Following our report that BMW dealers’ DC fast chargers have joined the ChargEV network, BMW Group Malaysia has confirmed an updated and cheaper pay-per-use pricing structure for paying ChargEV members. The company said the move was aimed at providing equitable access to the country’s nationwide infrastructure.

Again, you need to subscribe to an annual ChargEV membership (RM240 per year) to enjoy the new rates, which have mostly been halved and, as before, lower rates for BMW and MINI drivers. The revised pricing structure is as follows:

  • DC 30 and 60 kW chargers – RM0.60 per minute usage
  • DC 90 and 120 kW chargers – RM1.40 per minute
  • DC 150 kW charger – RM1.50 per minute
  • DC 180 kW charger – RM1.80 per minute

The discounted prices for BMW and MINI owners are:

  • DC 30 and 60 kW chargers – RM0.40 per minute used
  • DC 90 and 120 kW chargers – RM1.00 per minute
  • DC 150 kW charger – RM1.20 per minute
  • DC 180 kW charger – RM1.40 per minute

Unlike previously reported, Ingress Auto Damansara’s only 90 kW charger is combined with a 120 kW charger for RM1.40 per minute (RM1.00 per minute for BMW and MINI owners). The only ChargeEV dealer not limited by this pricing is Regas Premium Auto in Kuching, which has made its 120 kW charger free.

The list above applies to all BMW dealerships with DC chargers, with the exception of Auto Bavaria, which still uses its own payment method (and therefore its own pricing). A spokesperson told us that the brand’s largest Malaysian dealership will be on another charging platform, with details to be announced later.

The new rates make it much cheaper for BMW dealers to charge than before. The low end remains the same at RM36 per hour for a 30 kW charger at Seong Hoe Premium Auto in Melaka, although this price is now also extended to 60 kW chargers such as those from Quill Automobiles in Petaling Jaya.

At the top end, you will now pay RM108 per hour for a 180 kW charger such as Setia Alam’s Wheelcorp Premium, down from RM216 per hour previously. For BMW and MINI owners, the hourly rate is between RM24 and RM84, down from the top price of RM168.

The hourly rate doesn’t exactly represent the actual price you’ll pay, because the faster the charger, the less time it will take to fully charge the battery. For example, with a 180 kW charger on a BMW iX, you can go from 20% to 80% in just 20 minutes, and now it costs only RM28 – just RM4 more than an hour’s charge. On a 30 kW charger, you It won’t even reach the same state of charge as the latter at the end.

While the lower price requires users to pay more for an annual membership, most EV owners subscribe anyway, as it also allows free use of ChargEV’s many AC chargers. The network’s app also enables users to pre-order chargers, start and stop charging remotely, and view the vehicle’s charging status in real-time.
