Following our report of BMW dealers’ DC fast chargers joining the ChargEV network, BMW Group Malaysia has confirmed the updated, cheaper pay-per-use pricing structure for paid ChargEV members. The company says it aims to provide fair access to the country’s nationwide infrastructure with this move.

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

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

As for BMW and MINI owners, the preferential rates are are:

  • DC 30 and 60 kW charger – RM0.40 per minute of use
  • DC 90 kW – RM0.70 per minute
  • DC 120 kW charger – RM1.00 per minute
  • DC 150 kW charger – RM1.20 per minute
  • DC 180 kW charger – RM1.40 per minute

The sole 90 kW charger at Ingress Auto Damansara gets its own tier costing RM0.90 per minute of charge (RM0.70 per minute for BMW and MINI owners). Meanwhile, the solitary ChargEV dealer exempted from this pricing is Regas Premium Auto in Kuching, which has made its 120 kW charger free of charge to use.

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

The new rates make charging at BMW dealers much cheaper than before. The lower end remains the same, costing RM36 per hour at a 30 kW charger like at Seong Hoe Premium Auto in Melaka, although this pricing now also extends to 60 kW chargers such as the one at Quill Automobiles in Petaling Jaya.

At the top end, you’ll now need to pay RM108 per hour for a 180 kW charger like at Wheelcorp Premium in Setia Alam, down from RM216 per hour previously. For BMW and MINI owners, the per hour costs range between RM24 and RM84, down from RM168 at the top end.

The per hour rate is not fully representative of actual price you’ll pay, because the faster the charger, the shorter the time it takes to fill your battery up. Using the 180 kW charger on a BMW iX, for example, you’ll need just 20 minutes to charge from 20 to 80%, which will now cost RM28 – just RM4 more than what you’d pay to plug it up for an hour at a 30 kW charger, and you won’t even reach the same state of charge at the end with the latter.

Although the lower pricing requires users to pay more for a yearly membership, most EV owners will have subscribed anyway, given that it also allows free use of ChargEV’s numerous AC chargers. The network’s app also enables users to reserve chargers, start and stop charging remotely and view their vehicle’s charging status in real time.
