Emaar and BMW reach prime residential and public areas charging deal

BMW Group Middle East to accelerate its growing number of electric vehicles in the UAE at an accelerated pace on back of deal

BMW Group Middle East and EMAAR are set to expand the EV charging points in the UAE with the installation of charging points across EMAAR’s prime locations, including residential and public areas.

The project will be conducted through BMW AGMC and aims to electrify over 25 EMAAR projects this year, with more than 50 charging points scheduled to be installed during the first phase of partnership.

The agreement was reached during COP28 UAE – where BMW Group participated as the VIP e-Mobility Provider, said the two parties.

“Our collaboration with EMAAR is yet another milestone as we aim to accelerate the transition towards sustainable mobility in the UAE,” said Dr Hamid Haqparwar, Managing Director of BMW Group Middle East.

“The collaboration represents our joint efforts to expand the charging infrastructure in locations where our customers reside and commute. We remain committed in playing a direct role in shaping the future of sustainable mobility in the UAE, and I am glad to see this shared dedication with EMAAR in achieving this vision.”

Ahmed Almatrooshi, Emaar Properties Executive Board Member and Chairman of Emaar Foundation, stated that collaboration not only reinforces the developer’s commitment to environmental stewardship but also enhances the living experience of its residents and visitors.

“By integrating state-of-the-art EV charging infrastructure across our properties, we are contributing to the nation’s green mobility objectives and COP28’s sustainability goals,” he added. “This is a step forward in our continuous endeavour to help build a more sustainable and connected future for all.”

As part of its ambitious sustainability goals, BMW Group Middle East continues to introduce a growing number of electric vehicles in the UAE at an accelerated pace.

In comparison to 2022, BMW electric vehicles saw an increase of 400% on UAE roads last year.

In parallel, BMW Group Middle East is directly involved in the expansion of the required infrastructure and offering customers convenient home charging.

This includes supporting the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MOEI) in the construction of Fast charging stations across the UAE. Under this plan, the EV charging network will be expanded across federal roads and destinations in the country and includes 30 Fast chargers and 150 AC chargers across all Emirates.
