With the Malaysian international border officially reopening and the mutual agreement with Singapore to have less travel restrictions between our two countries being enforced yesterday, the Causeway link on the Tebrau Straits has been at its liveliest since in more than 2 years. With many Malaysians in Singapore returning back home and vice versa, it’s an overall emotional and joyous day for both our countries yesterday!

The reopening of the Malaysia-Singapore borders also meant that many Singaporeans can finally go on a holiday in Malaysia and visit their favourite Peninsular Malaysia states by land. However, one Singaporean couple drove across the borders to Malaysia yesterday in the most relaxing and awesome way, which is by leisurely enjoying the views as their Tesla drove for them in auto pilot!

Shared by @sgpikarchu on TikTok, the couple took advantage of the border reopening by testing out their Tesla model 3 Standard’s auto pilot capabilities on Malaysian roads. They shared how they were queuing at the border at 12am on 1 April and was able to cross the custom checkpoint within 45 minutes.


@sgpikarchu Crossed the custom within 45 minutes at midnight. Drove past KL, continuing up north! Go Tesla 🤓 #SgTeslaGoesMsia #EVboleh ♬ Vacation – Dirty Heads

The couple then made their all the way across 6 Malaysian states all the way to Penang where they stayed and had their holiday. Furthermore, the couple also shared the electronic vehicle charging points available throughout the trip in a follow up video as well as a video of their Tesla model 3 charging up.


@sgpikarchu Hope this video is somewhat useful for those driving to to Malaysia with EV. For accurate distance, please use Google Map, the animation is just an estimate. Happy driving! 🤩 #SgTeslaGoesMsia #EVboleh ♬ Electric Love – BØRNS

@sgpikarchu also advised Tesla owners to plan well and find the EV chargers available throughout the route their taking via the PlugShare website or app. They also shared the overall cost for charging that they bear throughout the trip in this video below:


@sgpikarchu Reply to @jasonnwong Cost of ABB charger, JomCharge @ Caltex Ayer Keroh and Porsche @ Eastern & Oriental Hotel. Charges MAY differ for different locations. #SgTeslaGoesMsia #EVboleh ♬ Lemon Tree – Gustixa


@sgpikarchu’s latest TikTok video is of the places that they went in Penang, which is one of the most popular tourism destinations in Malaysia. Well, we hope you enjoyed your holiday here!
