According to the press release, Charge+ offers about 2,000 EV charging points in Singapore “and across the region.” The operator wants to grow its network to 30,000 charge points by 2030. These will span Southeast Asia – namely Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam – where Charge+ is setting up a 5,000-kilometre “EV charging highway.” In Singapore alone, Charge+ wants to set up 16,000 EV charge points by that date.

ChargeSini operates 701 charge points in Malaysia. The network also includes 122 DC chargers. The now-signed agreement gives ChargeSini’s customers access to Charge+’s chargers in Singapore, as well as to its network in “Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia.”

Charge+’s CEO, Goh Chee Kiong, said, “This roaming collaboration aligns with our mission to catalyse the proliferation of electric mobility in Southeast Asia. The extension of our charging network through roaming will dispel the misperception that EVs are not suitable for long-distance, cross-border travel. We believe in creating a seamless access to more charging points, thereby contributing to the growth in the adoption of electric vehicles in the region.”

Charge point operators Yinson GreenTech and Singapore’s ComfortDelGro ENGIE signed a similar partnership agreement in October 2023. By working together, they give customers access to more than 1,000 charge points on both sides of the border. According to YGT, “the combined network is set to increase to 8,000 – 5,000 charge points in Singapore and 3,000 in Malaysia” by 2030.,
