BMW Group Malaysia To Establish Charging Network Across The Country

BMW Group Malaysia is committed to establishing a charging network in the country. A chain of fast chargers would benefit BMW i electric vehicle owners and address any range anxiety issues. The first of its new DC Fast Chargers is installed at Auto Bavaria Ara Damansara and is available for public use. This is the first of many planned chargers at BMW i dealers across the country.

We partnered with GreenTech Malaysia from the get-go to ensure a functioning ecosystem for electromobility to thrive in, and are continuing to deliver on that commitment alongside our network of dedicated dealers – not just for BMW and MINI owners, but for electric vehicle owners in Malaysia. We are confident that this move will be mutually beneficial in ensuring charging infrastructures are more accessible across the country, and help alleviate the concerns of potential EV owners in Malaysia such as range anxiety,” said Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia.

BMW Group Malaysia had been at the forefront of electrified mobility in Malaysia since 2015, when it first introduced BMW i. Since then, it has delivered over 21,000 electrified BMW and MINI to local owners.

Our loyal customers will now also be able to visit our dealerships and receive the full Electric Ownership Experience, as we work in tandem with BMW Group Malaysia to accelerate the shift to electromobility in Malaysia.”

Naturally, the establishment of this new charging network is a lead up to the impending arrival of the new BMW i EV fleet, with the availability of Rapid-Charging DC Chargers for quick on-the-go charging at selected dealerships nationwide.
