The Ministry of Investment, Trade, and Industry (MITI) reported that they had put 268 electric car (EV) charging stations into operation, increasing the total number of EV charging bays (EVCB) to 2,288 units by March 2024.

Bernama reports that according to MITI Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz, although the objective of installing 10,000 new charging stations remains the same, they have raised the target for direct current (DC) fast chargers from 1,000 to 1,500 stations.

Zafrul noted that in the first quarter of the year, the country’s EV market saw significant growth, with nearly 11,000 units of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and hybrids sold by March 2024.

He mentioned that during the National EV Steering Committee (NEVSC) meeting, there was a discussion focused on the EV Battery Passport concept.

The NEVSC meeting concluded that all EV batteries must have identification to aid in tracing and recycling at the end of their lifecycle, in line with the principles of the circular economy.

“EV vehicles are integral to the circular economy. There are numerous initiatives that can be implemented to enhance the current EV ecosystem.”

He added that Malaysia will collectively propel the development of the country’s EV industry and ecosystem in a progressive manner.
