PT. Suzuki IndoMobil Motor is a joint venture between Suzuki Motor Corporation and the IndoMobil Group. The company is located in Jakarta, Indonesia and specialized in manufacturing Suzuki vehicles for the local market. Their first product was the ST20 Carry (introduced in 1978), it saw extensive use as an Angkot.[1] Nicknamed "Turungtung", it was built until at least 1983.[2] This is an onomatopoetic word for the sound made by the Carry's two-stroke engine.
