For the owner, it is sufficient to provide funds of IDR 1,298 million consisting of the cost of spare parts and chemical liquids of IDR 658 thousand and service fees of IDR 640 thousand. This fund is issued every periodic maintenance at a distance of 10,000 km, 30,000 km, 50,000 km, 70,000 km and 90,000 kilometers.

Then on the 20,000 kilometer odometer note, the owner prepared a fund of IDR 1,289 million. This consists of part and chemical costs of Rp. 526 thousand and services of Rp. 763 thousand.

Proceed to the calculation of funds at a distance of 40,000 and 80,000 kilometers. Both have the same amount of maintenance funds, which is Rp. 2,047 million. This consists of the cost of spare parts and chemical liquids of Rp. 1,063 million and service fees of Rp. 984 thousand.

Using 'Hybrid' Technology, This is Yamaha Fazzio's Fuel Consumption

 After the Yamaha Fazzio was officially launched some time ago, finally coilOTO got the opportunity to try out the retro-style scooter firsthand.

Using Yamaha's new technology, Blue Core Hybrid, we are looking to find out the effect of this technology on fuel consumption.

Through a media test ride held by PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM) together with other media partners in Bogor (3/2), the total route taken is about 20 km.

Before starting the trip, we first tried to 

connect our device with the Y-Connect feature in this Yamaha Fazzio and reset the trip meter to zero.

Considering the meter cluster, the Yamaha Fazzio is not equipped with instructions for real-time average fuel consumption information.

OK, after confirming that we are connected to the Y-Connect system, we started our journey from The Bucket List Kitchen to go around the streets of Bogor.

Oh yes, just for information, our driver is 174 cm tall and weighs 65 kg. For maximum results, we activate the Start Stop System feature.

Not yet one kilometer, we have been treated to a road with downhill conditions and then straight uphill. Of course, going through the incline requires a larger gas opening.

After that we started to enter the city streets, a perfect simulation to describe how this Fazzio is driven in the city.

Even though the majority of the roads we pass are paved, we can't say that they are always smooth and flat, besides that, we are often faced with congested road conditions and stop and go conditions. The Start Stop System feature is also active when we stop in a red light situation.

Our impression is that the power produced by the 125 cc engine is quite responsive for city use, there are no 'slow' symptoms when you need more power when you want to catch up with other groups.

We don't always drive in economy mode, occasionally if we encounter a rather long straight road, we don't hesitate to open the gas casing excessively. The highest speed we can achieve is around 60 kph.

After almost an hour of driving, we finally returned to the starting point of the trip. Then we saw the trip meter which showed the number 19.9 km, which means our total trip almost touched 20 km.

Enough routes to describe everyday use. Well, then how about the results of fuel consumption?

We opened the Y-Connect app on our connected device, where it displayed the figure of 59.8 km per liter. However, strangely, the application recorded that the route we took was only 15 km.

Is the Yamaha Fazzio Hybrid Gasoline Consumption Really Efficient? These are the daily test results

 Is the Yamaha Fazzio Hybrid gasoline consumption really economical? These are the results of our tests carried out under various conditions.

In terms of the engine, this Fazzio can indeed be said to have used Yamaha's latest generation 125 cc Blue Core kitchen

Because according to the manufacturer's technical team, only the cylinder head and block were taken from the Yamaha FreeGo and the crankcase to the rear was totally new.

From the CVT transmission section, its size is now more compact with a shorter v-belt combined with a heavier roller than the FreeGo.

The effect is that when the engine is gassed, the engine does not scream immediately but rises slowly, then the speed increases in rhythm with the increase in engine speed.

The combination of an engine that is not easy to "scream" plus hybrid technology at low speeds and a powerful heavy roller makes Fazzio efficient in fuel consumption.

Moreover, there is an SSS (Stop & Start System) feature that automatically turns off the engine if it stops for more than 5 seconds.

Using Pertamax fuel and used for daily use with various road conditions, the average gasoline consumption can penetrate 51.6 km / liter! It's very irritating!

TVS Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart Officially Released, Has Voice Assist Feature

 TVS Motor Company Indonesia released the Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart at the Jakarta Fair or Jakarta Fair 2022. This new unit carries advanced technology that combines three unique elements.

“We are pleased to introduce the TVS Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart to the Indonesian market. Comes armed with a variety of special features in the scooter segment class. Equipped with a driving style control system, it provides perfect and powerful performance, as well as responsive acceleration," said J Thangarajan, President Director, PT TVS Motor Company Indonesia.

