INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) will propose to President Joko Widodo to issue a ban on the sale of diesel and gasoline-fueled vehicles in 2040. This is an attempt to accelerate the development and use of electric vehicles.

Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Ignatius Jonan said the electric vehicle program should be able to advance for future generations, for the environment and for better business, energy independence, and to save foreign exchange.

We mature the roadmap implementation, this program must be running, "said Jonan, Friday (25/08/2017)

According to Jonan, the President asked for a draft of the rules immediately prepared which were discussed with the stakeholders as the basis for the development of electric vehicles going forward.
