BMW Group Malaysia has partnered with local electric vehicle (EV) charging provider JomCharge to introduce BMW Charging.
The collaboration will allow for more convenient access to more than 100 charging facilities spread throughout the city centre and national highways, alleviating range anxiety and providing BMW EV owners peace-of-mind on every journey. The network includes the infrastructures owned by Gentari – the Green Mobility and Clean Energy division of Petronas.
Sashi Ambi, BMW Group Malaysia’s head of corporate communications and sustainability, commented on the company’s plans moving forward to accommodate EV ownership. "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 Bhd 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," he continued.
To date, BMW Group Malaysia has provided BMW and MINI EV owners with access to over 550 charging facilities nationwide, powered by industry partners such as JomCharge and Gentari, with 26 charging facilities powered by ChargEV and Yinson GreenTech at 17 Starbucks stores within Klang Valley, Penang, Melaka and Johor.
