Erik Winter, Managing Director of PHSAM, expressed his excitement about the overwhelming response from dealers and customers for the Audi e-tron. “This launch represents a significant milestone for Audi in Malaysia, and we are proud to be the first country in the region to introduce the Q8 e-tron. These top-of-the-line luxury vehicles, known for their high performance, have been eagerly awaited and are set to captivate Malaysians who seek sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility options,” said Erik.
He further added, “This is just the beginning, as we are already working on bringing more e-tron models to Malaysia, including the flagship SQ8 and the Q6 e-tron, which will make its global debut later this year.”
The increasing momentum of electric vehicles in Malaysia is fueled by government incentives and industry collaborations aimed at achieving the government’s goal of having 1.5 million EVs in the country by 2040. Audi believes that the adoption of electric vehicles will continue to grow as electro-mobility becomes increasingly mainstream in the coming years.
To enhance the ownership experience, all Audi e-tron models come equipped with the mobile e-tron Charging System Compact, which provides charging convenience regardless of location. This system includes an intelligent compact charger and power cables that can be connected to a standard household power socket with an output of 1.8 kW to 2.3 kW or a three-phase power supply with an output of 11 kW. The charging unit allows users to set the charging power at 100% or 50% to avoid overloading the home’s electrical system. Additionally, owners will receive complimentary RM1,000 JomCharge credits, valid for one year.
PHSAM has also partnered with MOON POWER, a European energy solutions provider, to offer further charging solutions for e-tron owners in Malaysia. MOON POWER, a subsidiary of Porsche Holdings Salzburg (PHS), is making its first entry into a country outside of Europe with this collaboration. Starting in September 2023, customers will have the option to purchase MOON POWER wallbox chargers in 11 kW and 22 kW variants. These chargers undergo stringent quality control to meet Audi’s charging and safety standards. In preparation for the launch, all three Audi Centers in Glenmarie, Setia Alam, and Juru have been equipped with MOON POWER charging stations, providing Audi e-tron owners with exclusive charging services.
All Audi e-tron models come with a standard 2-year unlimited mileage warranty, an 8-year or 160,000 km battery warranty, and 5 years of complimentary roadside assistance. Customers can also opt for the Audi Assurance Package (AAP), which offers an additional 3 years of warranty and 3 years of maintenance at 15,000 km service intervals.
