PT Gesits Tecnologies Indo (GTI) is now selling its maiden product, the electric scooter, for Rp 24.9 million (US$1,753).

“After passing through a series of research tests and the construction and production stages, we are proud to present Gesits […] which uses electric power technology,” said PT GTI CEO Harun Sjech on Thursday as quoted by kompas.com.

He said the company did not announce the on-road price of the vehicle because of different taxes, depending on the region.

Orders for the vehicle opened Thursday and deliveries would be made starting July, he said adding that customers could place orders at Hall C of Jakarta International Expo (JIExpo) during the Indonesia International Motor Show from April 25 to May 5 in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta.

Gesits was developed in collaboration with state-owned enterprises, namely construction company PT Wijaya Karya, weapon maker PT Pindad, technology company PT Len, state-owned oil and gas holding company Pertamina and state-owned electricity company PLN. (bbn)
