After announcing that BMW Malaysia sold over 7,500 plug-in hybrids last year which translates to 57 per cent of the brand’s total sales, they have just announced six new BMW i Charging outlets at Bangsar Shopping Centre.
As the leader in e-mobility, this is the brand’s first BMW branded charger in a Kuala Lumpur shopping mall and follows the introduction of similar charging facilities launched last year at the Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Melaka, The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat and WEIL Hotel in Ipoh, as well as the Iconic Hotel in Penang. It is good to note that although these are BMW branded chargers, the brand has iterated that they are open to all plug-in hybrid vehicles and brands.
Of course these are not the only plug-in hybrid chargers available. The brand’s partnership with GreenTech Malaysia allows their plug-in hybrid customers to use any ChargEV facility as part of the BMW ChargeNow service.
“As the country’s leading provider of premium electrified vehicles, we are constantly driving initiatives for innovation, local assemble capabilities, awareness on new and clean technology for the automotive industry as well as helping develop the infrastructure for the electrified premium vehicles in the country. We began working on these initiatives with the Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (Greentech Malaysia) as early as 2015 and we have also developed projects on our own with our network of dealerships across the country,” said Harald Hoelzl, MD of BMW Group Malaysia.
