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.
