With more and more EV cars being sold here, how many are there now?

With Malaysia seeing more EVs being driven on the road many are wondering just how many there are so let’s find out. Here is a breakdown of most EV models registered in Malaysia as of August 2023, with the data being set from JPJ. 


Kicking off the list is BMW EV models with 1856 units of the iX being registered, while 291 units of the iX1 have been registered and 381 units of the iX3 have been registered while 45 units of the i3 have also been registered and 160 units of the i4 were registered and 158 units of the i7 were registered for a total of 2891 units for the brand.

Meanwhile, for Mercedes-Benz, 211 units of the EQA were registered while 159 units of the EQB were registered while 96 units of the EQC were registered with 123 units of the EQE being registered and 182 units of the EQS were registered and 7 units of the EQV were registered for a total of 778 units.

Kia also saw 113 units of its EV6 being registered and the Renault Zoe saw 58 units being registered as well as 44 units of the Twizy being registered for a total of 102 registrations and Jaguar saw 28 units of its i-Pace being registered while Audi saw 21 units of its e-Tron being registered as well as 7 units of the RS e-Tron GT being registered for a total of 28 units while Honda saw 16 units of the Honda e being registered.

Do note that there is no data yet for the Kia Niro, Hyundai Ioniq 6 , MG, Neta V, Hyundai Kona, XC40 and Mini Electric and that the above share numbers with their petrol versions so no data available. 

Well, the numbers don’t lie and while we still have a long way to go to achieve meaningful EV adoption in Malaysia, we are at least, on the right track.
