Indonesia looks into electric vehicles

The results of the first part of a study on electric vehicles have received praise from Indonesia’s Minister for Research, Technology and Higher Education.

According to a recent report, the study involved academics from six state universities and the automotive industry.

The six state universities that were facilitated by the Ministry to conduct this study are the University of Indonesia, Bandung Institute of Technology, Surakarta State University, Gadjah Mada University, Surabaya Institute of Technology and the Udayana University.

The study required them to research on a national electric vehicle. It revealed that the use of electric vehicles, whether hybrid or plug-in hybrid, is generally more efficient.

Moreover, it is less costly in terms of energy consumption as compared to non-electric vehicles that have internal combustion engines.

A hybrid vehicle can save energy by up to 50%, while the plug in type saves within 75% to 80%.

This collaboration between the government and universities should continue in order to realise new studies that will help Indonesia in creating new and excellent goods.

Hopefully, this project will entice other universities to contribute in other new research projects.

This research project on transportation and renewable energy should have a clear direction towards the production of the goods, which will meet the needs of the society and overcome its challenges.

The Minister for Industry said that the government is pushing for the use of environment-friendly automotive technology through the Low Carbon Emission Vehicle program.

According to this report, through the Low Carbon Emission Vehicle program, the Government has plans of scrapping a 40% luxury goods tax on sales of electric cars.

There are also plans of drastically cutting the import tax on these items from up to 40%, depending on the vehicle type, to 5%.

Furthermore, the program will guarantee energy security, especially in the land transportation sector.

The Government has committed that by 2025, a reduction of 29% in greenhouse gas emissions will be achieved.

Aside from the state universities, the Ministry of Industry has tasked Toyota Indonesia to participate in the comprehensive study.

The Minister for Industry is confident that the national automotive industry will be able to produce vehicles with electric and combustion engines, which can cater to domestic and international demands.

The results that will be produced from the study will serve as the basis of the government in the development of their electric vehicle policy.

May this help them reach their goal of producing 20% low carbon emission vehicles by 2025.
