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 .

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Mobil listrik selalu menjadi perhatian dan hal yang menarik di industri otomotif Tanah Air. Apalagi mobil konsep listrik juga selalu dihadirkan dalam pameran-pameran otomotif di Indonesia.

Menanggapi soal mobil listrik, Direktur Marketing PT Astra Daihatsu Motor (ADM) Amelia Tjandra mengatakan, kendaraan listrik harus dilihat dari kemampuan dan kesanggupan serta efektivitas dari industri.

Menurut Amel, yang masih menjadi pertanyaan adalah, listrik yang dipakai itu terbuat dari apa? Jika masih menggunakan batu bara itu sama saja.

“Kalau kita bilang energi listrik lebih ramah lingkungan, pertanyaannya, listriknya itu dibuat dari apa. Kalau listrik dibikin dari batu bara, ya sama aja, hanya pemindahan saja sebenarnya, jadi kami masih tanda tanya,” ujarnya di Bandung, Sabtu, 10 November 2018. “Kemudian bagaimana kesiapan fasilitasnya, mau charge (isi ulang baterai) listrik sudah sanggup belum, kalau ada mobilnya, apakah infrastruktur sudah siap.”

Ia menambahkan bahwa industri otomotif yang saat ini berkembang di Indonesia adalah suku cadang untuk mobil konvensional. Kalau tiba-tiba beralih ke mobil listrik, ia khawatir akan berdampak pada pengurangan tenaga kerja.

Jadi, menurut dia, pemerintah harus lihat ke sana dulu. “Bahwa trennya ke kendaraan listrik dan harus disiapkan segala infrastrukturnya,” ujranya.

Sebelumnya, Kementerian Perindustrian mengupayakan agar aturan pengembangan mobil listrik dapat rampung pada akhir tahun ini. Menteri Perindustrian Airlangga Hartarto mengatakan, setelah tertunda berkali-kali, regulasi itu akan dibuat dalam format peraturan presiden.

“Tahun ini kami usahakan selesai. Yang penting, terkait kebijakan fiskalnya ada di sini,” kata dia di kantornya, Selasa, 6 November 2018.

Airlangga mengatakan regulasi itu masih dibahas di tingkat Menteri Koordinator Perekonomian sebelum mendapat persetujuan dari Presiden Joko Widodo. Regulasi tersebut mengatur tentang penelitian pengembangan dan inovasi, pengembangan industri, dan percepatan penggunaan kendaraan bermotor listrik di jalan raya.

Selain itu, aturan ini akan berisi pemberian fasilitas fiskal, seperti bea masuk ditanggung pemerintah, pembiayaan ekspor, dan bantuan kredit modal kerja untuk pengadaan battery swaps.
