To overcome environmental issues related to increasing greenhouse gas emissions, Indonesia is one of the countries that has committed to supporting the use of electric vehicles to replace internal combustion vehicles. The potential increase in the use of electric vehicles (EVs) creates a large potential for the generation of electric vehicles to reach the end of life (EoL). This EoL electric vehicle can pollute the environment if released into the environment. It will be very unfortunate if this consumable electric vehicle is left alone and becomes garbage because it contains a limited number of valuable metals. Therefore, a circular supply chain (CSC) system is needed in Indonesia to reduce waste from EoL electric vehicles and reduce the need for raw materials for manufacturing electric vehicles considering that the materials used in EVs are rare and non-renewable. This research presents a conceptual model presenting the interrelationship among influential factors toward the CSC implementation of electric vehicles in Indonesia. The model was developed based on a literature review involving 25 literatures acquired from Scopus database during the period of 2002-2022. The identified influential factors included production, word of mouth, infrastructure readiness, government support, financial advantages, performance benefits, formal sector, and informal sector. The dynamic interrelationships among the factors were represented using Causal-Loop Diagram (CLD) approach. It is expected that the CLD can be used as a starting point to understand the mechanism underlying the CSC system of EVs.
