Growing the network of charging facilities in the country is an important step in the promotion of hybrid and electric vehicles as potential customers will feel assured when they know that there are many places they can recharge their vehicles. Helping in this effort is BMW Group Malaysia which has set up 6 new BMW i Charging stations at the Bangsar Shopping Centre carpark in Kuala Lumpur.
“As the country’s leading provider of premium electrified vehicles, we are constantly driving initiatives for innovation, local assembly capabilities, awareness on new and clean technology for the automotive industry as well as helping develop the infrastructure for electrified premium vehicles in the country. We began working on these initiatives with the Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (GreenTech Malaysia) as early as 2015 and we have also developed projects on our own with our network of dealerships across the country.” said Harald Hoelzl, MD of BMW Group Malaysia
BMW Malaysia’s initiative marks another important step in its efforts in fostering the country’s shift to Electro-Mobility. This follows the introduction of similar facilities in Melaka, Ipoh and Penang.
The company’s portfolio of Visionary Mobility with the BMW iPerformance vehicles are also supported by the ChargEV platform through its partnership with GreenTech Malaysia. The BMW ChargeNow service, which is offered as part of the BMW 360° ELECTRIC programme provides straightforward access to partner charging facilities like ChargEV, where customers can enjoy 24/7 support and access to all charging locations in ChargEV’s growing network nationwide.
