Toyota Innova Electric Has Appeared at IIMS, Government Wants to be Produced ASAP


Toyota gave a surprise by showing off the Innova EV Concept at the 2022 Indonesia International Motor Show, Thursday (31/3/2022). Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Airlangga Hartarto hopes that Toyota will soon produce Electric Innova.

Coordinating Minister Airlangga had time to try the Innova Concept EV in the IIMS 2022 test drive area, Thursday (31/3/2022). According to detikcom’s observations, when Airlangga started the car, the electric Innova, which was still a concept, was barely audible.

“From the calculation of the need per KwH compared to per liter, the cost is only 10 percent. So that there was an electric vehicle launching which is still a concept from the Toyota Kijang Innova, we hope it will be faster (produced),” said Airlangga at JIExpo Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, Thursday ( 31/3/2022).

Then what other brands will be produced locally? In addition to the Innova Concept EV, it is known that there are two Chinese manufacturers who are also exhibiting electric cars at IIMS 2022. Namely the Wuling GSEV which will be produced this year, and Chery EQ1 as a new brand. Next is the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai which introduced the Hyundai Ioniq 5.

“Because some time ago, Hyundai Ioniq has entered, and there will be one more manufacturer producing cars in September,” he added.

Toyota-Astra Motor (TAM) said the Kijang Innova BEV concept study car project aims to increase the capabilities of Indonesian engineers and develop national Human Resources (HR) capabilities in the electrification sector.

Toyota claims the Kijang Innova EV Concept is a car with a national brand that is the first to be designed entirely using electricity as a power source (power engine).

“Until now, the purpose of introducing the Kijang Innova EV Concept is to study and increase the popularity of electric vehicles in the community.”

“The Kijang Innova EV Concept is a symbol of Toyota’s commitment to the main ecosystem of electric vehicles, by utilizing the local model approach and electric vehicles to find out the most suitable mobility needs for the Indonesian people,” said Henry Tanoto, Vice President Director of PT Toyota-Astra Motor.