TVS Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart Officially Released, Has Voice Assist Feature

Many things have been developed in Ntorq 125 Race XP. In addition to the latest technology called TVS SmartXonnect, there is also a drive system update on its CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) transmission, so that the driving style can be adjusted in several levels (ride mode) and is supported by a light weight.

There are two driving modes, Racing and Street. Each is distinguished in terms of performance and fuel consumption. The Racing option is aimed at riders who like speed. Medium Street for everyday driving, which allows the use of fuel more efficient and perfect. The driving mode can be changed using the switch function on the right side of the handlebar which is attached to the starter button.

Armed with a 124.6cc mechanical heart, single cylinder, 3 valve and air cooled, it is able to produce the best performance in its class. In Racing mode, the power reaches 10 hp at 7,000 rpm and a torque of 10.8 Nm at 5,500 rpm. The top speed is 98 km/hour. Meanwhile, Street mode conditions are the same as the regular version of the TVS Ntorq, which produces 9.3 HP of power at 7,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 10.5 Nm at 5,500 rpm. Top speed that can be achieved is 95 km / h.

Connectivity is provided by the TVS SmartXconnect application which can be downloaded via the Google play store or App store. In it allows the user to set the desired 60 features.

Another advanced feature is the voice command technology (voice assist). Allows consumers to interact with Ntorq via voice commands. All of that is available in the TVS SmartXonnect app via a connected device such as Bluetooth headphones, wired headphones or a Bluetooth-enabled and connected helmet. The scooter's response to consumers is seen on the speedometer and as audio feedback via headphones.

In driving mode operation can also be done using voice commands. But the condition is that the speed must be less than 5 km / h for safety reasons. In addition, the driving mode can also be changed using the features on the indicator panel or dashboard with the help of the application.

The design is no different from the standard version. The body is still inspired by the stealth aircraft model. There is a firm pull on each side of the panel. The turn signal is located on the handlebar cover, as if to form a pair of animal eyes. While the main light occupies the very bottom of the shield. Then at the stern, there is a grille that inhabits the bottom of the stop lamp. Equipped with a stocky exhaust design, flat and textured floorboard, and diamond cut racing wheels.

Under the seat there is a 20 liter trunk. To make it easier for users, the gas tank is behind the stop lamp. The capacity is quite large, 5 liters. So no need to open the seat when filling fuel, because the position of the lid is at the very back of the motorbike. It is this characteristic that distinguishes TVS products from other factory-made scooters.

The difference between the Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart and the regular variant is only in appearance. He comes with sporty graphics that reflect an aggressive style. Combined with a headlamp that has embedded Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) such as the letter 'T' and a stop lamp with LED technology. And red rims.

Talking about the price, the TVS Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart is sold at a price of Rp. 21 million. However, consumers can get attractive offers during the Jakarta Fair 2022 with a price tag of Rp. 19.9 million OTR Jakarta.

All New Honda Civic e:HEV Officially Launched in Thailand

 Honda is going faster in its target of bringing a variety of environmentally friendly technologies to its products. Recently, Honda Automobile Thailand Co., Ltd officially introduced the All New Honda Civic version e: HEV for the first time in a world premiere. Honda offers its legendary sedan in two variants, namely e:HEV RS and e:HEV EL.

All New Honda Civic e:HEV Officially Launched in Thailand

The All New Honda Civic e: HEV uses the e: HEV full hybrid system technology. This technology combines two electric motors, namely a motor generator and motor drive as well as a 2.0 liter DOHC Direct Injection Atkinson Cycle engine. Quite an interesting choice even though Honda has a turbo engine version which is also popular.

For driving sensation, the driver can choose the three modes offered, namely EV Drive Mode, Hybrid Drive Mode and Engine Drive Mode according to their wishes. Honda also still offers three distinctive driving modes on its products, namely ECON, Normal and Sport.

Noriyuki Takakura, President and CEO of Honda Automobile Thailand Co., Ltd. said that after being shown for the first time at the Motor Show in Thailand some time ago, the Civic e: HEV sedan has received an extraordinary response from the public within two and a half months. This has become a trigger for enthusiasm among consumers in the e:HEV line from Honda.

Civic e HEV

“E-line; This HEV from Honda uses a full-hybrid system that provides powerful driving performance while also producing excellent fuel consumption. In addition, this is also a response to Honda's 2050 target where we have the initiative to achieve carbon neutrality and also an accident-free society with the presence of Honda Sensing. We also believe that the All New Honda Civic e: HEV can further strengthen the Honda Civic line in order to maintain its position in the compact car market.” Takakura said in his statement, Friday (17/6/2022).

