Tritium DCFC Limited, a global developer and manufacturer of direct current fast chargers for electric vehicles (EVs), has announced that KuroEV, an EV charger installer and management services provider, has purchased Tritium fast chargers to be deployed across Malaysia. With only 600 charging stations currently available for the over 10,000 EVs registered in the country, Tritium’s entry into the Malaysian market comes at a crucial time.
The Malaysian government has recognised the need for increased EV charging infrastructure and has pledged to build 10,000 EV charging stations by 2025 in partnership with the private sector. This initiative is part of the government’s broader goal to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 which includes targets for 30 per cent renewable energy capacity by 2025 and maintaining 50 per cent of the nation’s land as natural forest.
Jane Hunter, Tritium CEO, said: “We are excited to partner with KuroEV to bring Tritium’s world-leading charging technology to the Malaysian market and expanding our footprint in the Asia Pacific region.
“Our fast chargers will provide reliable, high-quality charging solutions to EV drivers in Malaysia, and we look forward to supporting KuroEV in their efforts to create a comprehensive charging network across the country.”
KuroEV plans to deploy Tritium chargers at various locations throughout Malaysia, including offices, shopping malls and commercial hubs. The company also intends to create its own charging network in the future, featuring solar, on-site energy storage, EV charging, cafes and other premium services available at their sites.
Ken Too, KuroEV founder, said: “We are delighted to work with Tritium, a global leader in EV fast charging technology, to offer the latest fast charging solutions to our customers in Malaysia.
“With Tritium’s fast chargers, we can provide a seamless and reliable charging experience to EV drivers across the country, helping to accelerate the transition to a cleaner and more sustainable future.
“This investment is just the first step in our plans to create a world-class charging network that combines solar, storage, and other innovative technologies to offer a truly premium charging experience.”
KuroEV offers affordable lease-to-own options to help businesses install chargers and launch charge point operator businesses. Tritium’s entry into Malaysia represents another milestone in the company’s ongoing commitment to expanding global EV charging infrastructure and becoming the number one manufacturer of electric vehicle fast chargers in the world.
Tritium recently announced that during Earth Month it is exploring ways businesses can improve sustainability through electric vehicles and electric vehicle charging. According to Climate Watch, ground transportation is responsible for 11.9 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.
Those emissions are the result of directly burning gas and diesel fuel in internal combustion engines (ICEs). Reducing or eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from ground transportation is crucial to reducing the effects of climate change.
