BMW adds new DC fast chargers in Penang and Ipoh – 120 kW, open for public use



BMW Group Malaysia has unveiled two new DC fast chargers in Penang and Perak in partnership with its dealer, Tian Siang Premium Auto. The DC fast chargers are part of the company’s charging infrastructure expansion strategy, and are located at the Tian Siang Premium Auto Butterworth and Tian Siang Premium Auto Ipoh dealerships respectively.

“Our expansion plans for our network of charging infrastructure in Malaysia has been a success thus far, having made available 8 BMW i Charging facilities at various authorised BMW dealerships in the first quarter of 2022 alone,” said BMW Group Malaysia Managing Director, Hans de Visser.

“By tackling common pain points of electric vehicle (EV) ownership in tandem with our electro-offensive this year, we are hopeful that the local perspective on electromobility will shift for the better,” he said.

Tian Siang Premium Auto Dealer Principal, Tan Ka Kin added, “As an authorised BMW i dealer in the northern region of Malaysia, we are thrilled to provide even more accessibility to not only our customers but the growing community of EV owners in Penang and Perak.

“The addition of these new DC Fast Chargers at our own dealerships allows us to further deliver the Premium Ownership Experience to our customers here, on top of the many BMW i charging facilities we have previously made available, in partnership with BMW Group Malaysia, across the northern region.”

The new DC fast chargers are rated at an output of 120 kW, and features dual CCS Type 2 outlets, which means two electric vehicles can be charged at the same time. At full speed, it should be able to recharge the BMW iX and iX3 (both maxes out at 150 kW) from 10-80% in under 40 minutes.

Just like the previous ones unveiled at Ara Damansara and Kuching recently, the new DC Fast Chargers at Butterworth and Ipoh will also be open to use for the public.