On paper, the 1,993 cc 16 valve DOHC engine produces 141 ps of power at 6,000 rpm and 182 Nm of torque at 4,500 rpm. The electric motor produces 184 ps of power at 5000-6000 rpm and up to 315 Nm of torque at 0 to 2000 rpm. Some of the additional technologies in this sedan include Honda Sensing, Honda Smart Key System with Honda Smart Key Card, Remote Engine Start, 10.2-inch TFT MID screen, 9-inch head unit screen connected to Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

Dimensionally there is no difference with conventional engine variants. The Honda Civic E:HEV offers a length of 4.6 meters, a width of 1.8 meters and a height of 1.4 meters with a wheelbase of 2.7 meters. It's the weight that has a difference. The conventional engine variant weighs 1.3 tons and the hybrid version weighs 1.4 tons.

The All New Honda Civic e: HEV variant is targeted to sell 8,300 units per year when it begins to be mass marketed in the future. In addition, Honda also provides a ten-year warranty for the lithium-ion hybrid battery and a five-year warranty for the hybrid mileage system.

So what are the chances of this product being present in Indonesia? The possibility is quite wide open because the Civic products offered in the country also come from Thailand. However, this sales decision depends on the assessment of PT Honda Prospect Motor (HPM) to see the hybrid sedan market which is currently dominated by Toyota products. Regarding the price, the e:HEV EL+ variant is offered at 1.129 million Baht or around Rp. 440 million. The top model, the e:HEV RS, is offered at a price of 1.259 million Baht or around Rp. 531 million. Currently in Indonesia, only one Civic variant is offered, namely the All New Civic RS at a price of Rp. 584.9 million. This means that there is still a price gap that Honda Indonesia can work on to bring sedans with environmentally friendly technology into the country.

Hyundai Shows Stargazer Photo Cuts on Social Media

 Hyundai Motor Indonesia (HMID) today surprised the public by presenting a sneak peek of the future low MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle), Stargazer. A total of three leaked images are shown related to its future products.

“Step into the future with a dream look is the dream of many people. Look forward to innovative designs to support your journey to various destinations. Hyundai Stargazer coming soon!” write a photo description on the upload on the hyundaimotorindonesia Instagram account, Friday (17/6/2022).

Hyundai Shows Stargazer Photo Cuts on Social Media

Talking about this latest image, Hyundai displays the front, back and a little side for its newest product. Actually, this view is not much different from some of the leaks that have been broadcast and obtained by

The front view is reminiscent of the shape of the Hyundai Staria. The LED lights that extend from left to right are the hallmark of Hyundai's future low MPV design. The similarity of this design is also present in the headlamp which is also slightly downwards, right on the front bumper.

In the leaked rear image, Hyundai shows a futuristic elongated stop lamp design. There is no combination thick line, only a firm line that also extends from right to left of the entire back door.

As for the side is still a mystery. Hyundai only shows the front side which shows the typical dynamic rim design that is also used on the Staria.

The presence of this leaked image makes a clear marker for the presence of the low MPV from Hyundai. Finally, the information obtained is the certainty of the name Stargazer on the product. This is known from the filing of a trade name in November 2020 with the number DID2020072199 and registered with the Directorate General of Intellectual Property of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. Documents registered by Hyundai Motor Company.

The latest, through the DKI Jakarta Samsat page, it is known NJKB and the variants that will be embedded in the Stargazer. The nomenclature of the variants resembles the naming on the Hyundai Creta model.

Based on the DKI Jakarta Samsat list, there is a Stargazer code ACT15 4x2A with an NJKB of Rp. 164 million. If you look at the code, it is likely the Active variant with a 1.5L 4x2 drive engine and automatic transmission.

Continue to code Stargazer ACT 15 4x2M with an NJKB of Rp. 155 million. Next up is the Stargazer PRM 15 4x2A with an NJKB value of Rp. 202 million, the Stargazer STY15 4x2 A with an NJKB of Rp. 189 million. There are still Stargazer TRN 15 4x2A with an NJKB value of Rp. 176 million and Stargazer TRN15 4x2 M with an NJKB value of Rp. 167 million.

Possible PRM codes for Prime, STY for Style and TRN for Trend. Same as given to Creta.

Another interesting piece of information is that Stargazer's NJKB is still lower than Creta's. The Creta SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) has an NJKB with amounts ranging from Rp. 193 million to Rp. 254 million. It could be that the price offered to Stargazer will be in the range of Rp. 200 million to Rp. 250 million.

