From The Star:

KOTA BARU: Electric vehicles are expected to be widely used on the road by the middle of the year after they have met conditions for registration under Section 10 of the Road Transport Act 1987, said the Director-General of Road Transport Department (RTD), Datuk Solah Mat Hassan.

He said the registration period depended on the ability of the vehicles to meet the standards stipulated by the committee on Universal Standards for Transportation (USTA).
He said that so far, more than 10 companies had been given approval by the government to develop electric vehicles, including motorcycles, nationwide.

"It is anticipated that all electric vehicles can be registered as other public transports by the middle of the year when they are registered under the Road Transport Act 1987," he told reporters after opening the 11th general meeting of the Malaysian Association of Driving Institutes (PIMA) here Friday. - BERNAMA

Is not too hard to improve condo facilities to include wall sockets for some of the parking slots.. Currently even the highest end local condo design does not factor in EV charging.. It has to be pushed from unit owner perspective. A plus point if the Condo management agrees. The question of "supporting infrastructure" is easy to solve actually.

The success of electric vehicles also depends largely whether there will public battery recharging stations built at places like car parks.

I wonder whether JPJ will also allow vehicles that were converted from fossil fuel power to electrical power, to be road legal.

First of all I want to tell you that electric vehicles can't be widley used in 4-5 monts; it takes years for that and right now electrical car are not that good (they spend a lot of time charging and the car autonomy is low). Second they have to have the same price with petrol cars if they want to make people buy them.
