KUALA LUMPUR: Gentari Sdn Bhd, a clean energy solutions provider, intends to partner with Mercedes-Benz Malaysia to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in the country.

The proposed partnership would be by way of its subsidiary, Gentari Green Mobility Sdn Bhd.

The intent was made through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that was announced at the launch of the Mercedes-Benz EQE 500 4Matic SUV today.

The partners would explore the potential development of EV charging infrastructure, along with value-added services, such as tailored charging subscription plans, that will enhance the customer experience of Mercedes-Benz EV owners.

The potential charging point operations would be jointly developed with EV Connection Sdn Bhd (EVC), and to cater to EV drivers’ needs, these facilities would be installed at selected strategic locations across Malaysia, to ease long distance travel.

This potential initiative is also aimed at providing range confidence for EV drivers.

Gentari Green Mobility currently operates 79 DC chargers across nine states including the Federal Territory and is rapidly expanding its reach in the Asia Pacific region.

Since its introduction in June 2022, Gentari has deployed over 200 charging points in Malaysia and over 190 charging points in India, through its affiliated entities.
