Formerly called City Gas, the 160-year-old company was rebranded as City Energy in December 2021 as it pivots to provide new energy solutions beyond its core piped gas service to homes and businesses in Singapore. Under the new branding, Go, the EV service provider finances, operates and maintains a network of EV charging stations, supported by its mobile app. It has a strategic partnership with EV Connection Sdn Bhd to extend charging connectivity into Malaysia. With this partnership, EV drivers can access EV Connection’s network of charge points in Malaysia from 19 April 2022 via the Go app.

EV Connection is one of Malaysia’s pioneers in electric vehicle charging solutions and an authorised EV charging station distributor registered with Suruhanjaya Tenaga, CIDB, Tenaga Nasional Berhad and MyHijau. EV Connection is also a TÜV SÜD certified EV charger installer, and works with numerous auto manufacturers. Founder of EV Connection and Managing Director of JomCharge, Mr. Lee Yuen How said “EV Connection strives to provide practical solutions to spearhead the green industry here in Malaysia. This groundbreaking strategic partnership with Go by City Energy allows both Singapore and Malaysia EV drivers to extend their range across both countries for maximum connectivity and convenience.”

“Go will be the first service in Singapore that extends EV charging capabilities into Malaysia, providing an added convenience for drivers on both sides of the Causeway as well as up and down the North-South Highway. We are confident that both consumers and real estate developers will take advantage of the total value we offer for greener and smarter living,” said City Energy Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Perry Ong.
