Foxconn inks EV partnership with Indonesia

Taiwan-based Foxconn has partnered Indonesia’s Investment Ministry and several companies to support the development of electric cars in the Southeast Asian country.

In recent years, Foxconn has announced deals with U.S. startup Fisker and Thailand’s energy group PTT PCL.

Foxconn signed an agreement for a wide scope of investment on EVs with the Indonesian Ministry of Investment as well as Indonesia Battery Corporation, energy firm PT Indika Energy and Taiwanese electric scooter vendor Gogoro.

Under the partnership, an open “MIH platform” that provides both hardware and software services will be available to companies in Indonesia.
