Starbucks Malaysia partners Yinson GreenTech – 23 ChargEV guns at 17 outlets; 22 kW AC and 50 kW DC

Following its recent deal with AEON Group to set up EV chargers in malls, Yinson GreenTech together with Starbucks Malaysia has unveiled a new network of charging stations, powered by chargEV. Currently, chargEV is Malaysia’s largest public charging network with over 400 charging points nationwide.

The launch took place at the Starbucks Eco Grandeur, Puncak Alam and with that, 23 new EV chargers at 17 different Starbucks stores within Klang Valley, Penang, Malacca, and Johor are now in operation. The installation of the EV chargers, powered by chargeEV, is the first for a retail coffee chain in Malaysia. It was announced at the unveiling that over the next three years, more EV charging stations with AC and DC fast chargers will be built within the Starbucks network of drive-thru stores.

Most of the 17 Starbucks outlets will only offer AC charging, while selected locations offer both 22 kW AC and 50 kW DC fast charging.

Users will need to download the chargEV app available on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, and the rates vary whether you have an active charge membership (discounted rates) or not.

That said, from today till the end of October 2022, EV owners can charge their vehicles at all 23 EV charging stations in 17 different Starbucks stores completely free of charge. AC and DC charging rates for members and non-members will be announced at the end of the free charging period.

From November 1, Starbucks customers who are chargEV members and charging their EVs at one of the 17 Starbucks stores can enjoy up to 50% off their first Grande handcrafted beverage, purchased in a single receipt. Members will need to produce their chargEV membership ID on the mobile app upon redemption. The promotion is valid for 12 months.

The 17 Starbucks stores are as follow:

  • Starbucks Kota Kemuning Drive-Thru (DC chargers)
  • Starbucks Reserve Setia Alam (DC chargers)
  • Starbucks Ukay Perdana Drive-Thru (DC chargers)
  • Starbucks Eco Gradeur Drive-Thru (DC chargers)

      If the sankala and ulu place is in between major route then it makes sense. You only need to top up on long trips. As it is EVs only makes sense if you have home charging so DC chargers are only used when you need extra range for balik kampung/long trips
