Comparison of electric car prices in RI, the United States and China

The Director General of Electricity at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM), Rida Mulyana, said charging rates for electric vehicles in Indonesia ranged from Rs 1,650 to Rs 2,450 per kWh.

The tariff would be a response to the publication of Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 55 of 2019 concerning the acceleration of the electric motor vehicle battery program for road transport. According to Rida, the tariff is considered "affordable" compared to the cost of charging electric vehicles in developed countries.

"We will see it expensive or cheap compared to overseas," said Rida, whom she met in central Jakarta last week.

The data presented by Rida in China, the country that sells the most electric vehicles (2 million units to date), charge a loading fee of 1485 to 5 643 rupees per kWh.

In addition, the United States applies a tariff rate of 4,010 to 10,247 rupees per kWh. Then the Netherlands charges 7,128 rupees - 10,692 rupees per kWh.

At the same time, two European countries, Austria and Germany, applied the most expensive tariff for the upper limit. Austria Rp. 5,792 - Rp. 13,365 per kWh and Germany Rp. 8.316 - Rp. 13,662 per kWh.

According to Rida, the charging rates of electric vehicles in Indonesia mentioned were still within the estimated limits. But he made sure to offer the second lowest price after China for the lower price limit.

"It has not been confirmed, there will be certainty," said Rida.

The price applies to the Public Vehicle Charging Station (SPKLU) for which safety standards are the responsibility of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources. The first SPKLU mission is entrusted to PLN in cooperation with state-owned enterprises (BUMN) or the private sector in accordance with the law.

The government has promised to increase the number of rechargeable electric vehicles that will be built in various locations, such as gas stations, service stations, offices, shopping malls, car parks, hotels, apartments and hospitals.

"The infrastructure (SPKLU) is easily accessible, there must be a special parking and does not interfere with security, safety, order, traffic flow," said Rida.
