Tanjung Malim is a town in Muallim District, approximately 70 km north of Kuala Lumpur and lies on the Perak – Selangor state border. "Tanjung Malim" usually refers to the territory under administration of Tanjung Malim District Council which includes the smaller towns adjacent to the town such as Proton City, Behrang, Behrang 2020 and Slim River.

WPS is in the midst of positioning Tanjung Malim as the Southeast Asia leader in the next generation technology of Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV).

Known as NXGV25, this ECP will create a dedicated living laboratory (test bed) for some of the world’s leading companies from the automotive, telecommunication, cybersecurity and technology industries to develop their CAV products and services in a dedicated cluster.

This initiative will accelerate the adoption of CAVs in major metropolitan cities around Malaysia and Southeast Asia as early as 2025.

NXGV25 will eventually also be positioned as a CAV manufacturing and services development centre for businesses that intend to use Malaysia’s competitive economic environment as their platform in Asia region.

An outline of a modern township, Tanjung Malim is where businesses and talents converge, while hospitality and tourism flourish. Tanjung Malim will be at the pinnacle of automotive technology in the region, claiming its position as South East Asia’s Next Generation Automotive Centre.
