Daihatsu said about electric car readiness in Indonesia
TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Electric cars are always a concern and an interesting thing in the automotive industry in the country. Moreover, electric concept cars are also always presented at automotive exhibitions in Indonesia.
Responding to the issue of electric cars, Marketing Director of PT Astra Daihatsu Motor (ADM) Amelia Tjandra said that electric vehicles must be seen from the capabilities and capabilities and effectiveness of the industry.
According to Amel, what is still a question is what electricity is used from? If you still use coal it’s the same.
“If we say that electricity is more environmentally friendly, the question is what electricity is made from. If electricity is made from coal, it’s just the same, just the actual transfer, so we are still a question mark, “he said in Bandung, Saturday, November 10, 2018.” Then how about the readiness of facilities, if you want to charge (recharge the battery) , if there is a car, is the infrastructure ready. “
He added that the automotive industry currently developing in Indonesia is spare parts for conventional cars. If he suddenly switches to an electric car, he is worried that it will have an impact on reducing labor.
So, according to him, the government must look there first. “That the trend is to electric vehicles and all infrastructure must be prepared,” he said.
Previously, the Ministry of Industry sought that the development rules for electric cars could be completed by the end of this year. Minister of Industry Airlangga Hartarto said, after being delayed many times, the regulation would be made in the format of a presidential regulation.
“This year we are trying to finish. The important thing is related to fiscal policies here,” he said in his office, Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
Airlangga said the regulation was still being discussed at the level of the Coordinating Minister for the Economy before getting approval from President Joko Widodo. The regulation regulates development and innovation research, industrial development, and the acceleration of the use of electric motorized vehicles on the highway.
In addition, this regulation will include the provision of fiscal facilities, such as government-borne import duties, export financing, and working capital credit assistance for the procurement of battery swaps .
