Promoting Electric Mobility in Asean
Personal electric mobility firm Treeletrik Sdn Bhd has officially partnered with the Asean Co-Operative Organisation (ACO) to promote and improve the distribution network for marketing of energy-efficient vehicles (EEVs) across Southeast Asia.
Both parties inked the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Nov 18, 2017 in Petaling Jaya at the third Malaysian Carnival Of Cooperatives Products Services (MACCOPS). The cooperation to enhance the marketing network for EEVs is expected to benefit co-operatives across all Asean countries, Treeletrik said in a statement.
“This partnership and collaboration is not entirely about business. It is (also) about the quality of life, sustainability (and the) future of our children,” according to the statement.
Affordable Electric Mobility
Founded in September 2015, Treeletrik markets e-motorcycles in Malaysia offering affordable e-bikes, prices begin from RM4,500 up to RM20,000 with a range of up to 120km on a single charge.
The ACO is the umbrella regional body for co-operatives from Asean countries. Formed in 2007, it is currently led by the Malaysian National Cooperative Movement (Angkasa) in the current four-year term expiring in 2018.
Other objectives of the MoU include promoting trade cooperation, sharing know-how and experience to develop and provide opportunities for cooperatives as well as use the cooperative platform to help improve social welfare and standard of living.
Following the signing, Treeletrik and ACO will form a joint working committee to iron out the terms of reference and operating procedures. Both parties would also begin fleshing out plans and strategies to achieve the MoU’s objectives.
Both parties would also loop in relevant authorities in each Asean country to facilitate future initiatives and programs under the MoU, according to Treeletrik.
E-Bike & E-Truck
At MACCOPS, Treeletrik showcased two e-bikes: the Treeletrik T-90, which retails for RM10,706, and the T-70, which costs RM4,982.
Last week, it launched an electric-powered truck called the T-MV7, which can carry a load of up to 615kg.
The T-MV7 has a single-charge range of 80km with a maximum speed of 55km per hour if buyers choose a lead-acid battery, whereas a lithium battery offers a maximum speed of 80km per hour and can go as far as 180km on a single charge.
