Premium automaker commences installation of DC Fast Chargers at BMW i dealers for public use, starting with Auto Bavaria Ara Damansara.
Petaling Jaya, 16th December 2021 – BMW Group Malaysia today introduced the new DC Fast Chargers installed at Auto Bavaria Ara Damansara for public users, the first of many of which are set to be installed at BMW i dealers across the country. Leading up to the arrival of the next-generation BMW i fleet, the premium automaker remains committed to accelerating availability of charging infrastructures in Malaysia, along with Rapid-Charging DC Chargers for quick on-the-go charging at selected dealerships nationwide.
Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “We have been driving the change towards electrification not only with our growing portfolio of electrified vehicles, but also by expanding the local charging infrastructure network 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.”
Vi Thim Juan, Managing Director of Auto Bavaria, added, “Much like the BMW Group, we have long shared the belief that the future is electric, and we are honoured to be amongst the first dealerships to bring this vision into reality by installing the DC Fast Chargers on our premises for public use. 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.”
BMW Group Malaysia has been at the forefront of electrified mobility in Malaysia since 2015, the year in which BMW i was first introduced to the country, and has since delivered over 21,000 electrified BMW and MINI locally.
