Charging the BMW i3.

An innovative charging concept provides for a new dimension of electromobility: The BMW i3 can not only be charged quickly, easily, and conveniently at home using the BMW i Charging Station or the home charging cable, it can also be charged on the go from a continuously increasing number of public charging stations. The BMW i3 finds these public charging stations easily via innovative BMW ConnectedDrive Services, such as the fully networked BMW i Navigation with display of the dynamic range and charging stations.


If you have your own parking space at home, you can easily charge the BMW i3 using the optional BMW i Charging Station. This charging station, which is mounted to the wall of the house or the garage, not only completes the unique design of the BMW i vehicles, it also charges the BMW i3 five times faster than the standard included charging cable – thus charging the BMW i3 completely in 3 or 6 hours, depending on the version purchased. The BMW i Charging Station, including individual installation service, is also available from BMW directly.

  • BMW i Charging Station

    The BMW i Charging Station is a home charging station that allows the private user to charge the BMW i3 quickly and easily. Depending on the available power network at the installation site, a maximum charging power of 7.2 kW can be reached. If the power network is optimally developed, the BMW i3 can be charged up to 80% of the maximum capacity in under 3 hours.

    With economic and high-quality BMW i design, the BMW i Charging Station matches the BMW i3 perfectly. Like the vehicle itself, the BMW i Charging Station is largely manufactured from recyclable materials. If desired, the installation can be handled by the BMW i Charging Station Installation Service.

  • Installation Service

    BMW i offers an attractive all-round service for the installation of the BMW i Charging Station. Your BMW i Retailer can help you determine whether the installation of a BMW i Charging Station is possible at your residence. The BMW i Charging Station installation check, which you can order directly from your BMW i Retailer, will ensure that your electrical installation and application situation can allow the installation of a BMW i Charging Station. The last step is the installation of the charging station via the BMW i Charging Station Installation Service, which you can order from your BMW i Retailer.

  • Green Energy

    A green energy contract gives you the ability to purchase power for charging your BMW i3 from regenerative sources – so that not only every journey, but also every charging procedure runs completely emission-free. With the product portfolio of BMW Green Energy, you can take advantage of these options very easily and conveniently from one source. From the switch-over to sustainably generated power, e.g. wind or water power, to your own energy production through "My Green Energy" solutions at your home, e.g.: a home solar system.




BMW i has created an innovative concept that also offers optimal charging options for the BMW i3 underway. In addition to ChargeNow – a mobility service from BMW i and the largest association of mobile charging station providers1 – this concept also includes semi-public parking options for long-term parkers where the BMW i3 can be charged, for example, in parking garages. The navigation of the BMW i3 supports you during the search for suitable charging options, which are displayed in the vehicle, on the BMW i Remote App, and in the BMW ConnectedDrive Internet portal2 and are taken into account by the range assistant. The use is cashless and possible using a centrally valid access card, the ChargeNow3 card.
