Key Takeaways

Thank you for attending last Saturday’s webinar on “Your next car should be an Electric Vehicle”. The session with Roxy Wong, Portfolio Manager from BNP Paribas Asset Management and Zhareef Zamree, BMW Product Genius focused on the potential of Electric Vehicles (EVs) and supply chain.


As global leaders convene in Glasgow to accelerate actions on climate change, Malaysia has embarked on its journey towards being a carbon neutral country by the year 2050. The Malaysian government announced in Budget 2022 its support in providing a full exemption on import, excise duties and sales tax for EVs, as well as income tax exemption for individuals to encourage EV ownership.


Here are some key highlights, or you can watch the replay below.


1. Market Penetration

We are at the early stage of EV rollout. Global EV sales grew 160% in 1H 2021 and is expected to continue to grow exponentially. By 2030, EV sales is projected to grow to 29 million with China accounting for than 40% of global EV sales.


2. Infrastructure & Innovation development.

The race is on to develop components and infrastructure to match the growth of EV adoption. Battery lifespan has improved substantially while cost has dropped about 89% in the last decade. Companies are also looking into recycling lithium-ion batteries and produce light weight car by using carbon fibre. BMW’s new EV models are produced in factory powered by hydroelectric and utilizes recycled materials.


3. Winning Sectors

The adoption of electric vehicles will not be confined in passenger cars as buses and trucks are electrified. The supply chain of electric vehicles such as software development, semiconductor manufacturing and electric charging stations will also be benefited in the near future.
