Kuala Lumpur, 30th November 2022 – BMW Group Malaysia further elevates the Premium Electric Ownership Experience with the introduction of BMW Charging, in partnership with local electric vehicle (EV) charging provider – JomCharge.
Sashi Ambi, Head of Corporate Communications and Sustainability at BMW Group Malaysia said, “An integral part of our ongoing efforts to strengthen the electromobility landscape in Malaysia are our strategic partnerships with industry leaders in the charging infrastructure for EVs such as JomCharge as well as ChargEV and Tenaga Nasional Berhad in the coming months. With our shared goals and diversified expertise, we are bringing more key infrastructure and access to these charging platforms to our ever-growing community of existing and potential EV owners here.”
Ir. Lee Yuen How, Managing Director of EV Connection said, “As the operator of the JomCharge network in Malaysia, our goal is to promote greater Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) adoption in Malaysia by offering transformative, customer-centric infrastructure – which is exemplified through our extensive public charging network. This partnership with BMW – a leading premium EV automaker here, enables us to meet our ZEV adoption goals by working together to instil greater confidence amongst the public in our local electromobility ecosystem.”
BMW Charging in partnership with JomCharge brings with it convenient access to more than 100 charging facilities strategically placed throughout the city centre and national highways, alleviating range anxiety and providing BMW EV owners peace-of-mind on every journey.
