Mercedes-Benz Malaysia mulls bringing in EV


MBM president and chief executive officer Claus Weidner (pic) said the company is looking at the economic feasibility of bringing in the EQ.

KUALA LUMPUR: Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) is considering to introduce its electric vehicle (EV), the EQ, locally but this will depend on the National Automotive Policy (NAP) and the charging infrastructure.

MBM president and chief executive officer Claus Weidner (pic) said the company is looking at the economic feasibility of bringing in the EQ.

“However, the local introduction will be dependent on the government’s incentive for the production and regulations in the market, ” he said during a virtual media roundtable.

According to him, the carmaker has plans to bring the EV into Malaysia but it will have to adjust accordingly due to the uncertainties and the political environment.

“We have had a discussion before but we have to see whether our requirements are met.

“We will continue to work closely with the Malaysia Automotive, Robotics and IoT Institute and the International Trade and Industry Ministry to see what are the requirements under the revised NAP to see if we can bring in this EV, ” he added. — Bernama
