BMW Group Malaysia today announced that it sold more than 1,600 EVs comprising BMW, MINI & BMW Motorrad models in the first eight months of this year.
Out of all the models, the BMW iX is the best-seller with 880 units sold between January and August, followed by the iX1 with 291 units sold, the i7 with 158 units, and the iX3 with 108 units.
To commemorate the achievement, BMW Group Malaysia is collaborating with local charging providers, ChargEV, JomCharge and Gentari to offer exclusive unlimited-charging packages for BMW and MINI EV owners in Malaysia.
From 1st October to 31st December 2023, the first 200 registrants of BMW and MINI EV owners can purchase the package for RM2,400 and RM1,800 respectively from any of the aforementioned charging providers.
The package provides unlimited charging at all ChargEV or JomCharge and Gentari facilities nationwide for 12 months upon activation and is only valid for use by the specific EV that was registered during sign-up.
Through BMW Group Malaysia’s strategic partnerships with key local charging solution providers, as well as their network of authorised dealers and partnering venues across the country, the premium automaker has made over 1,000 charging facilities available to EV owners in Malaysia.
Building upon Gentari’s success in establishing widespread EV charging infrastructure nationwide over the past year, BMW and Gentari have introduced ‘Charge Go’, which is a mobile EV charging service that can provide on-the-go DC fast-charging.
“We are thrilled to bring our mobile charging vehicle concept – one that we unveiled earlier this year, to life with Gentari. Our partnerships with key players like them underscore our belief that industry-wide collaboration is the engine driving the transformation towards an Electric Future.”
“We hope to inspire more players in this field to elevate their commitment to electrification, collectively enriching the local EV ecosystem. This collaboration will be made available towards end of 2023,” said Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia.”
