Elon Musk & Tesla Want to Colonize Malaysia!


 Good news for electric vehicle (EV) users after Malaysia announced that Tesla will open a headquarters and build a network of charging stations for its vehicles in the country.

The matter was announced by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) which approved Tesla's application to import battery-powered EVs (BEVs) to Malaysia, in addition to opening showrooms and service centers.

The ministry said the company's presence is expected to increase the involvement of local companies in the Tesla ecosystem and create skilled jobs.

The Minister of International Trade and Industry, Tengku Zafrul Aziz, welcomed the US-based EV maker's desire to be involved in the Malaysian electric vehicle ecosystem.

He said, this move proves that the company is confident in the basic principles of the country's economy and the favorable business climate.

Tesla's entry is under the BEV Global Leaders program, which aims to increase demand for battery electric vehicles in the local market.

This in turn can foster the development of an ecosystem to enable the use of BEVs as well as attract investment from leading BEV manufacturing firms to Malaysia.

Accordingly, Tesla is the earliest participant in this project led by MITI.

However, so far there is no clear information about the opening date of its office in Malaysia.
