BMW Group Malaysia, the official distributor of BMW and MINI vehicles in Malaysia, has added six new BMW i Charging Facilities at Bangsar Shopping Centre in Kuala Lumpur.
“As the country’s leading provider of premium electrified vehicles, we are constantly driving initiatives for innovation, local assembly capabilities, awareness of new and clean technology for the automotive industry, as well as helping develop the infrastructure for electrified premium vehicles in the country.
“We began working on these initiatives with the Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (GreenTech Malaysia) as early as 2015. We have developed projects on our own with our network of dealerships across the country,” said its managing director, Harald Hoelzl, at the unveiling ceremony.
This follows the introduction of new BMW i Charging Facilities at Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Melaka, The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat in Ipoh, the Iconic Hotel in Penang, as well at WEIL hotel in Ipoh last year.
The group’s portfolio of Visionary Mobility with the BMW iPerformance vehicles are supported by ChargEV platform through its partnership with GreenTech Malaysia. The BMW ChargeNow service is offered as part of the BMW 360 electric programme that provides access to partner charging facilities like ChargEV. Customers can enjoy 24/7 support and access to all charging locations in ChargEV’s growing network nationwide.
At the event, BMW Group Malaysia announced its last year’s sales performance, which broke the sales record for eight consecutive times, with 14,338 vehicle sold.
“This reinforces Malaysia’s position as a key market in the region for the BMW Group and we are truly humbled by this achievement,” Hoelzl said.
He said the group’s portfolio of Visionary Mobility vehicles had more than 57 per cent of deliveries last year, with more than 7,500 Plug-in Hybrid variants of BMW and MINI sold.
