Tritium, a Brisbane-based global provider of direct current fast electric vehicle chargers, is entering the Malaysian market with a new purchase order from EV charger installer and management services provider, KuroEV. 

Tritium’s entry into the country comes at a crucial time with only 600 charging stations currently available for over 10,000 EVs registered, the company said in a press release. 

KuroEV is planning to deploy Tritium chargers at various locations throughout the Asian country, including offices, shopping malls, and commercial hubs. 

The company is also planning to create its own charging network in the future, which will include solar, on-site energy storage, EV charging, cafes, and other premium services available at their sites. 

“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,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter

“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,” the CEO added. 

“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,” said Ken Too, founder of KuroEV. 

“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,” Too said. 

The Malaysian government has set its sights on building 10,000 EV charging stations by 2025 in partnership with the private sector. This effort is part of a broader goal to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, which involves achieving targets for 30 per cent renewable energy capacity by 2025 and maintaining 50 per cent of the nation’s land as natural forest. 

Tritium’s entry into the Malaysian market marks a significant milestone in its ongoing commitment to expanding global EV charging infrastructure and becoming the world’s top manufacturer of EV fast chargers.
