JAKARTA, Oct. 11 (Xinhua) -- Since its launch on the Indonesian market last month, Chinese small city car Chery QQ has booked sales of 200 units with more on the waiting list, the local distributor said Wednesday.

"We don't expect the demand will be quite big. We also have orders on the waiting list," said Gunadi Shinduwinata, president of the country's leading automotive distributor Indomobil Group.

Given the promising market, Indomobil plans to open 11 new outlets across Java and Bali islands, he said.

Manufactured by Chery Automobile Co. Ltd., the 800-cc car is priced at around 67 million rupiah (7,334 U.S. dollars), available in standard and luxury models.

The manufacturer claimed Cherry QQ has the best mileage in its class, with 25 km per liter of gasoline.

Indomobil has targeted sales of 1,000 units by the end of the year. Enditem