Preparations to present the Stargazer are still being carried out by Hyundai. The team also had time to find a vehicle that might be a Stargazer being tested amidst the density of the Cipali Toll Road at KM 207 some time ago. Although covered with camouflage stickers, the vehicle's figure shows several parts that characterize Hyundai products. Like the LED stop lamp with a vertical design, the wide rear windshield ensures a spacious cabin for the LMPV segment. The headlights feature four-point LEDs, with the side shape reminiscent of the Staria MPV.

Regarding the engine, looking at the NJKB information above, it's probably still using the same engine as the Creta. This engine produces 115 PS of power and 144 Nm of torque.

So when is the official presence of this new product? It is likely to be present at the auto show in August 2022.

Is this the form of the Hyundai Stargazer that is ready to fight the Avanza, Xenia, Xpander and Ertiga?

 Hyundai has officially shown a leak of the future Stargazer low MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) product. This was done through their social media, Friday (6/17/2022) which showed various sides, starting from the LED in front, the stop lamp at the back and a little on the front side of the latest model.

“Step into the future with a dream look is the dream of many people. Look forward to innovative designs to support your journey to various destinations. Hyundai Stargazer coming soon!” write a photo description on the upload on the hyundaimotorindonesia Instagram account.

Speaking of design, Hyundai emphasizes the image of being innovative, classy, attention-seeking, unique, expressive, dynamic, and stunning. This design language was actually also encountered when Staria's large MPV appeared some time ago. Of course, at first glance, this leak is no different from the information that has been encountered on several occasions, that this low MPV was inspired by the shape and design of the premium MPV.

Looking at some of the design directions shown, we try to guess what the full form of the Stargazer will look like. Through digital engineering, the Stargazer display looks uniquely challenging to a class that is already crowded with the All New Avanza and Xenia as well as the New Xpander and All New Ertiga Hybrid.

Is this the form of the Hyundai Stargazer that is ready to fight the Avanza, Xenia, Xpander and Ertiga?

In our view, the front display clearly takes the design language from Staria. Comes with an LED welcoming light that extends from one side to the other, the design language of the front Stargazer is like a mini version of the Stargazer. The placement of the headlamp which is expected to use the LED feature is also similar, which is slightly below right on the front bumper. Strict grille lines with the possibility of a touch of parametric jewel are also found in this low MPV.

The use of LEDs is also shown in today's leaked images. Firm lines without any combination frills, make the back of the Stargazer appear simple, of course with a modern touch. The legs have also been leaked by Hyundai with the use of fan blade-style rims and a two-tone display. Will it be used in the original version? We'll just have to wait for it to arrive.

We try to see that the side of this latest low MPV will not be different from the low MPV design which is also inspired by the toughness of an SUV. This is shown by the design of the side that seems muscular with firm lines that show a fairly high ground clearance. Do not forget there is a body cladding that adds to the impression of a vehicle that is able to pass through various conditions.

The windshield area is made quite large and slopes for a better aerodynamic impression. The side glass is quite wide which is also present up to the third row. Whatever the final form of the Stargazer will be, of course the people of the country will be waiting for it. This is because the preparations made by Hyundai have been long enough to present the typical product of the Indonesian market.

Several times, automotive enthusiasts have encountered this product on the streets while being tested. The question of when this low MPV Stargazer product will be available, PT Hyundai Motor Indonesia (HMID) has denied with the answer, "Wait a minute". At least the certainty of the product's presence will be answered in a moment with the presence of these leaked images.

Judging from the various information that was present, Stargazer has been able to smell its presence since the submission of a trade name in November 2020 with the number DID2020072199 and registered with the Directorate General of Intellectual Property of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. Documents registered by Hyundai Motor Company.

The latest, through the DKI Jakarta Samsat page, it is known NJKB and the variants that will be embedded in the Stargazer. The nomenclature of the variants resembles that of the Cretan model. Hyundai uses the codenaming Stargazer ACT15 4x2A with an NJKB of IDR 164 million. If you look at the code, it is likely the Active variant with a 1.5L 4x2 drive engine and automatic transmission.

The list also included the naming of Stargazer ACT 15 4x2M with an NJKB of Rp. 155 million. Next up is the Stargazer PRM 15 4x2A with an NJKB value of Rp. 202 million, the Stargazer STY15 4x2 A with an NJKB of Rp. 189 million. There are still Stargazer TRN 15 4x2A with an NJKB value of Rp. 176 million and Stargazer TRN15 4x2 M with an NJKB value of Rp. 167 million. Possible PRM codes for Prime, STY for Style and TRN for Trend.

