  SERSOL TAKUNI PARTNERS WITH CHINA'S BEIDOU JIEAN TO GREEN THREE NATIONS WITH EV MOTORBIKES AND SCOOTERS

Thursday 22/12/2022



KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 22 (Bernama) -- Malaysia’s E-hailing industry is poised to earn  healthy growth returns as Sersol Takuni (ST) – the joint-venture company between Sersol Berhad and Thai energy giant Takuni,  undertakes a new alliance with China’s Chongqing Beidou Jiean Neo-energy Technology Ltd (CBJN). The agreement was formalised at the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between both parties in Bangkok last week.

The ST Partnership with CBJN, a formidable satellite giant based in China, marks much anticipation in its potential to transform the electric motorbike and scooter industry across Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.  

 “ST’s latest venture seeks to embed Beidou’s technological expertise in design, product development and manufacturing of electric motorcycles and scooters to help the transition towards Net Zero carbon emissions, “said Datuk Wira Justin Lim, Managing Director, Sersol Berhad.

The MOU covers transfer of technology from CBJN to ST, involving selling and leasing solutions for the market.

“We are specifically targeting electric motorbikes and scooters to meet consumer needs to combat increased traffic congestion in urban cities, rising cost of living, high fuel prices, pollution and long commuting hours,” explained Datuk Lim.

Datuk Lim further elaborated ST has identified a unique market opportunity as there are 150k bikes crossing the Johor Bahru - Singapore causeway daily.  By manufacturing, selling and leasing these electric motorcycles to consumers, the new JV Company will be able to leverage on Singapore government’s incentive scheme to promote usage of EV motorbikes and scooters in the Republic to reduce its carbon footprint.

“To start with, the JV Company will be marketing, assembling and distributing Beidou Jiean’s Colt Electric Motorbike and Scooters.  Beidou Jiean has an annual production capacity of producing 500k Colt motorbikes in their manufacturing plants in Chongqing, China,” explained Datuk Lim. 

The Colt electric motorbikes models range from Standard, Performance and Premium.  All three are powered by advanced lithium batteries with an endurance ranging from 90-130km up to a maximum speed of 60-80kmh according to specifications for each model. There is a strong potential the JV Company may develop their own version for the regional market in the near future.

  “This EV industry ecosystem will be further supported by the development of a charging infrastructure developed by our Thai Partner, Takuni Group in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia,” added Datuk Lim.

Datuk Wira Justin Lim signed the MOU on behalf of Sersol Takuni, while Mr Alvin Lee represented Beidou Jiean at the signing ceremony in Bangkok.
