Electric Motors Predicted to Reach 13 Million Units by 2030

The government is trying to make Indonesia a zero-emission country. One of the steps is the transition to electric vehicles. Currently, electric motors are increasingly popular in Indonesia. The number of electric motors in Indonesia is estimated at 1.34 million units in 2021. The number is projected to increase to 13 million units in 2030.

Electric motors are increasingly in demand in Indonesia. Not only because it is environmentally friendly, but the affordable price also makes electric motorbikes the vehicle of choice for the Indonesian people rather than electric cars or other conventional modes.

The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) also estimates that the number of electric motors in Indonesia will increase in the next few years. In 2021, the number of electric motors in the country is estimated at 1.34 million units.

The number then increased to as many as 11.8 million units. Meanwhile, the number of electric motorcycles is estimated to reach 13 million units in 2030. Meanwhile, the potential for electric cars in Indonesia is 125,000 units in 2021.

The number is targeted at 374,000 units by 2025. Meanwhile, the number of electric cars is projected to be 2.19 million units in 2030.

Furthermore, the government targets that there will be 31,859 public electric vehicle charging stations (SPKLU) and 67,000 units of general electric vehicle battery exchange stations (SPBKLU) by 2030. From here, the potential for fuel consumption savings will reach 6.03 million kilo liters.

More about electric vehicles, One of the most significant differences between electric vehicles and conventional motorized vehicles is the silence of the sound produced.

Besides not producing air pollution, electric cars also do not cause noise pollution. However, on the other hand, these conditions also harm driving safety.

The silent sound of electric vehicles is claimed to increase the risk of traffic accidents. Therefore, the discourse to require artificial sound in electric vehicles is considered the answer.

Heri Prabowo, Head of Sub-Directorate for Safety Management at the Ministry of Transportation, said that electric vehicles do have one advantage, namely noiselessness.

But the plan to regulate electric cars and motorcycles to have artificial sound, according to him, is not to make the vehicles louder or louder.

“It is one of the advantages of being silent. However, in terms of global regulations, transportation experts also view this as a hazard,” said Heri, at the PEVS seminar at JIExpo, Kemayoran (26/7/2022).

Heri explained that Indonesia already has standard rules for vehicle noise limits. According to him, artificial sound in electric vehicles will be set below the sound produced by conventional vehicles.

“The noise that causes the disturbance is actually rather high levels. But on the one hand, our society is in transition. From a sounding vehicle, it becomes a silent vehicle,” said Heri.

“So on the one hand, Indonesia is in an emergency. But on the one hand, that’s not our reason to discontinue electric vehicles. This means that this is a win-win solution, that’s where there is a compromise,” he said.
