New Mini EV charging facility opens in Penang at Gurney Plaza
Auto Bavaria has introduced the first Mini EV charging facility in the northern region located in Penang.
The Mini charging facility is located at Gurney Plaza Penang (sixth floor) and there are three units of the Mini Gen 3 Wallbox chargers available for use and yes, they are open for public use.
These wallbox chargers offer up to 22kW of AC charging for those looking to get your charge on for both fully-electric cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV). There are currently four EV charging stations at the location, and three of them are nicely dressed in the Mini livery. All are open for use from 10am to 10pm daily.
According to Vi Thim Juan, Managing Director, Sime Darby Auto Bavaria, “In 2022, the Mini Electric accounted for over 30% of the Mini models delivered by Auto Bavaria Penang, demonstrating a growing demand for Electric Vehicles in these parts of Malaysia. The new facilities for charging Mini vehicles at Gurney Plaza aim to support this growing demand for electric vehicles as well as offer more access to public charging in the northern states.”
“Gurney Plaza is the ideal location for our charging facility as it is a popular mall strategically located in the heart of Penang, making the location convenient for EV owners to charge their vehicles while they are out and about shopping at the mall,” added Vi.
