KUALA LUMPUR: Yinson Holdings Bhd has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with GoCar Mobility Sdn Bhd to provide charging infrastructure facilities and solutions, along with customer care services to GoCar users.
Yinson, in a statement, said its green technologies division, Yinson Greentech through its joint venture company Green EV Charge Sdn Bhd signed the MoU with GoCar Mobility.
Green EV Charge is a joint venture between Yinson Green Technologies (M) Sdn Bhd and GreenTech Malaysia Alliances Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary under the Malaysian Green Technology and Climate Change Corporation, an agency under the purview of the Environment and Water Ministry.
Under the agreement, Green EV Charge will provide access to chargEV’s charging infrastructure to GoCar’s fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) through chargEV’s mobile app.
Users will also be able to charge their EV and monitor the charging status via the app, plus benefit from chargEV’s comprehensive customer care services.
In the longer term, both parties will work towards integrating respective technologies to deliver a seamless experience for GoCar users.
“We believe that chargEV’s new back-end system and mobile app, together with our rapidly expanding charging infrastructure network will be able to support the growth of GoCar’s network and user base.
“Working together, we believe we can position EVs as an attractive and sustainable transport option in Malaysia,” Yinson GreenTech senior vice president electromobility Ruslin Tamsir said.
GoCar Malaysia chief executive officer Wong Hoe Mun said enhancing connectivity to chargEV will help improve the user experience of EV charging throughout Malaysia.
“We are proud to champion a smarter, greener way of commuting. GoEV has seen great success in making EVs affordable and accessible to the general public.
“The integration with chargEV will offer even more accessibility. Through our GoCar mobile app, any EV user, not just GoCar members will be able to seamlessly connect to both networks for their EV charging needs,” he added.
