CIMB Bank Berhad (“CIMB” or “the Bank”) is pleased to collaborate with JuiceUP, a subsidiary of PAIDChain Sdn. Bhd., and Visa, a global leader in digital payments, to introduce a first-in-market contactless payment solution (“the solution”), designed for charge point operators (“CPO”) within the electric vehicle (“EV”) industry.

The CIMB-JuiceUP-Visa partnership enables the contactless payment solution, providing a hassle-free and convenient way for EV owners to charge their vehicles using debit or credit cards. This aims to make the payment process seamless and EV charging experience easier, eliminating the inconvenience of relying solely on EV apps. With this, the Bank and its partners hope to encourage more people to consider electric vehicles as a sustainable transportation option.


Effendy Shahul Hamid, Chief Executive Officer, Group Consumer and Digital Banking, CIMB Group said, “In line with shifting consumer preferences toward seamless and instant payments, CIMB is pleased to offer a first-in-market contactless payment solution, designed to streamline transactions at charge points, ensuring a seamless process for EV users to enhance the overall customer journey. This underscores CIMB’s commitment to advancing sustainable mobility through innovative offerings that elevate the EV ownership experience. “

“Kicking off our partnership with EVPower, we look to welcome more CPO operators nationwide to continually enhance and simplify payments, providing CIMB customers with dependable and accessible charging solutions with innovative propositions to further promote the adoption of electric vehicles,” he added.

Benson Lim, Chief Operating Officer, JuiceUP said, “We are committed to support the Malaysian Government’s goal of advancing the adoption of electric vehicles by removing barriers to charging infrastructure and providing innovative solutions that meet the evolving needs of the market. To this end, we are pleased to work with CIMB to offer the contactless payment solution for the convenience of EV users. JuiceUP provides a comprehensive EV charging solution, featuring a Charge Point Management System for operators to manage, monitor, onboard, and analyse charger data across multiple locations. Our platform is designed with scalability in mind, allowing operators to expand their network of charging stations seamlessly as demand grows.”

Cornelius Ee, Chief Executive Officer of EVPower said, “CIMB and EVPower are leading the charge of this movement, offering tangible benefits that make the transition to electric driving more seamless. Together, CIMB and EV Power are paving the way for seamless access to EV charging facilities, offering the ultimate convenience for EV users as well as enhancing the overall experience of owning an EV.”

As part of the exclusive partnership, CIMB Credit and Debit Cardholders can now enjoy up to 15% off charging services at EVPower stations by using their CIMB cards. This initiative aims to support the growing number of EV users by making charging more affordable and accessible through EVPower’s Charging Network.

CIMB also offers one of the most comprehensive suites of EV financial solutions in the market to drive the adoption of EVs in Malaysia. In addition to auto financing preferential rates and discounts on motor insurance, CIMB is extending an exclusive offer to successful applicants of their EV financing where eligible applicants will receive a complimentary EVPower’s EV+ Membership, inclusive of RM300 charge credits, a 10% extra wallet reload bonus, and subsidised idle fees.
