NewMotion and BMW Group collaborate on charging offer for BMW Group customers and dealerships in Germany
BMW Group customers and dealerships will be able to benefit from NewMotion’s solutions for workplace and home charging
Berlin/Munich. Germany, November 23, 2020 – NewMotion, leading European smart EV charging solutions provider, and BMW Group will collaborate on home charging solutions and services for their customers in Germany. With this partnership, both companies combine their strengths to accelerate the e-mobility adoption in Germany and enable their customers to benefit from the recently announced subsidy of 900 EUR for private charge points.
When buying or leasing an electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid, BMW and MINI customers will be able to purchase a smart charge point from NewMotion, and benefit from their complete service, which includes installation, after-care as well as customer support. The purchase and installation of smart charge points is subsidised by the German government with 900 Euro, if the customer uses green power supply for charging, e.g. from Shell Energy, which is also part of the offer with BMW. (Detailed conditions for the subsidy can be found on kfw.de.) NewMotion also offers services to existing BMW and MINI customers. EV drivers who have purchased an electrified vehicle in the past and want a smart home charge point or a BMW charging product can also rely on NewMotion for the complete installation and service package
NewMotion's smart charging solutions and services offer a smooth transition to e-mobility. NewMotion charge points are cloud-connected and provide many smart services, for example complete transparency into charging, the charging behaviour and costs. This helps drivers reduce the total costs of ownership, which is one of the hurdles for EV adoption. NewMotion is a pioneer in development and installation of smart charging solutions and is part of the Shell Group since 2017. This means customers can benefit from additional EV charging services. Shell is committed to enabling the energy transition and providing customers with convenient and easy charging through its growing network and investments, including fast charging at Shell forecourts and potentially other facilities in the future including charging hubs.
Partnership drives e-mobility in Germany
“We are delighted that BMW Group has chosen NewMotion as its preferred charging partner for charging solutions for their customers. There is a growing number of EVs on the roads, and to keep EV charging easy and accessible, all efforts to scale up for e-mobility should be increased. The partnership with BMW helps EV drivers to a seamless switch to e-mobility and further drives the energy transition.”,says Klaus Schmidt-Dannert, Country Manager Germany at NewMotion.
