BMW to build 360,000 charging points in China to juice EV sales

German automaker intends to better compete against likes of Tesla

HONG KONG -- BMW plans to add 360,000 electric vehicle charging points across China this year as it aims to become a major EV player in the world's largest car market.

BMW said today it will collaborate with local partners, including EV charging infrastructure provider, TGood to build the charging points, of which 150,000 will support fast-charging modes. Other automakers' vehicles will also be able to use them. The company did not say how much the project will cost.
