The Government of Malaysia is targeting to have more than 4,000 electrical vehicles (EV) charging stations across the country by the end of 2023. The country currently has 900 charging stations. This is part of the national roadmap for EV charging stations, under which around 10,000 chargers will be installed by 2025, of which 1,000 chargers will be direct current (DC) type and remaining 9,000 units will be alternating current (AC) or slow charging type.
The Ministry of Finance (MoF) is also expected to allocate part of the 2023 Budget to develop the RV ecosystem in Malaysia. Additionally, Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) will also allocate RM90 million till 2025 to build new DC charging stations. The agency will install seven new chargers along the North-South Highway (PLUS) by the end of 2023.
TNB is also considering installing the DC chargers along trunk roads in the country.
