Get to know Chinese brands BYD, Foday, and Russian Lada, and GAZ

If there is no obstacle, in a few years, the Indonesian automotive market will come with a new brand. Reportedly the new brand came from China and Russia. Based on the information circulating, they are BYD, Foday (China), Pepper, and Gaz (Gorkovsky Avtomobilny Zavod) from Russia.

"As far as I know, for this year there have not been any (new automakers) coming in. Next year there is still potential. There are indications that the Chinese and Russian brands are trying to enter," said General Chairman of the Indonesian Motor Vehicles Industry Association (Gaikindo) Yohannes Nangoi at the time the closing ceremony of the 2018 GIIAS exhibition at ICE BSD, Tangerang, a few weeks ago.

It is not certain who will be strong in entering the Southeast Asian market, it's good to know the automotive producers.

BYD Auto Corporation is an automotive company that has been established since 2002 in Xi'an, Shaanxi, China. Initially, they were a company of cars, buses, electric bicycles, trucks, and rechargeable batteries.

With courage to be different from other car manufacturers, BYD made a plug-in hybrid vehicle which went on sale in 2008, BYD F3DM. Not very popular initially, but many people including Warren Buffett, one of the world billionaires saw that BYD's car was a vehicle of the future.

With the investment disbursed by Buffett, BYD began to produce massive electric cars. A year later, (2009), they were able to sell 448,400 cars in China. Starting from there BYD is consistent to present low-emission vehicles to date to become one of the 10 best-selling plug-in cars in the world.

Now, its flagship car is BYD Tang, a 5-passenger hybrid plug-in hybrid crossover SUV.

Next is Foday. The Chinese manufacturer, whose full name is Guangdong Foday Automobile Co., is actually not foreign enough. Because, some time ago his name had come out when President Joko Widodo introduced domestic assembled cars, Esemka Rajawali.

Yes, the car uses one of Foday's SUVs which are then reassembled again. The car is a Foday Explorer. In his home country, Foday has a more powerful car that is even fiercer, called Foday Landfort.

3. Lada

Shifting to Russia, the brand that is called to enter Indonesia later is Lada. Full name AvtoVAZ, the brand that has existed since 1970 is currently majority owned by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance (51 percent).

Initially, AvtoVAZ was made from the collaboration of Fiat and Soviet Vneshtorg (department of foreign trade) in 1966. The cars that came out of the kitchen located in Tolyatti, Russia were compact and sedan types.

But the AvtoVAZ trip as one of the famous brands in Russia doesn't always run smoothly. After being thrown to several parties until they were hit by problems due to the high cost of assembling cars in the economic crisis of 1988, AvtoVAZ began to show its fangs when joining General Motors.
There are only a few successful models, namely Lada Kalina, Lada Riva, Lada Granta and Lada Largus.

4. GAZ

Finally there is Gorkovsky Avtomobilny Zavod or GAZ. The brand emerged in 1929 over the Union Soviet agreement with Ford Motor Company to build domestic cars by persuading Ford to build a factory in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.

But the brand cannot breathe long after the Second World War and the economic crisis. But the passenger car assembly facility is still running and used by Volkswagen and General Motors.

Since 2009, GAZ has prioritized building large commercial vehicles. The iconic car he made was GAZ Volga Siber (2008), GAZ Volga LWB (2005-2007), and Chaika Limousine (1977-1988).

Speaking of commercial vehicles, some time ago the biggest truck manufacturer in Russia, Kamaz also began to look at Indonesia.

Suzuki GSX150 Bandit Officially Released, Use Satria F150's Special Face

Not only coming from the four-wheel segment or commercial segment, the two-wheel segment is also quite crowded in the 2018 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) event thanks to the launch of a new product from Suzuki, the Suzuki GSX150 Bandit. Gossip about the presence of this motorbike itself has been exploding since a few months ago, and now the original figure of this motorbike can be seen immediately, check it.

Seeing the original figure of the Suzuki GSX150 Bandit, the first thing that came to mind was "You know, this is Suzuki Satria F150 FI". Yep, that's the mind that first appeared because indeed the headlights of the Suzuki GSX150 Bandit are very similar to that of Suzuki Satria F150 FI.

Even so if you see the taillights of the Suzuki GSX150 Bandit, it is very similar to the Suzuki Satria F150 FI, it's just that there is no turn signal inside the lamp shell because the turn signal is made separately in the rear fenders. The same thing also happened on the front side where the shell part of the lamp got additional turn signal on the right and left side of the top. This Suzuki GSX150 Bandit lamp shell looks wider and contains more than Suzuki Satria's.

For the body itself, it is actually still very similar to the body of the Suzuki GSX-S150 which has been sliding first. It's just that there is a difference on the side of the boncenger seat of the Suzuki GSX150 Bandit which uses a tandem model, quite in contrast to the seat of the split seat of the Suzuki GSX-S150. For the color scheme itself, Suzuki provides four choices, namely Metallic Matte Titanium Silver color, Brilliant White / Aura Yellow, Stronger Red / Titanium Black, Titanium Black.
