TANGERANG, KOMPAS.com – Daihatsu Sigra is one of the mainstay cars for online taxi drivers. Competitive prices, saving fuel, and being able to carry up to seven passengers is a dream for online taxi drivers.
Nevertheless, Hendrayadi Lastiyoso, Marketing & CR Division Head of PT Astra International Daihatsu Sales Operation (AI-DSO), said, could not confirm how many Sigra were operated as online taxis.
“We can’t say, yesterday someone said that Sigra is widely used by online taxis. But we don’t have the data whether private or online taxis, because when they bought they didn’t say for online taxis,” Hendrayadi said in Tangerang, Monday (9/16 / 2019).
Furthermore Hendrayadi said, his party also could not calculate whether Sigra which was used as an online taxi was purchased by fleet or individually, namely private, because there was no data.
“We see it as private. If it’s a fleet they usually rent it out, if later it will become an online taxi, we don’t know, “he said.
Even though he said he did not know the numbers, Hendrayadi revealed that there were reasons why Sigra was chosen to be an online taxi fleet, first the price and second, the MPV type.
“But indeed it is very suitable, many use it for online taxis. Because of what? Because the price was very affordable, then with 7 seats so many people who like it to be used as an online taxi, “he said.
