Ni Hsin EV Tech Sdn. Bhd. (NH EV TECH), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Malaysia main market-listed Ni Hsin Group Berhad, has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with UNIVERSITI TEKNIKAL MARA SDN. BHD. (UnIKL), to promote the innovative electric motorcycles known as EBIXON EV Motorcycles.

Ni Hsin said in a statement on Monday that under the LOI, UniKL and NH EV TECH agree to exercise their best efforts to explore various potentials within any field related to the electric motorcycle industry that are beneficial to the parties.

The collaboration shall cover the areas of education, research and development (R&D), project management, social and culture and aims to establish the Industrialmanship program in UniKL for the purposes of industrial exposure such as technical workshops or seminars, industrial training placement and employability program to UniKL students where NH EV TECH has the technical expertise and entrepreneurship program.

The rationale of the LOI is for NH EV TECH to leverage on the technical expertise and facilities of UniKL in the educational environment and large pool of students to facilitate advancements in the EV industry and to promote their entrepreneurship program whilst propagating climate change awareness in our pursuit of the group’s environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) agenda.

NH EV TECH Managing Director Khoo Chee Kong said they see a synergistic collaboration in the areas of education, R&D, project management, social and culture.

“Together we hope to achieve meaningful advancements to the technical and functional features of the electric motorcycles,” he said.

According to him, this strategic collaboration enables both parties to conduct R&D and provide technical training and industrial exposure to UniKL students thus equipping them with adequate skills to match current job requirements.

“This is in line with Kementerian Kemajuan Desa dan Wilayah’s aspiration to raise the minimum wage of students who have completed the Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) from MYR 1,500 ($330) to MYR 2,000 ($439),

“Additionally, we have crafted entrepreneurship programs for these students who aspire to start a self-sufficient small entrepreneurship,” he added.

NH EV TECH is in the business of manufacturing, assembling, promoting and marketing of all kinds of electric vehicles (EV) and accessories and development of concepts, facilities and fittings using EV battery systems for the delivery industry.

The focus of NH EV TECH is in smart mobility and its applications with safer and more efficient charging in a sustainable and environmentally-friendly model.