Another interesting piece of information is that Stargazer's NJKB is still lower than Creta's. The Creta SUV has an NJKB with amounts ranging from Rp. 193 million to Rp. 254 million. It could be that the price offered to Stargazer will be in the range of Rp. 200 million to Rp. 250 million. Regarding the engine, looking at the NJKB information above, it's probably still using the same engine as the Creta. This engine produces 115 PS of power and 144 Nm of torque.

Can't wait for the presence of the Hyundai Stargazer? The public is expected to be patient, because this product is likely to be officially present at the automotive exhibition in August.

The Electric-Powered Vespa 50 Special Appears at Milan Design Week 2022

 The Vespa 50 Special, a special edition like never before, was revealed at Milan Design Week 2022. The unit, called the Vespa 50 Special-e, was born from a concept designed by Garage Italia. So this is not a mass product, but an innovation. Interestingly, the conventional powertrain was removed and replaced with electric power.

With a contrasting ivory white color, this Vespa is the creation of Lapo Elkann and Sergio Esposito. Lapo's custom workshop has been around since 2015. He does a lot of restomod work, but so far he's only focused on cars. Lapo is a member of the Agnelli family, grandson of former Fiat chairman Gianni Agnelli. His brother John Elkann is the boss of Ferrari, Stellantis and CEO of Exor, the parent company of the two automakers.

The Electric-Powered Vespa 50 Special Appears at Milan Design Week 2022

The headquarters of Garage Italia is located in the Piazzale Accursio in Milan, where the debut took place. Meanwhile, the Vespa 50 Special-e represents Garage Italia's first entry into the world of two wheels. The unit took the stage alongside the Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto Hybrid which also debuted at Milan Design Week.

The reason they made this electric-powered Vespa was for one thing, namely the latest entry in the Italian ICON-E Garage series which turns the classic Italian design into an electric version. The point is of course, their work will become a Vespa design icon. Previous projects in the ICON-E series include the Fiat 500 Jolly and the Fiat Panda Integral-e.

“I am very happy to present Garage Italia Customs Special-e because for me the Vespa is not just an icon of style and design. In fact, I am very attached to Piaggio by a deep affection because my cousin Giovanni Alberto Agnelli was the President of the company in the 1990s. It is to him that I dedicate this latest creation of Garage Italia,” said Lapo Elkann.

According to the CEO of Garage Italia, Sergio Esposito this work is not a demonstration vehicle and is not a one-off version. He said that this unit will soon be available for pre-order through the official Garage Italia channel.

“Our Vespa 50 Special-e is dedicated straight to the hearts of Italian turtleneck lovers, through continuous design with great success. Vespa amplifies its storytelling even more, and presents itself in summer with our freshness, color and all-Italian touch. The Vespa 50 Special-e can be ordered directly through the official Garage Italia Customs channel," said Sergio Esposito.

The Vespa 50 Special-e from Garage Italia is painted in a contrasting ivory white color. Various details still survive with the original form. But of course with a new touch from the cold hands of Lapo and Sergio. Front and rear luggage racks are added, but in an optional package. The short-stemmed mirrors have rectangular dials reminiscent of the shape of headlights. Of the many changes, the single seat model is his trademark. Packed with innovative techniques. Use leather material with diamond texture.

Not much information is available about the electric powertrain involved. But the electrification kit replaces the gasoline combustion engine in the side compartment. With a power of 7kW and the range is said to be around 100 kilometers on a single charge. If the performance created is that big, it means that it is superior to the latest technology on the market today

Similar to Fadel, Albert is a a private employee who uses the Yamaha Fazzio NEO Black for his daily work, he chose to modify his motorbike with a neo retro concept, which still prioritizes comfort when driving on the road.

Albert changed the appearance of his Fazzio Neo Black to a more luxurious Italian style.

Indent Yamaha Fazzio Hybrid up to 3 Months

 Consumers have to be patient to ask for a new motorbike from Yamaha, namely Fazzio. Because Fazzio's scooter pivot is up to three months.

A number of employees of Yamaha dealerships in South Jakarta and Depok, West Java who were met by CNNIndonesia admitted that this condition had occurred since the motorcycle was first launched in January 2022.

Pemintaan Yamaha Fazzio membeludak membuat masa inden hingga 3 bulan.

"For now, the goods are not ready, so there is an estimated three-month pivot," said a Yamaha dealer salesperson in South Jakarta, Thursday (21/4).

A salesperson at a different dealer who asked not to be named also mentioned a similar problem. He said that Fazzio's fans were quite high, so the pivot was snaking. Prospective consumers also have to place an order in advance to avoid a longer indent.

