Indonesia aims for locally produced car

High school students' vehicle gets green light from officials looking for alternative to imported automobiles.

    A car developed by high-school students in Indonesia is being promoted as a way of kickstarting the country's own automobile industry.

    Virtually all of the country's 24 million cars are made by foreign companies and with it a handsome profit.

    But now local officials are restarting the initiative to get a locally produced version on the road.
