This EV charging hub Gentari has rolled out in partnership with EVC consists of a 350kW supercharger, which is the fastest public charger in all of SouthEast Asia along with two DC fast chargers and five AC chargers. What’s more, X Park is the first charging hub in Malaysia that is licensed by the Energy Commission (EC).
Gentari’s Chief Green Mobility Officer, Shah Yang Razalli, stated, “Gentari’s new high-speed charging hub at X Park Sunway Serene is expected to contribute significantly towards supporting a viable EV ecosystem by improving range confidence for EV drivers with a focus on the urban charging experience.”
“As the first charging system to be licensed by EC, we are pleased to support efforts to standardize and govern Malaysia’s emerging green mobility sector, towards boosting consumer confidence. Gentari is also pleased to be the first to offer an equitable kilowatt-hour (kWh) based pricing mechanism, demonstrating our team’s customer-centric mindset and pace to act.” He added.
Lee Yuen How, Managing Director of EVC, also said, “We hope that the provision of a diverse range of affordable and accessible fast-charging infrastructure at X Park, Bangi Golf Resort and future licensed installations nationwide will help spur the EV adoption rate among Malaysians.”
“This location in Sungai Way is well-positioned to serve residential and business EV users around Petaling Jaya who are looking for reliable and convenient charging facilities with a shorter charge time. X Park is also equipped with F&B and entertainment options offered for the convenience of drivers while they charge their EVs.” He added.
On top of that, Gentari is focused on offering a mix of hubs in high traffic areas such as X Park and leisure destinations as Gentari is already working on their next upcoming hub at the Bangi Golf Club which will soon join its network. Gentari is doing this in hopes of seamlessly blending EV charging with other routine activities.
