16:30 JST, May 18, 2022
Chevron (Cambodia) Ltd., the local manager of the Caltex petroleum brand, on April 26 launched the Kingdom’s first publicly available electric vehicle (EV) charging point, along with the southern Phnom Penh filling station where it is located.
The Caltex station — the 50th in Cambodia — is located on Prey Sar Road in Prakar village of Dangkor district’s Prey Sar commune, and comes amid the Kingdom’s increasing adoption of cars and EVs.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Public Works and Transport in mid-March affirmed the Kingdom’s commitment to boosting the use of electric cars and buses to 40%, and motorcycle analogues to 70%, by 2050, in accordance with the government’s long-term carbon-neutral development strategy.
Chevron Cambodia chairman Pongtorn Tangmanuswong said that April 26’s dual inauguration marked a “new phase of development” in the company’s services in the Kingdom, and that the filling station and singular EV charging point would aid the government in stimulating economic growth now and in the future.
