Shell Recharge is currently in the process of setting up an EV charging station in Genting Highlands which will include the availability of ultra-fast 360 kW high-performance chargers (HPC). The 10 charging bays at the peak of Resorts World Genting will consist of 10 charging bays to further improve the seamless electric mobility experience.
This new Shell EV charging hub, which is expected to be ready by early 2024, will add to the 136 charging points that Shell Recharge has in strategic locations in major cities and along the highways of Peninsular Malaysia. This is part of Shell’s initiative to provide a more convenient way of travel for electric vehicles between Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. The Genting facility is also made possible with the strategic partnership with Porsche Malaysia and Genting Malaysia Berhad. There are also plans to set up EV charging points in Resorts World Awana.
This all-in-one EV charging hub will be fitted with 10 bays where 4 bays provide 360 kW high-performance charging while 6 bays provide 22 kW AC charging for those who are planning to spend more time in Genting Highlands. All chargers come with CCS Type 2 charging connectors.
“With the addition of 10 charging bays at the hilltop of Resorts World Genting, we continue to make headway towards a continued commitment of enabling a net-zero transport solution in Malaysia. Soon, EV customers from all over the country and beyond will be able to drive their way up to this premier resort without having range anxiety, experiencing a worry-free journey with our Shell Recharge network,” said Seow Lee Ming, General Manager of Shell Mobility, Malaysia.
Christopher Hunter, Chief Executive Officer of Sime Darby Auto Performance, representing Porsche Malaysia, commented: “Our partnership with Shell Recharge is a testament to our commitment to enabling long-distance, cross-border travel in an EV, connecting 3 countries – Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. We are delighted to further elevate seamless charging experience for our Porsche Taycan owners, as well as other Porsche electric vehicle models on the horizon, with this new high-performance Shell Recharge 360 kW DC charging hub in Resorts World Genting, providing ultra-fast charging speeds of just approximately 20 minutes for a complete 5-80% State of Charge (SoC).”
“We are honoured to be able to offer a high-performance EV charging hub to our guests. With the rapid adoption of EV cars in Malaysia and across the region, this will help promote sustainable tourism and provide convenience to our visitors up at Resorts World Genting,” said Gary Chen Wing Kong, Senior Vice President, Real Estate Development and Project of Genting Malaysia Berhad.
Also of importance is the change in Shell Recharge rates from a per minute basis to per kilowatt-hour (kWh) basis. Effective 1 November, 2023, EV drivers can charge with the new kWh rates when they charge with AC chargers nationwide. For Shell’s DC charging stations, the new rates by kWh will take effect on 15 December 2023. The Shell Recharge model maintains a reservation fee and will implement an idle fee across different the charging bays to ensure accessibility to all EV drivers.
The new rates are:
For a seamless and worry-free journey, customers can still reserve parking bay in advance via Shell’s ParkEasy app. Other features include navigation access for EV customers to assist drivers in locating available bays and a parking barrier to ensure the bay’s availability. You can also get preferential rates by paying for a Shell Recharge membership via the ParkEasy app. Or buy a Porsche Taycan to enjoy those rates.
Shell Recharge is also offering an exclusive credit bundle in conjunction with this tripartite partnership. Between 15 December 2023 and 15 February 2024, you can buy a 1-year ParkEasy Plus package for RM600 and receive an extra RM120 worth of charging credit, to make it a total of RM720. You will also enjoy 10% cashback on the use of Shell Recharge AC charging and 15% discount on Shell Recharge HPC. This offer is non-renewable.
