2.2 Indonesia
Indonesia is seeking to use its large nickel reserves to develop the electric vehicle industry. According to the Indonesian government's
plan, pure electric vehicles will account for 20% of all new car sales by 2025; the government has also introduced various tax incentives
to encourage cars. Manufacturers invest in pure electric vehicles. Meanwhile, the government plans to move the capital to the island of
Borneo, where it plans to build a "green" city that relies mainly on public transport and runs entirely on renewable energy.
It is reported that Foxconn Technology Group is considering the investment in the new capital Nusantara to build an electric bus system
and Internet of Things network, a move that will support the USD 34bn construction project in Indonesia. On June 26, the chairman of
Foxconn Group's flagship subsidiary Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd. also discussed with Indonesian President Joko Widodo a plan
to invest USD 8bn in a manufacturing plant with an electric scooter startup Gogoro.
China's SWMW (SAIC GM Wuling) also released a mini pure electric vehicle not long ago, and it plans to start production in Indonesia
before the end of this year. Although the company has not announced the sales price of the new pure electric vehicle in Indonesia,
according to the pricing strategy of the Chinese market, the car is likely to detonate the pure electric vehicle market in Indonesia.
