Director General of Metal, Machinery, Transportation and Electronic Equipment (ILMATE) Harjanto explained that there was a joint company from Japan that formed the test of the vehicle. For automotive vehicles there is Honda, the battery industry from Panasonic as well as consultant of New Energy Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

"Electric vehicles will be tested in the first half of this year with a trial period of six months to a year," said Harjanto recently.
