In a podcast with MARii, Bateriku.com has hinted at its plans on roadside support for electric cars in the future.

According Chief Strategy Officer Reshal Forzad, Bateriku.com is in continuous search of talents for its future plans with electric vehicles.

Although many technicians are capable of maintenance of the regular SLI (starting, lighting, ignition) battery, the handling of bigger lithium-ion batteries requires more precaution and skill. Those who have experience handling hybrid vehicles should be able to learn how to handle fully-electric vehicles.

To help with that matter, Bateriku.com has even established a training center to teach modules concerning EV roadside assistance.

FWD Electric cars typically have the inverter and motor under the bonnet. Lithium batteries are often located beneath the floor or behind the rear seats.

In some countries, there are EV roadside assistances that help to charge your car up to 15 km of range (in 20 minutes) so you could limp to the nearest charging station. We are yet to see what Bateriku.com has planned.

Another future plan mentioned during the “Revolusi Bateriku” podcast was an autonomous vending system for its current business of the standard SLI car batteries.

While Indonesia and Thailand have shown drastic mesaures for EV adoption, we are yet to see agressive action in Malaysia.
