Automakers at Indonesian auto show promise electric vehicles for G20 summit

At a car show in Indonesia, automakers announced details of the electric vehicles they plan to supply for the Group of 20 summit to be held in Bali in November.

Delegates are expected to travel around the island in electric vehicles.

At Indonesia’s biggest international auto show, which opened in suburban Jakarta on Thursday, automakers revealed what those vehicles will be.

Japanese Toyota Motor said it would supply around 140 electric units of its luxury Lexus model.

South Korean Hyundai Motor has promised about 320 units, including electric vehicles made in Indonesia. The company founded Indonesia’s first electric vehicle factory in March.

SAIC-GM-Wuling, a joint venture between two Chinese companies and General Motors, has pledged about 300 units produced at its electric vehicle plant which opened in Indonesia earlier this month.

Analysts say automakers hope to use the summit to announce their shift to electric vehicles. They add that the Indonesian government is also trying to turn the gathering into an opportunity to showcase the country’s decarbonization efforts.

Anton Jimmi Suwandy is the marketing director of Toyota Astra Motor, a joint venture between Toyota Motor and an Indonesian company. He said it was time to show vehicle electrification in Indonesia at the G20 summit.