"For example, if it's from color. For example, the buyer wants red, but later if the item is not ready in the middle of the pivot period, we will let you know the item is not available. If you still want red, the wait will be longer. If you want it, then continue," he said.

He suspects Fazzio's high demand is not accompanied by an increase in Yamaha Fazzio's production.

Social media groups have pretty much discussed Fazzio's pivot period. A number of netizens complained that their orders did not come and were asked to be patient by Yamaha salespeople.

A number of Yamaha Indonesia officials who were contacted for information on the scarcity of Fazzio at the dealer have so far not provided information.

Production disrupted due to semiconductor chips

Yamaha had complained about the lack of supply of semiconductor chips which disrupted the production of Yamaha motorcycles in Indonesia.

"That (chip crisis) has an effect, especially for motorbikes that use semiconductors. Last year it felt really bad, we had some products with shortages, we couldn't meet consumer needs," said Public Relations Manager, YRA & Community PT Yamaha Indonesia. Motor Manufacturing (YIMM) Antonius Widiantoro quotes detik.

At that time, Anton did not explain Fazzio's status as he was affected by a shortage of component supplies. However, this Fazzio Hybrid is one of the products that uses semiconductors.

On the other hand, Fazzio said that YIMM Technical & Education Aji Handoko could be a signal for the recovery of semiconductor supply. Because the product was launched when the crisis problem began to be resolved even though it was not normal. 

On the other hand, Fazzio said that YIMM Technical & Education Aji Handoko could be a signal for the recovery of semiconductor supply. Because the product was launched when the crisis problem began to be resolved even though it was not normal.

MINI Talks About Electrification and Semiconductor Scarcity

 Electric vehicles are the path chosen by Indonesia to achieve its emission reduction target. Various parties have supported the road chosen by the government, one of which is Mini Indonesia. The latest, Mini brought pure electric products in the Mini Electric some time ago.

Head of Mini Asia, Kidd Yam revealed, the presence of Mini Electric in Indonesia is one of Mini's preparations to welcome the era of electrification. Mini, which is under the BMW Group, has targeted to sell its entire product line with electric technology by 2030. Not to forget, all preparations for the electrification era have begun, including in Indonesia.

MINI Talks About Electrification and Semiconductor Scarcity

"Starting 2030 all Mini products will be fully electric, no conventional engines. We also do not glance at the hybrid. All readiness has been confirmed, and we will see what kind of response, and what is needed. We also learn what customers need and we will continue to improve it,” said Kidd when met on the sidelines of the Mini Electric launch some time ago.

Kidd added, for model shifts, consumers in the premium car segment seem to be quicker to adapt. This is because of the courage and desire of Mini consumers to experience and try new technologies.

“In addition, many consumers in the premium segment tend to think that electric vehicles can be an interesting option to try. Because on the other hand, electric vehicles have several advantages, such as being free of odd-even. Consumers in this segment also have more than one vehicle," said Kidd.

Jodie O'Tania, Director of Communications for the BMW Group also said that Mini is currently preparing for its electric charging infrastructure and sales network. Preparations for human resources were also made to welcome consumers who have electric vehicles.

Especially for the new Mini Electric model, Mini Indonesia also provides support for ease of ownership. One of them is by installing Wallbox Charging for every Mini Electric purchase.

"So the purchase of Mini Electric includes Wallbox Charging Mini and installation. Later we will survey first, whether the electrical power at home is appropriate. We will adjust to each customer. In addition, gradually, we will also cooperate with dealers and several places, such as shopping malls, to provide electricity charging stations," said Jodie.

Semiconductor Chip Crisis

Mini and BMW in Indonesia are also inseparable from global conditions, namely the scarcity of semiconductor chips. A number of vehicles offered by the BMW Group in Indonesia are reportedly affected by the scarcity of these chip components.

Jodie even revealed, due to this global problem, his party was forced to cut some of the features offered on the vehicle. Although it is not clear what features will be sacrificed. 

“So, there are features that have to be removed due to chip problems. But the feature is not essential, but like an additional feature," said Jodie.

The scarcity of these chips also has an impact on production and makes consumer waiting times lengthen. Reportedly, several models have completely build up (CBU) status, aka imports, the indent time becomes longer.

“Several models, especially the CBU, were affected and pivoted. For the Indonesian model (CKD) there are some but not significant. Some Mini models, the indent can be one year," said Jodie.

