Malaysia's Mobility Werk has signed an agreement with the UK's EZ-Charge to create electric vehicle chargers in Malaysia.

· Industry Updates

Mobility Werk(MW) is about those who track the record in local manufacturing of automotive components in Malaysia. Under the MW group, the auto division are MW Assembler, MW Advantech (filter, plastic components, and fluids manufacturing), MW Electronics (exclusive distributor of the Alpine car audio brand), and MW EV where the latter was founded to produce electric vehicle parts and chargers (EVs). More than that, MW group supplies local and international brands such as Perodua, Proton, Honda, Toyota, Inokom, Modenas, and Mitsubishi Motors are among the OEMs. 

As we all know, Malaysia, like the rest of the earth, is moving toward an electric vehicle industry. This means that the internal combustion engine will eventually be phased out and as a result, MW Group has made strategic and long-term initiatives to collaborate with technological partners from around the world. MW Group has picked EZ-Charge, a UK-based firm with more than 30 years of experience in smart electronic solutions, as a technical partner in the Malaysian automotive industry's EV development.

MW wants to become the pioneer in the manufacturing of electric vehicle parts, components, and chargers, and its long-term strategy includes a focus on EV manufacturing localisation to help form a competitive EV supply chain ecosystem in Malaysia and Asia-Oceania.

The Smart Dual 22kW Charger from EZ-Charge, which supports contactless card, RFID card, and smartphone app payments, is the public EV charger you can see here. It has a feature that allows you to keep track of the charger's state in real time. A compact electric hatchback with a 52 kWh battery and a range of 390 kilometers would take 1.4 hours to charge from 20% to 80%, providing 225 kilometers of range.

To bring about the localisation of EV parts and components, MW Group will seek out more strategic alliances, particularly with Japanese partners. This is the foundation of their strategy plan in playing a key role in the automotive industry's transition to EV technology. The engagement with EZ-Charge, as well as future collaborations, will help Malaysia build a competitive supply chain ecosystem environment. Make sure you strap on your belts and hang tight about this futuristic feature coming to local industry soon.
