Shell has opened the first High-Performance Charging station of its cross-country EV charging network for South East Asia.

When completed, this network will be the first high-performance charging network in South East Asia.

The Shell High-Performance Charging station at Tangkak, Johor comprises of two charging stations with a maximum charge rate of 180kW
Equipped with two charge points, the first charging station is located at Tangkak, Johor, Malaysia. It is the first of a total of 12 charge points for a total of six Shell stations currently planned for the network in Malaysia, all located along the North-South highway.

Four more of these stations, sgCarMart understands, will open by the first quarter of 2022. All six stations, including the one at Tangkak, Johor, are outfitted with 180kW direct-current chargers, although you can expect charging rates to slow down if both chargers are used simultaneously.

At 180kW, a Porsche Taycan can be charged from zero to 80% battery capacity in around 30 minutes, providing up to 390km of extra travel distance. For context, that's a high enough rate to get you the charge to ferry you from Shell Tangkak to LegoLand Malaysia in Nusajaya with just slightly more than 10 minutes of charging.