Mini Electric is offered in two variants, namely Mini Electric and Mini Electric Collection, which are available in limited quantities. Mini Indonesia offers Electric Collection at Rp.955 million and Mini Electric at Rp.945 million, all off the road. This price also includes Mini wallbox, cable for charging in public places, travel charger and installation fee

About the price of the battery and maintenance costs for the Ertiga Hybrid, this is what Suzuki says

 The All New Ertiga Hybrid is the latest Suzuki model offered in Indonesia. The update on the low multi-purpose vehicle product is quite interesting because it includes mild hybrid technology to help make fuel consumption more efficient.

Attention then focused on the two accompanying technologies. This latest Ertiga Hybrid relies on two main components, namely the integrated starter generator (ISG) and the battery. So what about the availability of spare parts for both, for example, there are consumers who have problems.

About the price of the battery and maintenance costs for the Ertiga Hybrid, this is what Suzuki says

This question was answered by Christiana Yuantie, Spareparts Dept. Head of PT Suzuki Indomobil Sales (SIS). Suzuki has guaranteed the availability of Ertiga Hybrid batteries and spare parts for better ownership comfort.

“This vehicle uses two types of batteries, acid and lithium. The price is Rp. 15 million for lithium and Rp. 3.6 million for acid," said Christina on the sidelines of the launch of the All New Ertiga Hybrid.

Suzuki itself is currently still bringing its newest product battery completely from abroad. The plan, Suzuki will localize the battery components so that the price can be reduced cheaper. Suzuki itself has claimed that the All New Ertiga Hybrid has a local content level of more than 80 percent.

"For now, we are in the process of producing domestically. The components supplied are also being worked out and efforts are made to be localized," said Donny Saputra, 4W Marketing Director of PT SIS at the same time.

Donny also explained that his party already has partners who intend to invest in the production of electric vehicle batteries in Indonesia. This investment is expected to be used to supply the main vehicle components. It is hoped that this production can be realized in 2024 or even sooner. Suzuki himself is still keeping his mouth shut about who will be his partner.

Interestingly, Suzuki has prepared steps to become the export base for the All New Ertiga Hybrid to several countries in the world. Donny explained that there will be 12 countries in various regions that are ready to receive products from the Suzuki factory in Cikarang.

"This year we will export to 12 countries in Southeast Asia, Latin America, the Pacific Islands and the Caribbean. We hope that this number will increase in line with the increasing demand,” said Donny.

So what about the maintenance of this latest Suzuki model? The All New Ertiga Hybrid is said to be an electrification product at an affordable price, of course it needs special attention to maintain this technology.

Joshi Prasetya, Strategic Planning Dept. Head of PT SIS on different occasions revealed that the maintenance of the All New Ertiga Hybrid remains the same as the conventional model. This is because the included technology does not jump too far compared to conventional models and can be understood and felt by consumers easily, including the matter of an affordable purchase price.

"We also include a warranty for the battery up to 5 years or 100,000 kilometers. So there are no additional costs, we also don't want to sell a product and then make the price higher or the maintenance costs big," said Joshi.

Joshi also explained about the battery, every periodic service there will be a separate check and become a parameter for the life cycle of battery components. If it is judged to have decreased and is affecting performance, or an error or abnormality is found, it is recommended to replace it because the hybrid function will be disrupted. However, consumers are expected not to worry, Suzuki with a guarantee of up to five years guarantees the availability of battery replacement.

The All New Ertiga Hybrid is actually not the first time using this technology. Several years ago, Suzuki also presented the Ertiga diesel hybrid which was later discontinued. Technologically, these two products are the same but the All New Ertiga Hybrid has a newer and more sophisticated generation.

The All New Ertiga Hybrid comes in two variants. The SS Hybrid AT variant is priced at IDR 292.3 million, the SS Hybrid MT at IDR 281.3 million. There is still a variant of the GX Hybrid AT which is priced at IDR 281.3 million and the GX Hybrid MT at a price of IDR 270.3 million. Suzuki still offers the non-hybrid Ertiga in the GL and GA variants. The GA MT variant as the cheapest comes with a price of IDR 225.1 million. The GL MT variant is priced at IDR 248.5 million and the GL AT at IDR 259.5 million.

Tips for Caring for a Toyota Euro 4 Diesel Engine Car

 Since April 2022, Toyota has marketed all diesel-engined cars with Euro4 emission standards. The engine is equipped with a variable turbo, common-rail and intercooler which makes the car a lot of torque and most importantly is environmentally friendly. With a number of advanced features, users or vehicle owners must pay attention to how to care for the Toyota Euro4 diesel car engine.

“All new Toyota cars with diesel engines marketed by Auto2000 have met the Euro4 emission standards set by the government. However, in order to stay in prime condition, users must follow the recommendations of the vehicle manual and have regular periodic servicing at the Auto2000 workshop," said Nur Imansyah Tara, Aftersales Business Division Head of Auto2000.

