A new MINI Charging facility for electric vehicles (EVs) has been opened in Sanctuary Mall @ Eco Sanctuary, introduced by Wheelcorp Premium. The new charging facility comprises two parking lots, a 50-kW DC charger with 2 DC holders (CCS2 and CHAdeMO), and a 22-kW AC charger (Type 2).
The chargers at the MINI charging facility are provided by JomCharge. Now open to the public, rates for both the AC and DC chargers are at RM1.20 per minute. Precisely, the chargers are located at Sanctuary Mall @ Eco Sanctuary, Persiaran Eco Sanctuary, 8/3, Eco Santuari in Selangor.
Commenting on the new charging facility, Wheelcorp Premium Managing Director, Jayden Liew said, “With the rising uptake of electrified vehicles in Malaysia, we – the providers of these automobiles, consider it one of our main responsibilities to ensure that sufficient infrastructure is in place to support this demand. The positive reception for Electrified Mobility in recent times, bolstered by the many initiatives by our local government, has been a welcome sight for us; and we are committed to developing the EV landscape further for our customers, alongside BMW Group Malaysia.”
The new charging facility from Wheelcorp Premium is also part of BMW Group Malaysia’s strategy to develop the infrastructure needed for the charging of electric vehicles. So far, over 670 charging facilities have been made available by BMW Group Malaysia for EV owners here thus far, with access to over 360 of these facilities provided through partnerships with ChargEV and Yinson Greentech.
The partnership with JomCharge also enables access to over 70 charging facilities, and Gentari with approximately 150 facilities. Over 100 BMW i and MINI charging facilities are also available at most authorised dealerships, as well as partnering venues across the country.
Eco Sanctuary Assistant General Manager, Max Leong Yew Mun said, “Sustainability is EcoWorld’s number one core value and we are always on the lookout to actively engage with organisations that share common sustainability goals. By supporting Wheelcorp Premium’s drive to roll out more charging facilities, we are also making good progress on our own ESG goals, which is to ensure that all EcoWorld projects have at least one EV charging station.”
