Gentari subsidiary EV Charge Go has shown its mobile EV charger on Twitter, and this mobile EV charger is a portable charging unit installed into a Proton Exora.

This will be part of a three-month-long pilot project for a mobile EV charging solution aimed at businesses, and will offer a means of keeping electric vehicles charged when deployed for prolonged running in the course of events such as trade shows and exhibitions, as well as customer engagement events including track days, said EV Charge Go.

Currently we hear the fee that the service are planning to charge are RM10 for service fee per booking and RM0.80 per minute.

The mobile charger-equipped Exora can output up to 30 kW via CCS2 or CHAdeMO, and is powered by a 30 kWh battery pack. EV Charge Go has three units of this Exora. It also has another Toyota Hiace with a 60 kWh battery pack, able to output 30 kW as well.

The Exoras and Hiace were built by Proton subsidiary Automotive Conversion Engineering (ACE). ACE is the same company that converts standard Protons to executive and limousine models.

This charging solution eliminates the need for lengthy and costly charging installations, making it accessible and convenient for business partners. For now, EV Charge Go has yet to announce an official launch date, as well as charging rates for using this service.

Earlier this month, a similarly mobile charging setup was unveiled by BMW Group Malaysia with EV Connection at the Malaysia Autoshow 2023, shown in prototype form using a combustion-engined van. This setup uses 16 units of repurposed BMW battery modules, housing a capacity of 20 kWh and capable of providing up to 20 kVA of three-phase AC power.
