BMW electrifies Kuching with arrival of first BMW iX, new 180 kW DC fast charger

The fully-electric BMW iX has just landed in East Malaysia today, with a brand-new BMW i Charging DC fast charger at the Regas Premium Auto Kuching showroom to welcome its arrival.

The new charging facility, launched and officiated today by the Sarawak’s Deputy Chief Minister and Minister of Public Health, Housing, and Local Government, Dato Sim Kui Hian, will be able to charge electric vehicles at speeds of up to 180 kW, and is one of only two DC fast chargers available in the state.

BMW Group Malaysia Managing Director, Hans de Visser said, “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,” de Visser added.

“This development of better infrastructure to accelerate the uptake of electromobility amongst motorists in Sarawak is a move that we warmly welcome from all stakeholders in the industry. The confidence shown by BMW Group Malaysia and Regas Group on the viability of electrifying the automotive industry here aligns with our goals for sustainable mobility as well, and we hope to see more automakers taking inspiration from this to also work collaboratively in bringing up the ecosystem for electromobility here in Sarawak,” said Dato Sim.

Regas Premium Auto Marketing Manager, Jolene Tay 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 all-new BMW iX will be on display at the Regas Premium Auto Kuching showroom from today until the 2nd March of 2022. More information can be found on the company’s website, linked here.
