To supporting the downstream and commercialization of the battery electric vehicle (BEV), Universitas Sebelas Maret is developing a battery-based three-wheeled electric vehicle. This 3-wheeled electric vehicle has the advantage of being more stable in use and can carry passengers or goods. However, in the application of the use of 3-wheeled electric vehicles, there is no sufficient charging station to support mass use, so people are still reluctant to use it. The supply chain network design is needed to analyze the optimum location of the charging station. This study proposes the location of a 3-wheeled electric vehicle charging station to achieve the widest possible coverage with the least number of charging stations and minimal investment costs with a case study in the city of Surakarta. Potential public facilities that are used as locations for charging stations are markets and malls, both of which are frequently visited and easily found by the public. The method to be used is a modification of the backup coverage model and the distance-based model run with IBM ILOG® CPLEX® Optimization. The results obtained are a recommendation to the city government to support the acceleration of electric vehicles, especially 3-wheeled vehicles in Surakarta.
