Tian Siang Premium Auto, the dealer representative of the BMW brand in Ipoh and Butterworth and Gurney Paragon Mall recently unveiled two additional BMW i Charging Facilities at the premises of Gurney Paragon Mall, further expanding the growing network of charging facilities in the country.

Mr. Tan Ka Kin, Managing Director of Tian Siang Premium Auto said, “The new charging facilities here at Gurney Paragon Mall marks our first location on the Island of Penang and the second in the state that is fully-equipped and ready to further power the future of mobility in Malaysia, complementing the two BMW i Charging Facilities introduced at the Iconic Hotel in Butterworth, Penang in October last year. As we continue to expand accessibility to charging facilities, I am confident that the adoption of electromobility in the northwestern region of Malaysia will increase in 2020.”
