JAKARTA (Reuters) – 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.

Metro selects Hitachi Rail to build its next-generation rail car

Metro General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld informed board members of the decision in a letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Post.

Terms of the contract have not been finalized, and Metro declined to comment further because the two sides are in negotiations.

“The 8000-Series rail car procurement process remains active, and we are unable to comment at this stage of the process,” Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said. “We are excited to share information with Metro riders as soon as a contract is awarded.”

Metro plans to order 256 cars, with an option to purchase up to 800. The transit agency told bidders that it will incentivize the building of a local assembly plant for the project, which could potentially last beyond the transit agency’s contract and become a source of new rail cars and jobs for years.

Hitachi Global is a more than 100-year-old Japan-based corporation

Karma Automotive is getting into the light-duty electric vehicle game. Karma says it will work with Ayro, Inc. in a “strategic manufacturing, engineering and design partnership” to make “more than 20,000 vehicles” by the end of 2023 that will be valued at more than $300 million.

Ayro, formerly known as AEV, says its EVs are purpose built, which is one way of saying they’re the small work trucks that you’re likely to see on college campuses or working in cities to make last-mile deliveries or municipal duties. The company’s current line-up of “light-duty, urban and short-haul electric vehicles” come in two versions, the Club Car 411 and the 311.

Ayro’s Club Car 411 is a prototypical example of these work trucks, one of these simple utility vehicles that you can imagine cruising around with rakes and a big water cooler strapped to the back. The
