SMOOT Smart Electric Motors have been TKDN certified at 47% and qualified for the Subsidy Program; Attracting thousands of registrants!

Indonesia, March 21, 2023, Indonesian Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs and Investment, Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, explained the guidelines for providing subsidies for Electric Motor Vehicles (KBL), which emphasise the importance of the Domestic Content Level (TKDN).


As of March 17, 2023, all variants of SMOOT smart electric motors have been certified for TKDN by the Ministry of Industry. The SMOOT Tempur Facelift has a TKDN of 47.61%, and the SMOOT Zuzu has a TKDN of 47.88%. With the subsidy program, the price of the SMOOT Tempur Facelift has changed from USD 1,200 to USD 750 (OTR JADETABEK), and the price of the SMOOT Zuzu has changed from USD 1,300 to USD 850 (OTR JADETABEK). SMOOT Motor now has thousands of interested registrants, including 200 other SMOOT Motor dealers across Indonesia. 



"The decision of Ministerial Regulation No. 6 of 2023 further strengthens public enthusiasm to switch to electric motorcycles, and we strongly support this program. SMOOT can be the best choice with various advantages offered to the community. It is proven that up until today, SMOOT itself has received thousands of registrants who want to participate in the electric motorcycle subsidy program. Customers also do not need to worry about after-sales service because of the high level of local components in SMOOT, which means that local spare parts and materials are already available here," said Irwan Tjahaja, CEO of Smoot Motor Indonesia.

For those seeking an electric motorcycle suitable for long-distance travel, SMOOT Motor is a recommended option. In partnership with SWAP Energy, Indonesia's largest battery swapping ecosystem provider, SMOOT Motor users have access to over 1,000 SWAP Station points located at popular stores such as Alfamidi, Alfamart, Dan+Dan, BP-AKR, Circle-K, Shell, Haus, and Martabak Pecenongan 78. This battery exchange system ensures SMOOT electric motorcycle users do not need to worry about running out of batteries while on the road. 



"Our goal is to establish over 10,000 Swap Stations in the near future. This expansion will enable SMOOT users to exchange their batteries easily and conveniently at any time and location, without any concerns," added Irwan.


SMOOT electric motorcycle users are also supported by the "SWAP" smart application, which serves as a platform for easy top-ups with OVO and GoPay. With a top-up system costing only USD 1 cent (IDR 160) per kilometre, SMOOT users can enjoy cost-effective transportation. Additionally, through the SWAP application, users can monitor and control the status of their motorcycle and battery remotely.


Given the numerous innovations and conveniences provided by both SMOOT and the government, the company is optimistic that more individuals will transition to electric vehicles for the collective benefit. #SolusiBukanPolusi.
