Charging Ahead, What Happened To Malaysia’s EV Roadmap?

We look into Malaysia's evolving electric vehicle (EV) landscape amid recent news of the Ministry of Investment, Trade and Industry (Miti) reconsidering the ambitious target of establishing 10,000 EV charging stations by 2025.

Joining us are two key figures in the Malaysian EV scene: Daniel Fernandez, the mind behind, and Sharol Halmi, President of the Malaysian Electric Vehicle Owners Club.

As Malaysia strives to align its transportation sector with global sustainability goals, this discussion offers a timely look into the hurdles, opportunities, and milestones on the path to a more sustainable and electric-powered future.
