Sime Darby Beyond Auto, the sole distributor of BYD cars in Malaysia, has announced a collaboration with property developer Scientex to promote the widespread adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) across various housing developments.

To support this initiative, Scientex plans to set up EV charging stations at selected locations within its nationwide housing developments. Additionally, both companies have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to become marketing campaign partners for Scientex’s upcoming Mori Residences 2 condominium project in Rawang, Selangor.

The project is said to meet the GreenRE assessment criteria and will feature an environmentally responsible design as well as EV charging stations conveniently accessible to the residents. Awareness campaigns and attractive incentives will also be offered to make EVs and eco-friendly homes accessible to the public. At present, Sime Darby Beyond Auto sells the Atto 3 and Dolphin, with the latter being its most recent EV to be launched last month.

    If Scientex is building houses with flat roof good to have power cable & grounding cable laid from roof until TNB meters of every house during construction stage. Put in some anchoring points before casting the roof concrete. New house owners will later find it easier & cheaper to install their solar roof PV system later on. No hacking required to lay these cables to solar panel on the roof.
