Malaysian Government Approves Import Of Duty-Free Teslas
In a push to promote EVs and decrease emissions, the Malaysian government is allowing 100 Tesla vehicles to be imported duty-free.
Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Prime Minister of Malaysia, recently toured Tesla’s headquarters. Following his visit he explained:
“We want to create a more sustainable environment. Tesla is a leader in electric vehicles and they have achieved many milestones with the Model S.
Malaysia has decided to promote electric vehicles under a special program where the government will allow imports of 100 units of Model S, premium electric sedans. These cars have zero-emission. We would like to promote such cars in Malaysia.”
Details still need to be discussed with Tesla. Reports shared that Tesla might limit purchases to “government-linked” companies.
