BMW Group Malaysia has partnered with JomCharge, the local EV charging provider, to offer the BMW Charging package for its customers to have a premium electric ownership experience.
The BMW Charging package, electrified by JomCharge, gives BMW i EV owners convenient access to over 100 charging facilities strategically placed throughout the city centre and national highways. Having easy access to this facility will alleviate any range anxiety and provide EV owners with peace-of-mind on every journey. This network also includes the infrastructure owned by Gentari – the Green Mobility and Clean Energy division of Petronas.
“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,” Sashi Ambi, Head of Corporate Communications and Sustainability at BMW Group Malaysia said. For a complete Premium Electric Ownership Experience, all new and existing BMW EV owners are entitled to register for the BMW Charging package. For a one-time fee of RM640, this 1-year non-renewable subscription comes with complimentary JomCharge credits worth RM160 to provide a total package value of RM800. Once you have registered, you will be able to enjoy this package as a pay-per-use service with an additional 10% discount on each charging transaction for a year.
“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,” said Ir. Lee Yuen How, Managing Director of EV Connection.