Tips for Caring for a Toyota Euro 4 Diesel Engine Car

In detail Auto2000 provides tips about modern diesel engine maintenance as follows:

Use the Right Fuel

The first tip that must be carried out by vehicle owners is the use of appropriate fuel. Improper fuel will have a big negative impact on the vehicle. High sulfur content can disrupt the fuel distribution system, decrease engine performance, and reduce engine life. The cetane level must also match the needs of the engine in order to deliver the best power. Adjust the fuel used with the recommendations in the Toyota vehicle manual. 

Check Solar Filter

The diesel filter or diesel fuel filter is responsible for ensuring that dirt does not enter the injection system. Vehicle owners can find out the condition of a dirty filter through the instrument panel. If the instrument panel light is on, don't delay and replace it with a new diesel filter immediately.

Clean Air Filter

The job of the air filter is to filter the air that enters the combustion chamber. Clean air can make engine performance maintained and use fuel more efficiently. Therefore, you are asked to clean it regularly to anticipate the formation of scale on the components and reduce the risk of clogged dirt.

Pay attention to water sediments

The water sedimenter functions to catch the water content in the fuel line, so it doesn't flow into the engine so it doesn't interfere with engine performance and prevents the risk of rusting. Immediately drain the water sedimenter when the water sedimenter indicator light on the instrument panel lights up because the water is full.

Warm up the engine before running and wait a moment before turning it off

Before traveling, the driver is asked to warm up the engine for about one minute to ensure that the lubricant spreads to all engine components. Then before turning off, the car is also advised to stay on for one minute to cool the working engine components.

Change Engine Oil

Check the engine oil level via the dipstick to make sure it doesn't decrease. Change the diesel engine oil every 6 months, so that the oil condition is always maintained. Make sure to use TMO diesel engine oil to match the specifications of Toyota cars circulating in Indonesia.

Mitsubishi Registers Xpander Cross Facelift Patent Design

 The patent design at the Ministry of Law and Human Rights displays the Mitsubishi Xpander Cross with application number A00202104139. It is common for manufacturers before releasing a new product to register the design first. Just to refresh the memory. PT Mitsubishi Motors Krama Yudha Sales Indonesia (PT MMKSI) released a new variant with a CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) transmission in November and announced prices in mid-December 2021.

Mitsubishi Registers Xpander Cross Facelift Patent Design

Usually a light refresh (facelift) of a car is carried out every two years. Maybe next year will be an important moment for this Japanese manufacturer to launch a new version of his low SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle). Let's take a closer look at the design of the Mitsubishi Xpander Cross.

When viewed from the patent drawings, the shape of the design looks familiar. Similar to the current regular Xpander body line. The shape of the grille looks more advanced, maybe it will be plated with black chromium. The top uses a horizontal bar. The bumper seems to blend with the front grille. The sculptural plot remains in the style of Mitsubishi's signature Dynamic Shield design. Then the Xpander Cross will have a new lamp housing like the letter T sleep. Manufacturers call them T-shaped headlights. So that the composition becomes more dense and sporty. Then the fog lamps are integrated with the front bumper protector.

When you look from the side, the waistline from the front door to the rear end remains the same. To emphasize the robustness of a typical SUV, Mitsubishi coated the body with over fenders and body molding. It could be that the dual tone rim pattern also changes, in order to hoist the appearance to make it more beautiful. The size is believed to remain the same, namely 17 inches.

Turning to the rear, the main attraction also comes from the taillight housing. Slightly different, using a curved letter L. Then the LED luminescence pattern was made even better. Then underneath, you'll find a pair of vertical reflectors on either side. Then the shape of the rear door is similar to the Mitsubishi Xpander facelift 2022. The location of the trapezoidal number plate and bumper also stands out.

There have been no leaks of the interior design. However, because it is only a refresher, the cabin arrangement is predicted not to differ much from the existing model in the country. Likewise with the use of machines.

The Xpander Cross is predicted to still use the MIVEC 1.5 liter four-cylinder DOHC heart. Pulse power up to 105 PS at 6,000 rpm. Then the engine provides a torsional moment as strong as 141 Nm, achieved at 4,000 rpm. The new CVT transmission is definitely maintained for a smoother and smoother power distribution. The 5-speed manual option is unforgettable. All distributed to the front wheels. Features that must be maintained are: ASC, ABS & EBD with BA, ESS, Hill Start Assist and Electric Parking Brake (EPB) with Brake Auto Hold. We'll see what happens next!
