The first Tesla Supercharger in Malaysia, located at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, is now online. This marks a significant move following the establishment of Tesla Malaysia in July, signalling the company's commitment to sustainable energy transition.
The Pavilion KL Supercharging station is equipped with 8 Superchargers. Integration with the Tesla vehicle and mobile app streamlines the charging process, enabling features like remote battery preconditioning and real-time monitoring of charging status and availability.
Featuring V3 Supercharging technology with a peak output of 250 kW, the station can provide substantial charge gains in a short time, regaining up to 270 km of range in 15 minutes for a Tesla Model Y Performance variant
Charging at the Pavilion KL Supercharger comes at RM 1.25 per kWh, alongside an idle fee of up to RM 4 per minute if the station is fully occupied.
Meaning if your charging session is complete and you leave your Tesla parked at the station, you'll be subject to a charge of up to RM4 per minute for occupying the charger. Swift relocation within five minutes of session end waives this fee.

Presently, the station is designated for Tesla vehicles exclusively. Though it is expected that certain upcoming charging stations by Tesla will be open to other electric vehicles (EVs), aligning with the criteria outlined in MITI's BEV Global Leaders program.
