The automotive industry began in the 1860s with hundreds of manufacturers that pioneered the horseless carriage. For many decades, the United States led the world in total automobile production. In 1929, before the Great Depression, the world had 32,028,500 automobiles in use, and the U.S. automobile industry produced over 90% of them. After 1945, the U.S. produced about 75 percent of world’s auto production. In 1980, the U.S. was overtaken by Japan and then became world leader again in 1994. In 2006, Japan narrowly passed the U.S. in production and held this rank until 2009, when China took the top spot with 13.8 million units.

The MPV is known as “the people carrier” because this vehicle is bigger and taller than other cars . Indonesians enjoy taking trips with the family (and/or invite some friends) and therefore a big car is required. When gross domestic product growth boosts people’s purchasing power while consumer confidence is strong, people are willing to buy a car. However, in times of economic uncertainty (slowing economic expansion and reduced optimism – or pessimism – about future personal financial situations) people tend to postpone the purchase of relatively expensive items such as a car.
