In March this year, Scentre Group partnered with BMW to launch electric vehicle charging stations in ten Westfield shopping centres across the Eastern Seaboard. The stations can be used by any electric vehicle and are in centre as part of a three year partnership supported by valet sponsorship and gifting, in-centre activations and communication of the initiative via Westfield’s SmartScreens, SuperScreens and digital platforms.
Tim Roberts, General Manager Leasing, Scentre Group says, “We’re very excited to partner with BMW Group Australia to bring such a comprehensive network of electric vehicle charging stations to our customers. This is all about convenience for the growing number of electric vehicle drivers in our local communities. EV drivers will be able to identify charging station locations in our centres via the ChargePoint app, online or through their BMW navigation system.”
Marc Werner, Chief Executive Officer of BMW Group Australia, is pleased to be part of a program that facilitates this growth and delivers additional EV infrastructure to Australian customers. “The new Westfield charging station locations is another avenue for BMW to provide mobility solutions to our customers, as BMW i electric vehicles gain momentum in the Australian market” said Werner.
