with current state of battery chargers and charging stations, the answer is a clear no.

Malaysia isn't fully ready or even close to being able to output that many EV on the road.

Recently I read article on charging station:

For those who have charging point at home, they most likely will not need public charging station outside.

Only those who outstation away from home will need charging stations

Now getting more condos JMB allowed charging point installation at individual private parking, just the resident need to bear the cost of installation.

Considering an EV but live in a condo?
Not sure how you're going to charge that EV?
Well you can consider these options. cool2.gif

1. Put in a meter + EVSE and pay how much you use.

2. Put in a meter + 3 pin plug and pay how much you use.

3. Put in a DC charger in the common area parking for all residence use.
This will actually increase the value of the property as it has placed in a future facility that will be in demand as more and more people transition to EV.


4. Membership subscription with chargeEV and charge at any of their 300+ charging spots.

The cost alone is pretty prohibitive.

Also, who run the meter to your parking lot?

What is the fire compliance act on this? If charging and your car suddenly explode, who bares the costs?

Easier said than done..

Not to mention, EV batteries need to change every 8 years or so.

this will definitely make things convenient, but again, it takes a concerted effort to make it happen.

subject to your JMB/MO agreeing.

And can you imagine if every condo where to have a few dozen units connected? What if power overload happens, it can be dangerous.

In cyberjaya, atleast, many offices had implemented charging station, 3 years ago.

I think I saw a report that MY is coming up with a 10yrs plan on fully EV cars

IF only that will happen. LOL. Take for my condo for instance. Out from almost 200 units, so far only one did it.

I think you worry too much. In fact many newer condo are developed with EV in mind these days.
