Indonesia is the second market that Ertiga has been launched into and Maruti is expected India-like response from Indonesia as well as people movers are in craze in there. As per reports, close to 60 percent of the total cars sold in Indonesia are MPVs. Alike India, Maruti lacked any strong offering in the MPV segment in Indonesia and thus filling this vacuum, it expects to sell around 50,000 Ertiga’s in the first year. In India, Maruti initially expected Ertiga sales to go over 5000 units per month but the strong craze for this car seem to have forced Maruti to redraw the expected sales chart.
