Electric Vehicle - The future of Mobility

  • Lower cost of ownership
    Lower cost of ownership

    Using electric vehicles means no need to buy gasoline anymore. The expense will certainly switch to the use of electricity as the main energy. There is no need to rely on fuel that fluctuates in price more expensive.

  • Maintenance

    Mechanical electric vehicles differ from ordinary vehicles. Some components usually have to get regular maintenance, no longer needed. Electric vehicles are driven by electric motors (Dinamo), no longer an internal combustion engine that needs lubrication.

  • Better for the Environment

    Electric vehicles do not produce gas emissions. Unlike conventional machines that emit residual combustion substances from oil-processed fuel. Obviously very environmental friendly.

Why Switch To Electric Vehicles?

Benefits of electric vehicles for you and the environment

Healthier Healthier

If there are many who turn to the means of power-driven mobility, the air is increasingly clean from pollution. The impacts are of course to surrounding environment and health. Various diseases commonly caused by pollution is also drastically reduced.

Forget About Fuel Forget About Fuel

Many spending money can be reduced. From the cost of fuel, the vehicle tax (if any) to the treatment. You can also save more each month. No need to stop by at the refueling station. Charging the battery can be from home, through the use of daily electricity. More practical and not time consuming should queue the contents of gasoline.

Renewable Energy Renewable Energy

If it is still dependent on petroleum, it will gradually be exhausted. The switch to electric mobility, the use of indispensable energy sources can be reduced drastically. Oil reserves are always maintained.

Key Components In Electric Vehicles

What makes an electric vehicle work

Battery Battery

Battery is the main energy source in electric vehicles. To recharge it can be through a house electricity or a special recharge station. Types of batteries used are: Lithium-ion, Lead Acid and Nickel Metal Hydride.

Electric Motor Electric Motor

This is the one that tasked with transmitting power to wheels. The resulting outputs also vary according to the specifications that the manufacturer wants to achieve. The best thing about electric motor is always capable of generating large torque without being affected by engine rotation. Hence the average electric car has a pull that exceeds conventional cars.

Charger Charger

Charging electric cars is the same as charging the Smartphone battery. It takes a special adaptor to connect with a power source. The tool is available as one package when buying an electric car, or sold separately.

Electric Vehicles in Indonesia

Though it is still a rare sighting, with the new regulation on emission-based taxation schemes, it is possible in the next five years, electric vehicles become something very common. Electric vehicle is a means of mobility that is driven by an electronic motor, with the energy source stored in the battery. The shape can vary. Cars, motorcycles, and even personal bicycles and scooters are classified as electric vehicle.

Electric vehicles are the best possible solution to accommodate transportation needs, while lowering pollution levels, especially in large cities. Nowadays, personal electric vehicle products such as electric bicycle, personal mobility scooter are getting common to see. Mostly in rural area.

Even the online transport service provider, Grab, successfully introduced Grab Scoot in a residential area. With a very cheap cost, you can use an electric scooter for for half an hour.

Electric motorcycles are moving into the right direction. Honda, Viar, Gesits (local electric motorbike manufacturer) are already penetrating the market, followed by bicycle producer, United. Unfortunately, it is still scarce.

Different story comes from four-wheeler, though. Some are stating that they are ready to produce electric vehicle if the PP 73 of 2019 comes in effect in 2021. But, most major manufactures are taking save steps by pushing hybrid vehicles, as a start. As we know, hybrid car uses electric motor and conventional engine to move.

  • What is an electric vehicle?

    Electric vehicle is a means of transportation, which is driven by electric motor. The shape can vary. Cars, motorcycles, scooters, or personal mobility such as electric bicycles can be considered as an electric vehicle.

  • Why are electric vehicles considered environmentally friendly?

    Because it does not use a motor that emit emissions from the combustion process that drives the piston to run it.

  • How long does it take to charge the electric vehicles?

    Depending on battery capacity and the ability of the charger. For example, nowadays, the charger to recharge the car battery in 30 minutes to reach a capacity of 80 percent. But the producers are committed to trim the recharge time of this battery.

  • Do electric vehicles use oil?

    No.But on some vehicles, there are some fluids act as cooling system. Necessary to cool the battery.

  • Is Indonesia ready to accept electric vehicle presence?

    Sure. Especially in the automotive sector. Government Regulation (PP) No 73 year 2019 has been published since October 2019. Automotive producers and related government agencies are given up to 2021 to prepare everything. At that time, the PP 73 came into effect.

  • What does the tax scheme do?

    For personal means of transportation such as bicycles, there is no regulation yet. But for cars and electric motorcycle, there is a PPnBM of 15 percent. It complies with government regulation No. 73 of 2019, which is in full force on 16 October 2021.

  • Who are the electric vehicle manufacturers in Indonesia?

    For cars, no one has specifically sold electric vehicles. Still within the scope of hybrid cars. Some small industries have begun to boldly market the converter to turn ordinary engine cars into electric cars. But for motorcycles, there are Viar with Q1, Honda PCX Electric (marketed to Fleet Consumer), Gesits. Even United, known as a bicycle maker began to venture into marketing electric motorcycles. From the transportation service provider, Grab has begun renting a small scooter (Grab Scoot) as the personal transportation available at some point in rural JABODETABEK.
