Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz,  the Minister of Investment, Trade and Industry (MITI), highlighted how this launch propels Malaysia into the global EV arena. He pointed out that Malaysia is seriously into EVs, evident through initiatives like the Low Carbon Mobility Blueprint (LCMB) and the National Energy Transition Roadmap (NETR).

This new ecosystem encompasses pattern approvals for EV Charging Systems, the NRBTC, and Testing and Certification for EV Charging components and systems.
