The dealer representative for BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad in Negri Sembilan, Millennium Welt, has unveiled its first MINI branded charging facility in Seremban. Working together with Matrix Concepts Holdings Berhad (MCHB), the charging facility is located in Bandar Sri Sendayan, Seremban.
The introduction of the new MINI charging facility will further electrify the ecosystem for electric vehicle owners in the areas around Seremban, and provide greater access to charging infrastructure to developing townships nearby.
“We are thrilled to introduce the first facilities for the charging of EVs for the brand MINI in Seremban, supporting the growing need for more charging infrastructure in the area, in light of the increasing positive reception for electrified vehicles amongst our customers here. To date, we at Millennium Welt have already delivered over 140 electrified BMW and MINI vehicles, and we hope that with better access to charging facilities in the area, customers will have greater confidence in the shift to electromobility,” said Bryan Wong, Managing Director of Millennium Welt.
Carmen Loo, Matrix Concepts Group General Manager of Corporate Secretarial, Governance and Sustainability added, “Our collaboration with Millennium Welt is the perfect fit as we share the same goals for sustainability. The installation of the MINI Charging Facility here at d’Tempat Country Club – which has also received the Gold Green Building Index Certification, is part of our larger vision to promote sustainable transportation and reduce our carbon footprint. Our goal is to foster a more sustainable future for ourselves and our future generations.”
The charging facility is fitted with an 11kWh Wallbox powered by ChargeEV. The new charging facility from Millennium Welt is also part of BMW Group Malaysia’s strategy to develop the infrastructure needed for the charging of electric vehicles, together with like-minded local partners, dealers and key charging providers.
So far, BMW Group Malaysia has been involved in the establishment of over 670 charging facilities for EV owners, with access to over 360 of these facilities provided through partnerships with ChargEV and Yinson Greentech. The partnership with JomCharge also enables access to over 65 charging facilities, as well as Gentari with approximately 150 facilities. Over 100 BMW i and MINI charging facilities are also available at most authorised dealerships, as well as partnering venues across the country, with more to come as part of the strategic infrastructure expansion plan set for the year ahead.
The charging facility is open daily to the public from 9:00 AM to 11:00 PM, with a standard rate of RM5 for every 20 minutes of use.
