Applications for the Electric Motorcycle Use Promotion Scheme to encourage the use of electric motorcycles will be opened in December this year.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said this scheme is open to people with an annual income of RM120,000 and below, with a rebate of up to RM2,400 to buyers.
In the Budget 2024 presentation, the government introduced the Electric Motorcycle Use Promotion Scheme with a rebate of up to RM2,400 to help users switch to electric motorcycles.
He said the government welcomes the investment of over RM170 million by Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB), Gentari Sdn Bhd, and Tesla Malaysia to install 180 electric vehicle charging stations.
“In line with the National Energy Transition Roadmap (NETR), the government is providing an RM2 billion easy financing fund for the national energy transition plan,” Anwar said.
