Porsche and Shell are looking to tap into the emerging electric vehicles (EV) market in Southeast Asia, and they're starting with both Singapore and Malaysia.

Last Wednesday, the two companies announced their plans on building the first "cross-border High-Performance Charging (HPC) Network" — consisting of 12 charging points at 6 Shell stations along Malaysia's North-South highway.

As Singapore and Malaysia are known to have one of the busiest international borders, the HPC network will be placed along the highway in order to charge EVs travelling between the 2 countries.

HPC networks will reduce the range anxiety of EV owners

Despite an increasing number of people purchasing hybrid and fully electric vehicles today, much of the on-ground infrastructure is still lacking in Southeast Asia.

This presents a massive opportunity in the coming years, and may even accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles among the public.

Porsche and Shell will implement charging networks by stages

Porsche and Shell have announced that the new offering will be rolled out in stages so that the first four stations will be available by the second half of 2021.

EV charging at the remaining 2 stations are expected to launch in the first half of 2022.

Customers are at the heart of everything we do. We have been investing in building EV charging infrastructure to reduce range anxiety for our customers and this initiative is one of many examples of Shell providing solutions catered to our customers’ need for cleaner energy solutions,” said Shairan Huzani Husain, Shell cluster managing director of mobility in Malaysia and Singapore.
