Although the car is still in the planning stages, electric motor products actually present first. In fact, some electric motors can already be used by consumers for everyday purposes.
So what about the lubricant machine industry? Keep in mind, electric vehicles do not require any lubricant on the machine. How to address the possibility of this busy issue?
"The electric car that comes from efficiency, the same as our design is efficiency. Therefore, in the future if we talk about automotive LCGC it tends to shock machine, metal working and others ... our products are there who support it and us the tendency to achieve manufacturing precision, "said Regional Sales Manager ExxonMobil Lubricants Indonesia, Sihol Simanjuntak when contacted INDUSTRY.co.id in Jakarta, Wednesday (08/30/2017).
He added, for the development of the car will not be as fast as a conventional car. "The application is still far away and Indonesia still needs adaptation," he explained.
According to him, the application of electrical technology still requires a fairly long stage and this will not affect the lubricant industry. In addition, electric vehicles will not be as much as conventional vehicles already in circulation.
"The electric car is a local product, our job is to try to support the local production, so car lubricants are here to provide lubrication solutions to improve productivity," Sihol said.
When asked how the influence of electric cars for lubricants, he explained, is not significantly influential. But there is little influence, especially in the production process.
However entrepreneurs in the lubricant industry does not negate the potential behind the electric vehicle. If there is a market of lubricants industry certainly go in the same direction.
