“Later E01 will have fast charging for 1 full hour. (Charging) 1 hour will be cut off at 90 percent. But to prepare it, it also requires installation, so we are also trying to put it where, what will the charging look like, ” said Anton when met in Bogor, West Java, recently.
However, Anton did not specify the battery specifications used in the E01 and what type of charger was used. Anton also did not reveal details about specifications such as how long it takes the battery to use a regular charger.
“That’s what we want to explore, Indonesian consumers want what kind of EV. The E Vino has been seen with a battery swap system that can be replaced but the distance is short, but now it’s a medium one with a charging system,” he said.
“(Electric motorbikes) from 2017-2022 have developed very rapidly, now motorbikes are getting farther and the distances for cars are the same. If you look at which cars have changed batteries, all charging, the distance is far, and they want fast charging,” said Anton .
