Delta Introduces EV Solutions to Southeast Asia
TAIPEI, Taiwan --(Business Wire)--
Delta Electronics announced today that it has started supplying First
Energy Networks (FEN), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tan Chong Motor
Holdings Berhad in Southeast Asia, with a wall-mounted residential AC
charger for the Nissan LEAF, the best-selling pure electric vehicle (EV)
in the world, recently launched in Malaysia. Delta's AC charger enables
the EV owners to fully charge their vehicles within four hours. In
addition, Delta is cooperating with FEN, Malaysia's first commercial EV
charging service provider, in the installation of 20 EV charging
stations in major car dealership locations, shopping malls, and public
facilities in Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Malacca and Johor Bahru to provide
EV owners free and convenient charging services. FEN's cooperation with
Delta will enable Tan Chong Motor Holdings, one of the region's largest
automobile manufacturing and sales companies, to provide a comprehensive
EV dealership platform that offers green vehicles and EV charging units
as car accessories and supports public charging infrastructure for the
development of eco-transportation in Malaysia for years to come.
"The combination of our EVs and Delta's highly energy-efficient
residential chargers is a very appealing option for our customers. Tan
Chong is, therefore, empowering a significant acceleration of the EV
market in Malaysia. Electric cars feature key characteristics such as
enegy conservation and eco-friendliness, and they will become a
mainstream product in the automobile market," said Mr. Reza Mutalib,
Director of FEN.
General Manager of Delta's Charging and Microgrid Solutions Business
Unit, Herman Chang, indicated, "The Tan Chong Group is actively
promoting EVs, which is consistent with Delta's mission "to provide
innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow."
Delta's track record in energy conversion technology for over 40 years
is the backbone of our competitiveness in EV charging solutions. In
2011, the company unveiled a CHAdeMO-compliant 50kW EV DC Quick Charger
with an industry leading energy efficiency of 94%, as well as an AC
charger that has been co-tested with multiple EV makers in Europe, the
U.S., and Japan, and complies with the safety regulations of TUV, UL,
and CNS. Our cooperation with the Tan Chong Group will provide a
convenient, quick, and safe charging service for EV users in Malaysia."
In 2013, Delta achieved considerable results in the global EV charging
market, including a quick charging solution installed at Hong Kong
International Airport, DC quick chargers and site management system
(SMS) installations for a major utility company in Thailand, EV charging
stations at Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan and a DC quick charging solution in
Norway. Delta also showcased its smart AC charger equipped with both
ZigBee and Wi-Fi communication protocols, and real-time energy
