Together with the price reveal of the Tesla Model Y for Malaysia, Tesla has also listed the locations of its upcoming chargers for its supercharger network in the country. After all, what is the point of getting a brand-new Tesla if you don’t benefit from its supercharger network.
Still listed as ‘coming soon’ for the time being, the locations listed and their time of opening are subject to change and new locations are added with their timings updated quarterly. The locations listed on the official Tesla website for now are:
- Petaling Jaya, Selangor
- Dengkil, Selangor

- Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur
- Kuala Lumpur (1st additional location)
- Kuala Lumpur (2nd additional location)
- Iskandar Puteri, Johor

Like the bulk of the charge point operators in Malaysia, the Tesla supercharger network mostly caters to the west coast with emphasis in Klang Valley. States which are currently listed include Negeri Sembilan, Pulau Pinang, Perak, and Johor.
On Tesla’s website, it is stated that “Supercharging payments are automatically processed from the payment method in the Tesla app”. It remain to be seen if any collaboration with local charge point operators will take place. Interestingly, Tesla may implement “idle fees” to prevent hogging by fully charged cars.
Also mentioned on Tesla’s website is its home charging solution which Tesla says is the most convenient method of charging for its customers. Tesla recommends installing its Wall Connector at home or any property and these will be available soon in Malaysia.
Tesla has announced the prices of the Tesla Model y for Malaysia, and before options, prices start at RM199,000. Quite a few things are listed as options for the car including paint jobs and full-self driving (FSD). You can book your model Y now for a non-refundable RM1,000 fee.
