A system of charging stations across South East Asia
Singapore-based company Charge+ has announced plans to build 45 high-speed electric vehicle charging stations connecting Singapore with Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
On May 17, 2023, in Bangkok, Thailand, Charge+ announced its plan to develop the longest 5,000 km electric vehicle (EV) charging route in Southeast Asia, through 5 countries Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore and Vietnam. On this route, electric vehicle drivers can quickly charge DC at 45 locations through the use of the Charge+ app. The first 18 charging stations owned and operated by Charge+ will be operational from the end of 2024, and they are expected to be located in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Phnom Penh, Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. The remaining 27 locations, owned by Charge+ or partners, are expected to be ready by the end of 2025.
According to Goh Chee Kiong, CEO of Charge+, “In Southeast Asia, EVs suffer from the persistent perception that they are inconvenient for long-distance and cross-border travel. We are therefore excited to unveil this 5,000km EV charging highway project which will revolutionise societal perception of EVs in this region and provide EV drivers with the much needed confidence. This project is made possible by Charge+’s extensive operations across Southeast Asia as well as strategic partnerships in roaming opportunities which will further expand the Charge+ network.”.
