MDEC Going Green With Electric Car By Comos
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 1 (Bernama) — Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) and Cohesive Mobility Solution (COMOS) today concluded a handover ceremony of an electric vehicle (EV), signifying the former’s commitment towards a greener future as well as support future technology to complement future Smart Cities of Cyberjaya and beyond.
Under the partnership, COMOS has installed a seven-kilowatt Syntronic Charging Infrastructure Solution (SyntroCIS) developed by Syntronic Malaysia Sdn Bhd, an MSC-status company, at MDeC Headquarters along with a four-year lease of a Renault Zoe under the COMOS Electric Car Sharing Programme.
MDeC employees are encouraged to utilise the vehicles for work purposes, external meetings and functions, thus helping to reduce carbon emission, and do their part to save the planet.
“Energy-efficient vehicles (EEV) are the future of transportation. MDeC is proud to be a Green Corporate Citizen following the government’s national green agenda and we hope that this programme will create bigger awareness to the public as well as promoting homegrown solutions for the growth of the EEV industry,” MDeC Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Yasmin Mahmood, said in a statement today.
Meanwhile, COMOS Chairman Datuk Seri Syed Zainal said it had always been COMOS’ goal to promote the deployment of green technologies in transportation.
“With COMOS, organisations can rely on our platform to save costs through better fleet management, zero fossil fuel consumption and reduced congestion via car sharing, while at the same time do something good for the environment, he added.
There are currently more than 20 MSC-status companies which are involved in Green Technology and over 80 per cent of them are Malaysian-owned.
Malaysia Automotive Institute and Cyberview have also leased the EV from COMOS.
