Indonesia is currently increasing production to reach a battery capacity of 140 GWh by 2030, of which 50 GWh will be allocated for exports. The rest will be used for Indonesia's domestic electric vehicle industry, especially for motorcycles rather than cars. Indonesia increases investment in the EV battery sector to USD 33 billion by 2033. Indonesia provides many opportunities for foreign EV manufacturers, including potential partners from China's EV Industry.

Currently, the automotive industry in Indonesia has moved aggressively by starting to apply electrical energy as vehicle fuel in the context of using environmentally friendly technology and efforts to reduce carbon emissions caused by the use of fossil fuel energy. This is supported by Indonesia's potential to become a major player in the production of electric vehicle batteries because it has nickel reserves and is the largest nickel producer in the world. Thus, Indonesia is a strategic country and has the potential for the development of the EV industry.
