The 2nd edition of Busworld Southeast Asia, organised by Busworld and its Indonesian partner, GEM Indonesia, will be held for three days, from 5 to 7 October 2022 in the Jakarta International Expo in Indonesia.
After a first successful show in 2019, the bus and coach industry is ready to meet in person again. Like other regions in the world, Southeast Asia’s bus & coach business was largely impacted by the pandemic. But now that the market is recovering and the time is perfect to relaunch the business at Busworld’s event.
Not only the coach business is picking up again, but also the bus industry is at a turning point with bus electrification plans being high on the agenda of the Indonesian government.
Lots of buses and coaches on show
According to Askarindo, the association of bodybuilders in Indonesia, the four biggest Indonesian bodybuilder companies Laksana, New Armada, Adi Putro and Tentrem represent between 85 and 90% of the market. All four of them are more than eager to showcase their latest buses and coaches at the show.
Laksana will launch its brand new coach, which according to them will be an absolute eyecatcher. New Armada will also launch a new coach, the rest remains a secret and will be unveiled on the showfloor. Adi Putro will bring the only monocoque bus of Indonesia and Tentrem invites everyone to come and discover what they will be bringing in their booth.
Two Chinese bus brands with ongoing ongoing electric bus trials at TransJakarta, are presenting electric vehciles. Golden Dragon will have a 6 meter and a 12 meter electric bus in their booth. Zhongtong Bus, via the Indonesian distributor Mobilindo Armada, will showcase a 6 meter electric bus.
