Kijang Innova EV Concept di IIMS Hybrid 2022 - Five Japanese brand holder agents (APM) Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan, Fuso, Isuzu, and Toyota have started to operate an electric vehicle ecosystem pilot project in Bali. This project involves various types of vehicles ranging from the passenger vehicle segment to the commercial vehicle segment.

"We gathered to formalize the agreement in common commitment, not only to provide the best products and services for the people of Indonesia, but also target to achieve environmental sustainability," said President Director of PT. Mitsubishi Motors Krama Yudha Sales Indonesia Naoya Nakamura in Nusa Dua, Bali, Wednesday, July 27, 2022.

The project titled EV Smart Mobility - Joint Project is also a form of support for the government's program to reduce carbon emissions. The presence of the EV Smart Mobility – Joint Project is expected to help the public see and experience firsthand how the electrified vehicle ecosystem works.

Through a Multi-Pathway approach, this project can provide understanding to the community and accelerate the presence of various environmentally friendly technologies that are easily accessible to the public. Meanwhile, Bali is chosen as the location for the first project to develop an electrification ecosystem to support eco-tourism in the Bali region which is the direction of the national tourism sector development in the future. Besides that, it is also an effort to contribute to the implementation of Indonesia's G20 Presidency.

"Bali has been and has always been a popular Indonesian tourist destination from both local and global communities. With steps to revitalize tourism affected by the pandemic, it is a good opportunity to support revitalization by socializing the electric vehicle ecosystem here," added Nakamura.
