JEJU — BMW Korea donated 30 charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs) to this southern resort island Tuesday as part of efforts to help promote the commercialization of green cars here.

It shows the German automaker’s commitment to the local market, as it is the first automaker to directly provide a local government with public charging devices for EVs.

BMW officials also stressed that EVs are critical to the preservation of the environment, especially a popular tourism destination like Jeju. The island is Korea’s first and only UNESCO World Natural Heritage site and it was also named one of the world’s Seven Wonders of Nature” in 2011.

“I know we all want to preserve amazing places like this,” Bill McAndrews, vice-president of communications strategy, corporate and market communication, said during a donation ceremony at the office of the Jeju Special Self-Governing Province.
