As of 25 June 2024, Malaysia has made significant strides in expanding its electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure.

A total of 2,585 EV charging units have been installed nationwide, covering all states and federal territories except Labuan. This represents a 12.5% increase from the first quarter of the year, according to Bernama.

The Investment, Trade, and Industry Ministry (MITI) provided details on the distribution of these charging units. Of the total, 610 units are of the direct current (DC) type, while the remaining 1,975 units are alternating current (AC) chargers. This mix ensures compatibility with various EV models.

Here’s a breakdown of the top regions with the highest number of EV chargers:

  • Selangor: 867 chargers
  • Kuala Lumpur: 675 chargers
  • Penang: 277 chargers
  • Johor: 251 chargers

Approximately 17,000 registered EVs and 11,000 registered plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) currently rely on these charging points.

Additionally, the ministry said EV and PHEV owners have the option to reduce their dependence on public charging stations by installing private EV charging facilities at home.

Looking ahead, the Malaysian government has set ambitious targets for EV adoption. By 2025, they aim to establish 10,000 public EV charging points across the country.

Furthermore, their long-term vision includes having 1.5 million EVs on Malaysian roads by 2040.
