Jakarta (ANTARA News) – Indonesia has been able to make electric cars, although not 100 percent domestically produced components.

Although it can not be mass produced electric car made in the nation have got attention at home and abroad.

Minister of Research and Technology (Research and Technology) Gusti Muhammad Hatta said there are nine stages or levels that must be traversed in the process of research and development of an electric car until it can be mass produced.

Until now, the exploration stage level 1-3, level 4-6, which means the stage of development to prototyping, tried, and tested has passed.

There is still a level 7-9 times that in laboratory testing and field testing to further go into manufacturing or mass production.

Minister of Research and Technology (Research and Technology) Gusti Muhammad Hatta said the current research and development of electric cars in the country is still at the level of seven.

“Electric cars are now trying to develop entry level 7, if there is no big problem, just a minor-minor problem could go into level 8 Which can be mass produced it is already level 9,” he said.

Some things that should be tested on an electric car such as the power of electricity, electric drive motors, batteries, electric motors, and transmission systems.

Expert staff Minister of Research and Technology (Research and Technology) field transport Budiastra Wayan said until now Indonesia has not had an electric car testing facility equipment, despite having Puspiptek BPPT testing laboratory in Serpong, South Tangerang.

The government, according to him, was preparing all testing facilities including an estimated measurement tools available in August or September 2014 It is expected that by 2015, targeted all electric car from inside and outside the country has been able to be tested.

the readiness of the supply circuit

The minister said to be able to mass produce electric cars still need more preparation, including in developing a series of supply.

“Should be a lot of preparation to make the appliance first, right if you want a lot of (mass production) would have to make the print tool, it is still manual,” he said.

According to the Minister, the existing industries in Surabaya were able to make engine blocks for cars. Electric motors, platforms, control systems, propulsion even been able to master, lived lithium battery which still must be developed.

“LIPI has long make electric buses, but the battery tuh wet, so it takes up huge space. Well now we are trying to develop lithium, dry battery with smaller size but big energy,” he said.

Because of that, he said the one that was prepared by the Ministry of Research and Technology (Kemristek) to support the electric car industry develop lithium battery industry by creating a pilot plant lithium undertaken jointly by a National Research Consortium Lithium Batteries.

This involves academics from the University of Indonesia, Gadjah Mada University, University of Gastric Mangkurat, and the Surabaya Institute of Technology.

In addition, involving the private sector that is Nipress Indonesia, and research institutions LIPI, BPPT, Batan.

Chairman of the National Research Consortium Lithium Prihandoko Bambang said the consortium would duplicate the tools to produce the lithium battery, and if it has managed to develop new tools to produce batteries with a volt higher.

In 2015–2016, he said lithium pilot plant experiments will be carried out to realize the factories of any “work package” from upstream to downstream production of lithium batteries that support.

Consortium, he continued, also targets of Domestic Component (DCL) for lithium batteries for electric cars developed focus has been able to achieve 80-90 percent in 2016.

To achieve the level of local content, he hopes industries in other countries could support lithium pilot plant is being developed by the consortium.

Support of PT Krakatau Steel, PT Aneka Tambang (Antam), PT Timah, PT Alumindo Maspion, and Batam Polytechnic.

The government is targeting 2014 initially electric cars could be mass produced with industry roadmap ongoing.

A total of 10,000 units of electric cars become the target of production, but it is delayed.

Ministry of State Owned Enterprises, Ministry of Research and Technology, Ministry of Education and Culture, and the Ministry of Industry with several universities to develop a national electric car industry, said Minister of Industry (Industry Minister) MS Hidayat.

In addition, he added a national electric car program success is largely determined by the development of supporting infrastructure.

“We expect accelerated development of supporting infrastructure or at least in tandem with mass production.”
