The BMW iX arrived together with the new fast BMW i Charging facility in Kuching, Sarawak
BMW Group Malaysia has begun its electrified expansion in East Malaysia by launching the very first BMW i Charging facility at the Regas Premium Auto Kuching in Sarawak. The DC fast charger was accompanied together by the state's very first BMW iX model. The introduction was officiated by YB Dato Sri Professor Dr. Sim Kui Hian, Deputy Chief Minister and Minister of Public Health, Housing and Local Government of Sarawak.
According to Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia, "2022 will be a momentous year for us at BMW Group Malaysia as we gear towards an electrified offensive that will transform the local automotive landscape to one that is electrifying and sustainable. As such, it is important that we continue working closely with all our stakeholders, especially our dealers, to ensure that essential charging infrastructures are in place to accelerate this shift across the country."
"The arrival of the First-Ever BMW iX, as well as the installation of a new BMW i DC Fast Charging facility at Regas Premium Auto Kuching are testament to this approach, and we are thrilled for our customers in Sarawak to experience Sheer Electric Driving Pleasure at its finest," added Hans.
Jolene Tay, Marketing Manager of Regas Premium Auto added, "As the only authorised BMW dealer in Sarawak, we are honoured to be able to represent the Future of Electrified Mobility here, on behalf of BMW Group Malaysia – with the installation of the new BMW i DC Fast Charger, one of only two DC fast charging facilities currently available in the state. The arrival of the all-electric BMW iX is also timely as customer interest and appreciation for electrified vehicles steadily rise in East Malaysia."
