Tesla Supercharger Pavilion KL now online, priced at RM1.25 per kWh with RM4 per minute idle fee

There are reports that the Tesla Supercharger site at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur has gone online. A screenshot of the site in the Tesla app was posted on the MyEVOC Facebook Group earlier today, indicating seven of eight stalls available, so there must be a Tesla charging there at that point.

Billing is made through Tesla via the debit/credit card registered in your app. The fee for the Pavilion KL supercharger site is listed as RM1.25 per kWh, with idle fees of RM4 per minute. At the moment this site is for Tesla cars only, but there will be some future charger sites that will allow usage by cars from other brands as per the requirements of MITI’s BEV Global Leaders programme.

This means if you have finished charging and leave your car parked there, you will have to pay RM4 per minute for ‘hogging’ the charger. If you disconnect and move your car within five minutes of your charging session ending, the idle fee is waived. Idle fees double when the station is at 100% capacity.

While idle fees are great for deterring hoggers who plug in, unfortunately there is no way to penalise any Tesla that is just parked at the supercharger without actually plugging in.

The site is listed as having 250 kW max power, but not likely that all eight stalls can sustain 250 kW at the same time. In any case, the charging curve of the Tesla cars themselves can’t sustain 250 kW for long, but with pricing being based on kWh instead of time, the max power matters less. In general, you’d normally unplug when the charging curve flattens, which is about 15-20 mins.

Presently, there are 12 Tesla Supercharger locations that have been identified, including the one at Pavilion KL. Previously identified general locations include five in the Klang Valley, at Dengkil and Petaling Jaya in Selangor, and at Bukit Jalil and two other locations in KL. Two will be in the northern region, in Ipoh and Perai in Penang, while the southern region will have two locations, in Negeri Sembilan and Iskandar Puteri, Johor.

      RM5,500 to fly to London on economy class or RM22,000 to fly to London on business class? You arrive at the same time, you just disembark a few minutes later.

      Stupid? It’s like us thinking whether to spend RM5.50 or RM22. Don’t be bitter, get better

    TESLA DC charger at RM 1.25/kwh. Is the CHEAPEST in Malaysia. Paid Rm1.50 /kWh from a “national Backed” charger. As for Idle Charges … Brilliant Idea for those who LEAVE if as SPARE Parking Space. ALL EV cars have APPS which can inform your hand Phone when you reach your required KW in your Battery. No excuses NOT to go and Un Plug the charger so OTHERS can use it.

  • great idea for charging idle (definitely people will try to get such easy parking in malls).
    but RM4/min too insane, probably a 5-10 mins sounds more reasonable

  • this charging station just can implement a simple tech — park without connecting charger, after 5min, then sound alarm with flashes red light, additionally auto capture the pic of the car and its plate then post in media social.. all this should be cheap tech to implement and maximize this charging station boss profit anyway since no more people park for free.. since normally this places has guard scattered around, so they can come and clamp the tyre, extra money for the place owner.. Do this, then people wont dare to easily park without thinking even for the rich..

    I say it on nearly every Tesla post on PT that I come across. Every Tesla comes with sentry mode built in and it records full time 360 degrees. Do not key (scratch) Teslas, you will be caught.

    Do not let your petty hatred for the CEO or the brand cause harm to yourself and your family, these cars are stupid expensive to repair. Just continue to post anonymously on the internet about how dumb Teslas are instead, it is much safer

      Nahh…people in the US did that all the time. A person coming out of nowhere, hooded sweatshirt with facemask. Scratch a tesla and continue walking their way. It’s only a camera after all, can’t recognise face behind a mask. Owner may be notified via smartphone, but the criminal has long gone when owner arrived at their tesla. Watch a tesla cam ytube channel and you know what I’m talking about.

  • This RM4 idle fee is a very good one to prevent people from hogging the charger.
