Electric Cars are Increasingly Interested in Indonesia

Rancakmedia.com - Surely you are no longer a stranger to electric cars, right? However, did you know that electric cars are increasingly in demand in Indonesia?

Even though electric cars are no longer new, the electric car market is growing rapidly, and many people prefer electric cars over gasoline-powered cars.

Interestingly, currently the Indonesian government has even issued a program to accelerate the entry into force of electric vehicles in Indonesia through a Presidential Regulation.

Types of Electric Cars

Before going deeper into electric car technology, it is important to know a few things about the three different types of eco-friendly car technology, which are as follows:

Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs)

Because they operate entirely on electricity stored in batteries, they are sometimes referred to as "all electric vehicles" (EVs).

Unlike a car that uses fuel oil which has a combustion system, BEV does not have an engine. The electricity stored in the battery can be charged using the battery and power connections.

Only a fully electric charging station is required to start a BEV car. However, in Indonesia, there are not many stations to choose from.

The way BEV cars work is that the electricity that comes from the battery in the form of DC will be converted into AC to be able to activate the driving force of the car.

Well, the accelerator pedal section of the machine has the goal of sending a signal to the control module section which functions to change the speed of the car which can change power from the AC mains via an inverter, but this can only happen if the car uses an induction motor.

After that the motor or engine will move the wheels through the gears, because the braking system on an electric car is somewhat different when compared to a car in general, when the user pushes the motor and turns it into a generator, the existing electricity will be stored in the battery section.

Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV)

The phrase "hybrid car" refers to a car that has two electric modes: an electric car powered by a battery and an internal combustion engine powered by gasoline and oil.

When compared to BEV and PHEV, the battery in HEV can only be recharged by revving the engine or by moving the car.

Unlike BEV cars which rely on a charging pot-based power supply, HEV cars do not have a charging port and cannot be recharged.

The way the HEV works is also very interesting because this car has a tank that carries gasoline and a set of batteries to store electricity.

So, when the user brakes later, the engine or motorbike used may be useful for shifting the transmission simultaneously.

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV)

This series is sometimes referred to as a hybrid because it features gasoline combustion technology and the use of an electric traction engine.

If an HEV car cannot be recharged with electricity from PLN, PHEV car users can recharge it by connecting the car to a charging point.

Usually PHEV cars on the market can be operated in two ways, namely through the all-electric mode which only uses electricity to drive the car and the hybrid mode which has the potential to drive electricity and gasoline simultaneously.

Some PHEVs in Indonesia can be up to 70 miles.


In the article above, we have provided 3 types of environmentally friendly electric cars, namely HEV, PHEV and BEV.

Thus the article about Electric Cars is Increasingly Interested in Indonesia, I hope the above article can be useful and help all of you.
