The handover marked the end of production of the locally assembled Mazda E2000 which was introduced in 1996, and also saw PT Unicor Prima Motor transformed into Chery car distributor. Mazda Motor Indonesia solely relied on importing its line-up of vehicles from Japan, Thailand and the Philippines, except the Suzuki-made Mazda VX-1 . In 2005, GM ended Blazer production in Indonesia, effectively rendering their manufacturing plant in Bekasi as dormant. Since then, GM effectively acts as an importer of Chevrolet-badged Daewoo cars from Thailand and South Korea.

MR90 stands for ‘Mobil Rakyat 1990’, (‘people’s car of the 1990s’), as the car was introduced around July 1990. To achieve a competitive price for the car, and with the support of Suharto, Indomobile requested that the government remove the 30 percent luxury goods tax. This proposal was unexpectedly rejected by the Finance Ministry, citing the absence of a ‘national car’ regulation and the fact that the car is categorized as a sedan – which meant it ould only be considered a luxury good. As the result, sales were below expectations by an order of magnitude, since the car ended up significantly more expensive than the Toyota Kijang. The Mazda MR90 was later revised and renamed to Mazda Vantrend and Mazda Baby Boomer, hoping to improve sales.
