JAKARTA -- Japanese and South Korean automakers are using an auto show in Indonesia to show off their eco-friendly models as Southeast Asia's largest economy pushes green technologies to meet ambitious goals for reducing carbon emissions.

A total of 25 four-wheeled vehicle brands -- 21 passenger cars and four commercial vehicles, mostly from East Asian manufacturers -- are participating at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show, organized by the Association of Indonesian Automotive Manufacturers. The event kicked off Thursday in a Jakarta suburb.
