Electric cars ready to hit the road

The Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry has projected 125 thousand electric cars and 1.34 million electric motorcycles to be operational in 2021, potentially reducing fuel oil consumption to 0.44 million kiloliter per year.

The government has issued a Ministerial Decree (no. 13/2020) on electric charging infrastructure to accelerate the implementation of the battery-based electric vehicle (KBLBB) program.

The government is planning to build 572 electric vehicle re-charging stations (SPKLU) and three thousand public electric vehicle battery replacement stations (SPBKLU) by 2021. The re-charging stations will be set up at strategic locations such as malls, office areas, airports, apartments, taxi pools, and gas stations (SPBU). Meanwhile, the use of electric motorcycles is expected to reach 757,139 units and electric buses 10,227 units for the same period.

By 2025, Indonesia is expected to have 6,318 recharging stations and 17 thousand battery replacement stations, with the number of electric cars and motorcycles projected to reach 374 thousand and 11.8 million units, respectively. The potential fuel saving is expected to reach 2.56 million kiloliter by 2025.
