Midrand. As part of its holistic approach to electro-mobility – typified by 360° ELECTRIC product and service packages – BMW Group South Africa is continuing to expand public charging infrastructure in Cape Town for electric vehicles (EV) and plug-in electric hybrid vehicles (PHEV), with the introduction of a new charging station in the Constantia Village shopping complex.
The new charging station is part of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in 2015 by BMW Group South Africa and Nissan South Africa to expand charging infrastructure for EV’s and PHEV’s throughout the country.
Under the MoU three charging stations located at the Victoria and Alfred (V&A) Waterfront in Cape Town were introduced in 2016. The charging stations supplement the stations already installed by the BMW Group across 31 BMW dealerships countrywide, at the Melrose Arch Precinct in Johannesburg and at BMW Group South Africa’s Head Office in Midrand to make public charging easily accessible for customers who purchase EV and PHEV models in South Africa.
The Constantia Village AC fast charging station offers Type 2 connections that can be used by the BMW i3 and i8, making it future proof and cater for future EV and PHEV models.
In 2016, the BMW i3 continued to be world’s best-selling EV in its segment on a global and local scale. On the other hand, more BMW i8 models were sold worldwide than other hybrid sports cars produced. With its future-proof concept the BMW i8 is even exceeding traditional sports car concepts already.
