JAKARTADAILY.ID – Indonesian Ministry of Industry is optimistic that the target set by President Joko Widodo to create two million electric motorcycles will be achieved in a short time.
Minister of Industry Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita revealed that the target of two million electric motorcycles in the country is very realistic, considering the interest from investors to open electric motorcycle production facilities is quite large.
Currently, there are 35 automotive manufacturers that are ready to produce electric motorcycles with a capacity of one million vehicles per year and are targeted to increase to two million units by next year.

In an effort to support the electric vehicle ecosystem in the country, good collaboration is needed from each Ministry, because each have different tasks in supporting the development of national electric vehicles.
"We at the Ministry of Industry support the supply side and ensure that the production of electric vehicles can grow quickly. Meanwhile, other ministries/agencies prepare the infrastructure. This must be well coordinated so that everything can run smoothly, “said Agus.
