Malaysia is slowly but surely moving towards the adoption of electric vehicles (EV). Just last month, the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) has announced that country is set to establish approximately 4,000 EV charging points this year. As of now, the country currently has 900 EV charging points.

Plus earlier this month, the well-known EV company, Tesla, has decided to sell their EVs here, setting up a head office and establishing their own network of Superchargers. Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), the primary electricity provider in Malaysia has also decided to venture into the EV industry by establishing their own charging stations known as “Electron”.

According to TNB Facebook page, the company announced that they are planning to establish six more Electron charging stations this year in various highway rest & recreation (R&R) spots. They already have three charging stations in service, making it a total of nine.

These are the new six Electron charging stations that are currently in development:

  • Machap R&R (Southbound)
  • Rawang R&R (Northbound)
  • Gunung Semanggol R&R (Southbound)
  • Gurun R&R (Northbound)
  • Gurun R&R (Southbound)
  • Paka R&R (Southbound)

Here are the three Electron charging stations that are currently in use.

  • Ayer Keroh (Northbound)
  • Tapah (Northbound)
  • Paka (Northbound)

The cost of charging depends on the DC charging output and not all stations have three different outputs:

  • 80kW: RM2.05 per minute
  • 90kW: RM2.20 per minute
  • 100kW: RM2.35 per minute

To activate the chargers, you can use the Go To-U app, which can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play Store. The app allows you to activate the chargers when you arrive or reserve them ahead of time for up to seven days.
