Malaysia-based TNB to raise EV ratio to 30% in 2030

Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), a Malaysia-based energy company is encouraging the use of electric vehicles (EV) as one of its measures to decrease carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. TNB plans to raise the ratio of EVs to 30% in 2030 by increasing the number of EVs to more than 1,000. TNB bought 98 new units of small vehicles including pickup trucks and the number of EVs which the company owns is expected to reach 127 soon. TNB is expected to get cost savings ranging from 35% to 86% on repair and maintenance, and cut energy costs by 25% to 70% compared to conventional fossil fuel vehicles. The Malaysian government adopted a policy to raise the ratio of EVs in the country to 20% by 2030 and targets to achieve net zero emission of CO2 by 2050.
