LAHORE – Dewan Motors, the BMW importers in Pakistan, have inaugurated first public charging station for electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles at the Emporium Mall in Lahore.
Foreseeing the growth potential of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles in the country, Dewan Motors took the first step towards electric mobility in Pakistan by installing a BMW ChargeNow station. This is the first of the three stations to be installed by the end of this year.
‘Today is an important milestone for the BMW Group, not only does it mark the inauguration of the first public BMW charging station in Pakistan but also the first in the entire region. We call this service BMW ChargeNow’ BMW Group Middle East Managing Director Johannes Seibert said.
BMW ChargeNow is a network of charging stations that provide BMW plug-in hybrid and electric vehicle owners with easy, quick and secure charging services.
Dewan Motors investment in this technology is a significant step in supporting the BMW Group’s vision to offer electro-mobility internationally, and in providing easy access to charging stations for customers of our plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles.
Chairman Dewan Motors, Dewan Mohammad Yousuf Farooqui said, ‘The latest BMW plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles offer even greater mobility than the conventional hybrid vehicles making it possible to have everyday motoring purely on electric mode with practically little to no requirement for fossil fuels.’
‘Not only does this result in minimum to zero emissions; but also tremendous fuel savings,’ he added.
By 2030, 60 per cent of the world’s population is expected to live in cities. When it comes to shaping future mobility, the BMW Group considers the entire value chain, offering innovative services and solutions to improve urban mobility.
