Highlights from the International Electric Mobility Showcase 2023
The International Electric Mobility Showcase 2023 (IEMS 2023) stands as a captivating segment within the 14th International Greentech and Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM). A collaborative effort by the Malaysian Green Technology and Climate Change Corporation (MGTC) and Qube Integrated Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., the 2nd IEMS 2023 unfolded its electric spectacle from 4 to 6 October 2023.
Unveiling the Future of Electric Mobility
IEMS 2023 electrified attendees with a dynamic display of cutting-edge electric vehicle (EV) marvels. From sleek e-bikes to futuristic cars, buses, and trucks, the showcase was a playground for enthusiasts exploring the latest in residential and commercial EV systems. Beyond being a mere display of vehicles, IEMS 2023 emerged as a crucible for disruptive ideas and avant-garde technologies, capturing the imagination of a fervent audience.
Charting the Course: “Towards Net Zero Transportation”
Themed “Towards Net Zero Transportation”, IEMS 2023 assumed the role of a catalyst in steering the transportation industry towards sustainability. Positioned strategically to align with the global green wave, the event underscored its commitment to fostering a zero-emission transportation ecosystem. Attendees found themselves immersed in the latest breakthroughs and innovations, as the chosen theme echoed the urgent call for a greener and environmentally conscious future.
National EV Taskforce Pavilion: A Hub of Excellence
A notable enhancement to the event experience was the introduction of the National EV Taskforce Pavilion. Functioning as a centralised hub for the Malaysian EV industry, this Pavilion receives support from key ministries and agencies, including MIDA. It stands as a dedicated platform, providing comprehensive information, resources, and support across various aspects of the Malaysian EV landscape.
A highlight within the Pavillion was the insightful Pocket Talk by Mr. Erfian Johari, Senior Assistant Director of the Transportation Technology Division, MIDA.

He emphasised MIDA’s pivotal role, detailing substantial policies and tax incentives geared towards nurturing the growth of the EV ecosystem. MIDA is well-prepared to encourage additional investments in EVs, offering attractive facilitation to ensure a seamless business environment for investors in Malaysia.
Beyond Showcases: Networking and Collaboration
Beyond the Pavilion, IEMS 2023 featured a spectrum of programmes, including EV product showcases, Business Matching Sessions, and Networking Sessions, offering participants a chance to engage in fruitful discussions and explore potential collaborations. Test drives added a hands-on dimension, allowing attendees to experience the power and efficiency of the showcased EVs.
Malaysia’s Commitment: Shaping the Future of EVs
IEMS 2023 was not just a showcase; it was a commitment. As Malaysia positions itself to capitalise on the momentum of electric mobility, the Government reaffirms its dedication.
