Tesla and the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) said in a statement that Tesla is committed to introducing its cutting-edge lineup of electric vehicles to Malaysian consumers by offering its Model 3 and Model Y into the market.
As the company aims to cater to the diverse needs and preferences of Malaysians, more of its models will be introduced in the future.
To address the crucial aspect of charging infrastructure, Tesla will also invest significantly in setting up a vast network of fast-charging and regular-charging stations across strategic locations in Malaysia.
This initiative is aimed at providing electric vehicle (EV) owners with a seamless and convenient charging experience, encouraging widespread EV adoption in the country.
Tesla is also set to establish its state-of-the-art head office and service center in Cyberjaya, Selangor, Malaysia, which will serve as the central hub for all corporate operations, marketing, training, customer support activities, and vehicle services equipped with advanced diagnostic tools and staffed with highly trained Tesla technicians to offer prompt and reliable after-sales services to customers.
Tesla will also establish its experience centers in key metropolitan areas across Malaysia, where customers can explore and experience the latest electric vehicle models first hand.
These centers will serve as interactive spaces for potential buyers to gain insights into the benefits of electric mobility and receive personalized assistance from knowledgeable Tesla.
“Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy,” said Tesla’s Regional Director Isabel Fan.
As part of Tesla’s commitment to Malaysia, she said the firm has unveiled a comprehensive development plan for an experience center, service and support, and charging infrastructure in the country, aimed at delivering a seamless Tesla ownership experience.
