Alor Setar, 3rd August 2023 — Lee Motors Auto Care, the leading representative for the BMW brand in the State of Kedah and its surrounding areas, partners with POWERBEE, a wholly owned subsidiary of clean energy solutions provider, Solarvest Holdings Berhad, to offer new BMW Electric Vehicle customers an exclusive solar energy solution, complementing their premium ownership experience. The partnership aims to support new BMW Electric Vehicle owners with a more environmentally-friendly and sustainable journey. Customers will enjoy a complimentary 4.5 kWp rooftop solar PV system worth RM22,000 from the Solarvest Group.
Eugene Lee, Managing Director of Lee Motors Auto Care, announced the partnership and offering saying, “As the representative of the brand BMW in Kedah, we are committed to providing our customers with a premium ownership experience through our products and responsible charging capabilities. Our partnership with Solarvest Group reinforces our commitment to providing innovative and sustainable solutions, supporting state-of-the-art vehicles and EV charging technology for an exceptional ownership experience.”
Meanwhile, Davis Chong Chun Shiong, spokesperson from Solarvest Holdings Berhad emphasised the importance of sustainability in EV deployment, stating, “To truly achieve sustainability, it is crucial to support Electric Vehicles with responsible and renewable sources of energy. At POWERBEE, our commitment lies in providing EV charging solutions powered by 100% renewable energy. With a 4.5kWp rooftop solar PV system, on average, we can generate enough electricity needed for five full charges per month on the BMW i7, equivalent to a traveling distance of 3,125km, all powered by renewable energy. Through this partnership, we are exploring further collaborations with Lee Motors to increase EV adoption in Malaysia and ensure that the transition to electric mobility is supported with green energy.”
By integrating a rooftop solar PV system, new owners of the BMW EVs from Lee Motors Auto Care can effectively harness renewable energy sources to power their EVs, managing their carbon footprint better as well as creating more responsible value for their premium ownership experience.
Solarvest Holdings Berhad has also announced its decision to transition its corporate vehicle fleet to Electric Vehicles, aiming to set an example for like-minded organisations to adopt this technology switch for a more responsible and sustainable deployment of clean energy solutions.
