The idea of electric cars taking over the place of traditional cars in the Malaysian market has been toyed around for a couple of years. However, due to the lack of proper infrastructure and lavish price, the first mission of selling the electric vehicles with full exemption on import tax and excise tax met its setback a year ago.
Now, these cars are heading towards the market at full-speed with a new initiative; the electric car sharing programme called “Cohesive Mobility Solution” (COMOS). The concept is if you can’t buy it, you borrow it by the hour. This implementation will allow cars to have more than one user like a renting service, given that the renter is a member of the programme. This also provides flexibility for the users to use the car only as much as required of their daily needs.
