Tata Motors has sold over 1,000 units in the neighbouring Indonesian archipelago and the Ace continues to top the charts there.

The release also states that TMT JSC is one of the top 10 brands in Vietnam, with 3S centres in almost all provinces and cities of the country. TMT will be provided with both completely knocked down (CKD) and completely built units (CBU) vehicles for assembly and distribution respectively. This is the third market for Tata Motors in the ASEAN region, after recent launches of its commercial vehicles in Indonesia, Philippines, and Malaysia.

Tata’s performance in the neighbouring country of Indonesia has been noteworthy, selling 1,000 units in less than 18 months. Though the figure might not sound impressive, it must be noted that the company sells locally assembled or imported units vs manufacturers whose production facilities are located in the highly competitive ASEAN region.
