Citroën will therefore return to Indonesia in 2023 with a range of three models which will be enriched by the other two models of the C-cubed program to form a complete range of vehicles which will attack the Indonesian market.
It is therefore with great ambition that Citroën is signing its return to Indonesia, where it intends to take its full place in this market in order to develop its international sales. For this, the brand can count on its factory in India which will supply it with the three models of the C-Cubed program as well as the C5 Aircross, only the C4 will be imported from Europe unless manufacturing in Malaysia is decided, Stellantis owning a factory in this country.
Manufacturing in India should make it possible to offer future Citroëns at affordable prices, as Vincent Cobée pointed out, declaring "the C3 and the two other products, which will be positioned below the price of 300 million rupees, the C4 and C5 Aircross being more upscale cars." The C3 in Indonesia will use the same engines as in India, namely the 83 and 110 hp Puretech petrol engines associated with a manual gearbox then, probably, automatic. Even if the range has not been presented, the information shows a fairly well-equipped C3 since it should receive central opening, two airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, among others, or superior equipment to India. As a result, the prices should be higher but within the limit of 300 million Indonesian rupees or €20,000 which remains quite high compared to direct competitors even if this price does not necessarily apply to the C3 directly.
With a complete range of vehicles, Citroën intends to take its full share on the Indonesian market and is determined to develop internationally, so there is a good chance that in the coming months the brand will make its arrival on other markets to develop its presence in the markets of this region and depend less on Europe.
