Toyota Will Produce Innova Zenix This Way, Export to 40 Countries

DAPURPACU – Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia (TMMIN) officially started production of its first hybrid vehicle in Indonesia, the Kijang Innova Zenix, at the Karawang factory, West Java.

The seventh generation of the multi-purpose family vehicle, aka the Multi Purpose Vehicle (MPV), has now been embedded with the 5th generation Toyota Hybrid System technology, although conventional engines (Gasoline) are still available.

Chief Executive Officer of Asia Region for TMC and President of TMAP, Hao Quoc Tien said, Innova Zenix involved at least 100 spare parts vendors in Indonesia.

“Toyota is building a full Kijang Innova Zenix production facility in Indonesia, including the production of batteries for its hybrid technology,” said Hao, during the launch at Karawang Plant 1, Monday (21/11).

The Toyota factory at Karawang Plant 1 started production of the Kijang Innova Zenix with a target of 8,500 units per year.

Hao added, new history has also succeeded in creating the first hybrid model ‘cultivated’ by this nation’s children, which will reach customers in 13 countries in Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.

Overall, the latest generation of Kijang Innova is planned to be exported to more than 40 countries, starting from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East, with a planned production of 8,500 units/year in its first year.

The battery is also produced in facilities owned by Toyota in Indonesia. In the future, many more hybrid vehicles will be presented for the domestic and global markets.

Warih Andang Tjahjono, President Director of PT TMMIN, acknowledged that the production of the Kijang Innova Zenix is ​​Toyota’s effort to continue to contribute to the development of the Indonesian automotive industry.

For this reason, continued Warih, his party appreciates the support of the Government of Indonesia in developing the national automotive industry, including the people who have trusted Kijang for 7 generations.

“Of course, we continue to strive to develop and improve Kijang’s performance, to be able to answer increasingly diverse customer needs, especially when entering the challenges of the electrification era,” said Warih.

According to the Coordinating Minister for the Economy, Airlangga Hartarto, based on PP No. 74 of 2021 related to procurement (electric vehicles), the government will encourage those made domestically.

“Because the government’s target is emission reduction. With hybrid technology as an example, the emission reduction is already 30% compared to the combustion engine,” he explained, during the launch of the Innova Zenix.

“If only the combustion engine, fuel consumption reached 12 km/liter, with the addition of hybrid technology it could be 21 km/liter, of course the emissions would be much lower,” said Airlangga. [dp/MTH]
