BEV Charging Company partners with Yinson GreenTech to expand smart EV charging infrastructure in Brunei

Good news electric vehicle owners!

Brunei’s first and leading public charge point operator, BEV Charging Company (BEV) and Yinson GreenTech recently inked an agreement that will see charge points across the nation integrated into the chargEV app, offering motorists a combined network of over 1,000 chargers across Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei.

With the strategic partnership, motorists in Brunei will now be able to enjoy the same seamless experience as their regional counterparts discover, activate and make payment for the utilisation of charging points through the chargEV app

Moreover, the collaboration will also elevate the convenience of EV drivers, particularly during cross-border trips, as they can now utilise the chargEV app to access an extensive network of charge points across the region, with payments facilitated in local currency.

The signing ceremony was held at the satellite showroom of Maju Motor at The Mall Gadong, where Brunei’s first charge points were installed in November 2023 by Maju Motors, who is the authorised dealer for BYD in Brunei, and BEV.

The event marks the beginning of a more connected and accessible EV charging infrastructure, with more charge points to be integrated in the coming months.

BEV Executive Director Ryan Phua said that as one of the pioneers in Brunei’s fledgling EV space, the company is excited to partner with Yinson GreenTech, whose solutions have been a major accelerator of EV adoption in the region.

“We aim to support the transition from conventional cars to EVs, towards cultivating a zero-emissions lifestyle in Brunei in alignment with the sultanate’s Vision 2035,” he said.

He added: “Getting onto the chargEV app is just the beginning. In cooperation with other local industry players and the Brunei government, we will work together to build a strong EV infrastructure across all four districts in Brunei.”

On his part, Managing Director of Yinson GreenTech’s digital arm, DigitalEV, Sreedhar Sivasambu, said that the partnership signaled a breakthrough for Brunei’s EV industry, as it addressed its biggest growth hurdle – range anxiety.

“Yinson GreenTech has developed a range of smart digital solutions that can help businesses, communities and individuals to transition easily and affordably to EVs,” he said.
