Of course, without a charging network, there's like to be few electric cars on the roads. To facilitate the sales/use of EVs, Malaysia will install 300 public charging stations this year alone. 

As FMT News reports:

"A National Electric Mobility Action Plan has been approved to promote and encourage use of electric vehicles in public transport, create a charging station infrastructure for electric vehicles and develop local electric mobility technology."

This is according to Malaysia's energy minister Dr. Maximus Ongkili.

The cost of this project is claimed to be ~ RM 5 million dollars ($1,351,534 USD).

Ongkili's vision is that this, along with other green technology plans, will have a value of RM60 billion by 2030.  In the process, the green plans will create 211,500 jobs by 2030.
