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. "The application of electric vehicles can not be rejected. The stakeholders please give feedback, not (give) an objection. 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. "Mr. President also asked if it could be completed and encouraged at least finish the rules first, because this must load a lot of cargo," said Jonan.

The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources which accelerates the utilization of electric vehicles with stakeholders such as observers, associations and ministries will also propose exemption of import duty and PPn BM for electric vehicles (Completely Knock Down / CKD).
