Indonesia June car sales rise 45 pct y/y to record high

JAKARTA, July 16 (Reuters) - Indonesia's domestic car sales
rose 45 percent in June from a year ago to a monthly record of
101,743 cars, the Indonesian Automotive Industry Association
(Gaikindo) said on Monday.
    The figure compared to year-on-year growth in May of 56.5
percent. Sales volumes were up 6.5 percent on a monthly basis,
after authorities imposed a new down payment requirement which
came into effect on June 15.
    Car sales, an indicator of private consumption in Southeast
Asia's biggest economy, are being driven by a growing middle
class and record low interest rates.
    In the first six months of the year sales volumes reached
535,270 cars, said the association, which said Toyota,
Daihatsu and Mitsubishi led sales.
    Bank Indonesia on Thursday said bank loans in May grew 26.3
percent with consumer loans up 20.3 percent against 20.5 percent
in April.
