The future of electric motorcycles in Indonesia


Growing demand for electric motorcycles


The demand for electric motorcycles in Indonesia has been steadily growing over the past few years, driven by a combination of factors such as increasing awareness about environmental issues, rising fuel prices, and government support for green transportation solutions. This trend is expected to continue in the coming years, with the market for electric motorcycles in Indonesia projected to expand at a rapid pace. The presence of leading Chinese electric motorcycle manufacturers at the 2023 Indonesia EV Exhibition is a testament to the growing interest and investment in the country's electric vehicle market.


National Electric Vehicle Roadmap


The Indonesian government has recognized the importance of promoting electric vehicles as a means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. As part of its commitment to supporting the growth of the electric vehicle market, the government has unveiled the National Electric Vehicle Roadmap, which outlines the country's strategy for the development and promotion of electric vehicles, including motorcycles, over the short and long-term.



The Indonesian government has issued relevant policies. By 2030, subsidize 13 million electric motorcycles and 2 million electric vehicles; completely ban the sales and production of fuel motorcycles by 2040; completely ban the production and sales of fuel vehicles by 2050.


Fiscal incentives for electric vehicles


To encourage the adoption of electric vehicles, the Indonesian government has introduced a range of fiscal incentives, such as tax breaks, import duty exemptions, and reduced vehicle registration fees for electric vehicles. These incentives are designed to make electric vehicles more affordable and accessible to consumers, thereby helping to drive the growth of the electric vehicle market in the country.

Largest electric vehicle subsidy package up to IDR 7,350,000 per vehicle to be implemented in 2023.


Non-fiscal incentives for electric vehicles


In addition to fiscal incentives, the Indonesian government has also implemented a range of non-fiscal incentives to promote the adoption of electric vehicles. These include initiatives such as the development of dedicated parking spaces for electric vehicles, the installation of charging stations in public areas, and the promotion of research and development in the electric vehicle industry. These non-fiscal incentives are aimed at creating a supportive ecosystem for the growth of the electric vehicle market in Indonesia and ensuring that the country stays at the forefront of the global electric vehicle revolution.


Investment in charging infrastructure


One of the key challenges in the widespread adoption of electric motorcycles in Indonesia is the lack of adequate charging infrastructure. However, both the government and private sector have been investing heavily in the development of charging stations across the country, with the aim of creating a robust and reliable charging network that can support the increasing number of electric vehicles on the road. The expansion of charging infrastructure will play a crucial role in the future growth of the electric motorcycle market in Indonesia, as it will help overcome range anxiety and make electric motorcycles a more viable option for consumers.


Technological advancements in electric motorcycles


Technological advancements in the electric motorcycle industry, such as improvements in battery technology, electric motor efficiency, and charging capabilities, will also contribute to the future growth of the electric motorcycle market in Indonesia. As electric motorcycles become more powerful, reliable, and efficient, they will become an increasingly attractive alternative to traditional gas-powered motorcycles. Moreover, as the technology continues to evolve, the prices of electric motorcycles are expected to become more competitive, making them more accessible to a wider range of consumers.
