Tata Motors has entered into the Indonesian auto markets with the opening of a Jakarta based subsidiary PT Tata Motors Indonesia. Based on research and studies, Indonesia is a big play ground for the Tata Motors brand, which has at its disposal a wide range of products. Heavy duty trucks and commercial vehicles as also passenger vehicles make up this variety of vehicles offered by Tata.

Though the company has already set foot down in the country, it will start sale of its products in 2013 for which preparations are already underway. At the time of launching their vehicles in the market, PT Tata Motors hopes to have an arsenal of about 10 to 15 dealers to cater to sales of units, customer needs, servicing and sale of spares.

After a span of three years, the company hopes to have at least 60 dealerships, and about 100 workshops and 300 spare parts retailers. In order to help cater to the needs of the ASEAN region, the company is mulling the setup of a manufacturing plant in this region. At the 20th international Indonesia motor Show, 14 vehicles from Tata Motors which have been shortlisted for the Indonesian market will be put on display.
