- Trends in Electric Motorized Vehicles Here’s the View of Leasing & Insurance Companies
Bisnis.com, JAKARTA — Indonesia will have a significant number of electric vehicles in the next 10 years. Chairman of the Association of Indonesian Financing Companies (APPI) Suwandi Wiratno also said that the trend of electric motorized vehicles would still experience growth going forward.

Furthermore, the potential for growth in the electricity market in 2035 for 2-wheeled cars is projected to be 12 million units and 1 million units for 4-wheeled vehicles.

Then China also recorded a growth of 113 percent, with BYD and Tesla as the most contributing brands.
