option of cash or credit payment methods.
Now, people's mobility needs have grown to be more diversed. Many Indonesians need easier, safer and more convenient mobility support services, including digital ones. For example, in this pandemic era, people need contactless experience to explore the features of Toyota products and easiness to buy a car. Therefore, Toyota presents a digital platform for product exploration through the Toyota Live Showroom and a digital car purchase program through the Toyota Virtual Expo.
Society needs has and will continue to evolve, where many of them need ease of mobility without having to own a car that can be accessed with one click. Seeing this need, Toyota presents KINTO One which provides new hassle-free options with added value for people who want to use a car without having to think about the maintenance and other costs, through a subscription system that can be easily accessed digitally.
"Our commitment to support the mobility of the Indonesian people for 50 years begins with the cooperation between Toyota and Astra as well as the support of other partners, government and society, to provide the best service for customers and contribute to the country. In the future, we are committed to be able to continue to provide mobility solutions not only to customers, but also to all society, through the products and services that we will provide. This includes presenting a complete electrification option so that people can choose based on their needs as well as a commitment to continue to popularize this electrification technology to the wider society, "said Vice President Director of PT Toyota Astra Motor (TAM), Henry Tanoto.
In facing the future of electrification and the mobility business, Toyota Indonesia will also continue to develop local supply chains for components and materials. The involvement of Small Medium Enterprise in the supply chain is also increasingly important and needs to get greater support. Especially since Toyota Indonesia is currently preparing the local production of the Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) model in 2022 for both domestic and export markets.
Toyota Popularize Electrification Technology
Since transforming itself into a mobility company, Toyota is committed to providing comprehensive mobility solutions, including those related to electrification technology. As a realization of this commitment, on this 50th anniversary, Toyota is presenting integrated ecotourism with Toyota electrification products through the EV Smart Mobility project in Bali.
In this Smart Mobility EV project, Toyota has prepared 3 line-ups of Toyota electrified vehicles, both using Battery EV (BEV) and Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) technology. In total, there are 30 units of Toyota electrified vehicles that can be used by the user, consisting of 20 units of Toyota COMS (BEV), 5 units of Toyota C+pod, and 5 units of Toyota Prius PHEV.
The EV Smart Mobility project is expected not only to provide opportunities for the wider soceity to experience the pleasant sensation of driving using Toyota's electrified products, but also to participate in the recovery process of the tourism industry and environmental preservation in Bali, as well as to popularize electrification to the wider soceity.
In addition, for Toyota, the key to developing the automotive industry is qualified Human Resources. In line with the philosophy of "Make People Before Make Product," Toyota Indonesia has built various learning facilities such as a Learning Center to increase competence, formed a national-level certification body in collaboration with BNSP (National Institution of Profession Certification), and presented the Toyota Indonesia Academy (TIA), namely vocational schools that produce competitive human resources in responding to the challenges of the latest technological developments. Toyota also helps introduce the industrial world to schools and universities through curriculum development, laboratories and vocational programs in order to introduce new technology to prepare competencies so that they are ready to face future challenges for better and more advanced Indonesia.
One of the efforts to support human resources development in this era of electrification is the introduction of the xEV Center as the First Electrification Technology Learning Center in Indonesia. Through the xEV Center, it is hoped that awareness of the electrification industry in Indonesian society can be formed, especially for academics and students. The xEV Center is equipped with virtual tour facilities so that it can be easily accessed by the public, government, students, vocational school students, and soceity throughout Indonesia.
