Government of Malaysia to install 10,000 EV chargers by 2025

The Government of Malaysia will partner with the private sector to install around 10,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in Malaysia by 2025 as a part of the Low Carbon Mobility Blueprint (LCMB) 2021-2030.

The government will provide companies who plan to build EV infrastructure with tax incentives and financial assistance. Other efforts include the creation of the Electric Vehicle Taskforce, which aims to bring together key ministries, agencies, and private sector participants to enhance existing strategies and develop new ones for the development of Malaysia’s EV industry. The government will also develop standards for the EV industry, including charging systems, battery disposal and swapping, wireless charging, among others, to ensure that the EV technology is standardised and secure. Currently, there are about 600 EV public charging stations in Malaysia.
