BMW Group Middle East and EMAAR have joined forces in a strategic partnership to expand electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in the UAE. As part of this collaboration, BMW Group Middle East will install over 50 EV charging points across EMAAR’s prime locations, including residential and public areas
The project, conducted through BMW AGMC, aims to electrify more than 25 EMAAR projects during this year’s first phase, with the installation of these charging points. The agreement was reached during COP28 UAE, where BMW Group played a significant role as the VIP e-mobility Provider.
Dr. Hamid Haqparwar, Managing Director of BMW Group Middle East, emphasized the importance of this collaboration in accelerating sustainable mobility in the UAE. By expanding the charging infrastructure in areas where customers reside and commute, both companies are actively shaping the future of sustainable transportation in the region.
As part of its ambitious sustainability goals, BMW Group Middle East has been introducing an increasing number of electric vehicles in the UAE. In 2023, BMW electric vehicles saw a remarkable 400% increase on UAE roads compared to the previous year. Additionally, BMW Group Middle East actively participates in expanding the necessary infrastructure, including home charging options, to support the adoption of EVs. This includes collaborating with the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MOEI) to construct fast-charging stations across the UAE, with plans to expand the EV charging network across federal roads and destinations in the country
