In addition to charging the vehicle at home, it is now possible – thanks to the development of the ChargeNow mobility service by BMW – to charge BMW electric and plug-in hybrid automobiles while on-the-go anywhere. The fact that the public charging stations of numerous providers have amalgamated to form a huge network also makes life easier.
All the ChargeNow charging stations can be easily located in the navigation system with the help of BMW ConnectedDrive, the BMW Remote app or the ChargeNow website. The car's charging port is located behind a flap on the front left side panel, which is where an LED light ring on the charging port provides information regarding the vehicle's charging status, even from the outside.
Thanks to the development of the ChargeNow card and the intercharge app, drivers can now avail of cashless access and usage of charging stations. An overview of all charging procedures can be accessed via the customer portal at chargenow.com. ChargeNow also ensures that customers have access to a comprehensive overview of all accrued costs. Customers are presented with a consolidated bill at the end of the month and payment is per credit card.
