Toyota Alphard-lookalike Skorpius AS100 to launch in Indonesia by Q4 2022; CKD planned 01

The burgeoning Indonesian electric vehicle (EV) market gets another new competitor. Hascar Automotive Group, currently a distributor for continental car brands in the archipelago, is planning to locally assemble (CKD) and sell this Toyota Alphard-lookalike EV known as the Skorpius AS100.

Currently, the 5-door EV you see here is just a prototype that Hascar is previewing. According to KupanganOTO, the AS100 is still going through the homologation process before it can officially be launched.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1685525140735-0'); });

Hascar’s Director and CEO Yedi U. Sondy is quick to note that the car they have just previewed is just a prototype and the final product might differ from the car they have on display. However, we’re sure that the Alphard-like grille will be a permanent fixture on the car.

The company is aiming for a Q4 2022 launch, Hascar is still ironing out licencing and regulatory compliance issues related to investment and incentives.

There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
