Sime Darby Motors at the forefront of EV infrastructure rollout
for Malaysia

PETALING JAYA, August 1, 2022 – Sime Darby Motors Malaysia is on track with its plans to create a seamless experience for electric vehicle (EV) owners and to support the development of a highly efficient EV charging network for its range of brands.

In playing its part to accelerate the adoption of EVs, Sime Darby Motors has identified locations for EV charging stations at every 200 to 300 kilometres along highways across Peninsular Malaysia to ensure all high-density areas are in range of charging stations. Part of these efforts include ensuring the availability of innovative and convenient support services for all existing and new customers who have purchased an EV from Sime Darby Motors.

Taking the lead in the journey is Auto Bavaria, the longest-serving and largest BMW authorised dealership group in Malaysia. Leveraging on its extensive network of direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) fast chargers, a total of 33 charging facilities are currently operational across Klang Valley, Penang, and Johor.

Sime Darby Motors today announced its network of chargers is available for booking via the GO TO-U digital experience platform for e-mobility application powered by a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Berhad, TNBX Sdn Bhd. The GO TO-U application affords Sime Darby Motors EV owners the convenience of pre-booking EV charging stations, connecting with local businesses within walking distance, and enjoying added services such as battery health checks, scheduled maintenance and customer support. Members of the public or non-Sime Darby Motors EV owners are also able to use the GO TO-U application to book EV charging stations across Sime Darby Motors’ network.

As part of Sime Darby Motors’ drive to continuously enhance services for customers, Sime Darby Motors EV owners are eligible to receive a 10-year waiver on membership fees via the GO TO-U app worth RM2,400, in addition to special DC charging rates and free charging at AC chargers available until December 31, 2022. Meanwhile, non-Sime Darby Motors EV owners will receive a membership fee waiver, special DC charging rates and free charging at AC charging points, all currently available until December 31, 2022.

Sime Darby Motors Malaysia Retail & Distribution Managing Director Jeffrey Gan said, “Sime Darby Motors remains focused on our energy-efficient drive as a leading automotive player in Malaysia. We are on track with our plans to populate our roads and highways with EV charging stations to help accelerate the adoption of EVs. We are also pleased to offer a uniquely Sime Darby Motors’ customer experience for Sime Darby Motors EV owners, which promises an enriching EV experience across all Sime Darby Motors brands. This will be a game changer for our EV customers and for us as well, with data analytics that will be made available. We are excited to bring innovative automotive experiences to our customers as we play our part in furthering the country’s aspirations for a low carbon mobility future.”

Auto Bavaria Managing Director Vi Thim Juan commented, “We are thrilled to present a new range of mobility services to our customers as we enhance their BMW EV experience. Our extensive network coupled with our new offerings will elevate and more importantly ensure a convenient journey, backed by unmatched service support.
