With the government having set a target of 10,000 charging points for electric vehicles by 2025, the private sector has been stepping up its efforts to grow the network. Among the companies building the infrastructure is ChargeSini which installed its first EV charging station in October 2022.
According to data from the Agmo EV superapp, ChargeSini is among the top 2 charging point operators in Malaysia at this time. It has set up 582 charging points, comprising 464 points with AC supply and 118 points with more powerful DC supply for faster recharging.
EV stations at Mydin Hypermarkets
ChargeSini’s rapid expansion of its network can be attributed to forming links with key strategic partners. A significant collaboration is with Mydin Hypermarket which will see charging stations being available at 24 Mydin Hypermarket outlets nationwide by the end of March this year.
Besides Mydin, ChargeSini has also formed partnerships or joint-ventures with entities such as Lotus Hypermarket, Giant, WB Land, HCK Capital Group, Intercontinental Hotel Group, G Hotels, Holiday Inn, MyTown, The Curve, and KSL City Mall. It also collaborates with city councils such as Majlis Bandaraya Kuantan, Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh, and Majlis Bandaraya Seremban.
More user-friendly billing approach
Users are billed based on the average power (kWh) received by the EV, instead of the charger’s capable output, or charging time (minutes). This approach proves especially beneficial for EVs that may not fully leverage the maximum potential charging speed throughout the entire session. ChargeSini’s EV stations are licensed by Suruhanjaya Tenaga (Malaysian Energy Commission).
ChargeSini offers a fully integrated solution encompassing advanced software and hardware for EV charging. Features include parking locks to prevent hogging issues at charging bays, advance reservation systems (booking charging bays up to 30 minutes in advance with the ChargeSini App), and an in-app wallet for smoother transaction processes.
