Sime Darby Motors Malaysia is well on its way to creating a 'seamless' charging and ownership experience for EV owners located every 200km to 300km along the highways. 


As part of its EV adoption plans, Sime Darby Motors has identified prime locations for its EV charging network. These charging stations will be located at every 200km to 300km mark along the highways of Peninsular Malaysia as well as near high-density areas.

Auto Bavaria taking the lead

BMW's largest and longest-serving dealer network, Auto Bavaria, is leading the charge (literally) with a total of 33 charging facilities (both AC and DC) across the Klang Valley, Penang, and Johor.

Apart from catering to customers of the brands under Sime Darby Motors, they've also announced that its charging network is now available for booking via the Go To-U app, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Berhad, TNBX Sdn Bhd.

Bookings for charging slots as well as other added services are available for all, including members of the public and non-Sime Darby Motors EV owners. For EV customers of Sime Darby Motors, they'll receive a 10-year waiver for the Go To-U app membership fees worth RM2,400 as well as special DC charging rates, and of course, free AC charging.

We are on track with our plans to populate our roads and highways with EV charging stations to help accelerate the adoption of EVs.”

This will be a game changer for our EV customers and for us as well, with data analytics that will be made available.
