Tesla Model Y has made its official debut in Malaysia today and naturally, Supercharger was one of the main areas that Tesla covered during the launch event. The company revealed during the event that it has signed up with several local property developers for Supercharger implementation.
According to Isabel Fan, the Regional Director of Tesla, the list includes Pavilion Group, Sunway Group, Gamuda Land, Levn Capital, and Quill Group. Tesla Malaysia representative has also informed us that the MRCB is part of the list as well.
Since Isabel mentioned on stage that these partners already “committed, signed the contract”, this seemed to signify that the Supercharger implementation partnership is not just a simple Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreement. She added that there will be more to come in the future as Tesla is currently forming additional partnerships.
As for Gamuda Land, the developer signed an MoU with TNB to build two Electron stations in Selangor by 2025 which signifies the company’s interest towards EVs. Quill’s relationship with EV charging infrastructure is not so well documented but its subsidiary Quill Automobile does operate several AC and DC chargers at the company’s BMW dealership in Petaling Jaya.
The same goes for MRCB although one of its landmark projects, Menara Shell was a certified Green building with dedicated parking bays for electric vehicles.
