Malaysia government expects green cars announcements soon

Malaysia’s Deputy International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir said on Tuesday that the government expected some announcements from vehicle manufacturers or assemblers, including big carmakers to produce energy-efficient vehicles (EEVs) in Malaysia soon.

"We hope to see some announcements being made by some of the big carmakers in the near future based on the incentives we offered and I’m quite confident that they will be taking advantage of some of these special incentives that we are providing, he said.

Mukhriz said after officiating at the two-day National Automotive Technology and Digital Engineering Symposium organised by the ministry’s agency, Malaysia Automotive Institute, which began on Tuesday.
