Yoshimura said Toyota globally has on offer electric vehicles in its portfolio. The carmaker has the technology to develop a product suited for the Indian market. However, if volumes remain low, the company may not be able to manufacture it locally and would have to import it into the country.
Japanese automaker Toyota Motor, which plans to introduce an electric vehicle in India with alliance partner Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC), said lack of adequate charging infrastructure in the country may dissuade potential buyers of battery operated cars.

In India, Toyota operates in a joint venture with the Kirloskar Group.
“It is still on. BEV (battery electric vehicle) is always the tough one. We can put on the market, but perhaps buyers will not come due to the lack of charging infrastructure. There are no charging stations,” said Toyota Kirloskar Motor managing director Masakazu Yoshimura, adding the company can explore deploying the vehicle for demonstration in smart cities.

Yoshimura said Toyota globally has on offer electric vehicles in its portfolio. The carmaker has the technology to develop a product suited for the Indian market. However, if volumes remain low, the company may not be able to manufacture it locally and would have to import it into the country.

“BEVs are running in China, Japan. So we can produce, we can make it different sizes and all. But again, if we bring BEV, we have to import. If volumes become larger, consumers accept BEV, then perhaps feasible demand will be created that can be sustainable for more local production. (But) Plan is still the same,” he said.
Indonesia to create firm to build up electric vehicle battery industry
Indonesia, the world’s biggest producer of nickel ore, a key component of EV batteries, wants to build an integrated EV industry that will eventually include building the vehicles.
A group of Indonesian state-owned companies will form a venture to make batteries to power electric vehicles, the Mining Industry Indonesia (MIND ID) chief executive said on Tuesday.

Indonesia, the world’s biggest producer of nickel ore, a key component of EV batteries, wants to build an integrated EV industry that will eventually include building the vehicles.

The new venture, called Indonesia Battery Holding, would be formed by state miners MIND ID and Aneka Tambang (ANTAM), state utility Perusahan Listrik Negara (PLN) and state oil company Pertamina, MIND ID Chief Executive Orias Petrus Moedak said.
“We are preparing a concrete cooperation plan, so that the nickel utilisation project can start immediately, to produce batteries,” he told a webinar.

The company would help build an industry that aimed to cover everything from producing chemicals and minerals for batteries to making the units themselves, as well as recycling old batteries, Orias said.
