Edaran Tan Chong, one of the foremost distributors of electric cars in Malaysia, has said that it expects that in the future, all cars will run on electricity. These are the words of the company’s executive director, Tan Keng Meng. Mr. Tan was speaking on the bylines of the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2013, where his company launched the Nissan Leaf – an electric car, and the Nissan Almera Nismo Performance Package. Edaran Tan Chong is the only distributor for Nissan cars in Malaysia.

Mr. Tan said that when carbon dioxide emissions from contemporary vehicles and their environmental impact were considered, electric vehicles stood out as a good alternative for the future. He said that his company was looking seriously at recycling, sustainability and eco-mobility.
The Nissan Leaf is a 100% electric vehicle and has zero emission rate. More than 87,000 Nissan Leaf cars have been sold around the world. Now, Edaran Tan Chong has brought the car to Malaysia. Mr. Tan also added that as of now, electric vehicle charging stations had been set up in Bangsar Shopping Center, Suria KLCC and the Edaran Tan Chong showrooms. Heaping praises on the Nissan Leaf, Mr. Tan said that the car was the most successful mass produced and commercially available electric vehicle, and his company wanted to show that sustainable mobility could be achieved.
He revealed that Nissan was hoping that the government would extend incentives to electric cars in the National Automotive Policy. But he was quick to add that he had no idea about the contents of the new National Automotive Policy and that his company was comfortable with the current one. If there were any changes, they would be addressed as and when they came.
