BMW Group Malaysia has joined hands with local electric vehicle (EV) charging provider JomCharge to introduce BMW Charging, a program aimed at increasing accessibility to charging infrastructure for electrified BMW vehicle owners.
Sashi Ambi, Head of Corporate Communications and Sustainability at BMW Group Malaysia said, “An integral part of our ongoing efforts to strengthen the electromobility landscape in Malaysia is our strategic partnerships with industry leaders in the charging infrastructure for EVs such as JomCharge as well as ChargeEV 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.”

Ir. Lee Yuen How, Managing Director of EV Connection said, “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.
How adds, "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.”
BMW Charging in partnership with JomCharge will offer BMW EV owners convenient access to more than 100 charging facilities strategically placed 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.
