BMW i Charging Station
The BMW i Charging Station is a home charging station for private end customers that allows them to charge their BMW i extremely quickly, safely, and easily. Compared with the standard charging cable supplied, which can be connected to any standard power socket, the charging time is substantially reduced to approximately 3 to 6 hours (dependent on the version purchased; available in 16 A and 30 A).
The BMW i Charging Station is also manufactured using a high proportion of recyclable materials.

After the BMW i Charging Station is purchased, the installation service will mount the unit professionally at your home.
The sustainability of electric car technology is inextricably linked with green energy. Combined with a green electricity offer which allows you to offset the power required to charge your BMW i3 with renewably generated electricity, electromobility becomes a completely emission-free driving pleasure.
The product portfolio of BMW Green Energy ranges from the procurement of renewable energies from ecological electricity providers to energy generation using proprietary “My Green Energy” solutions.
BMW creates innovative solutions for city e-mobility-especially for all those drivers without their own charging options: They have access to flexible and time-saving parking and charging options in public car garages. Thanks to networked BMW i Navigation with BMW ConnectedDrive, the BMW i3 knows where the nearest charging station is, indicates whether it is available-and incorporates it into your route if necessary. So BMW i drivers can easily find one of the increasingly common public charging stations in the city and top up their battery. In 2015, more level 3 DC fast charging stations will be installed across Canada. BMW i customers can find DC fast charging stations through the BMW i Remote App.
ChargeNow* is a mobility service from BMW i and the largest association of mobile charging station providers. The charging stations in the ChargeNow network are displayed using the BMW i ConnectedDrive services in the navigation unit, making it especially quick and easy to find and use public charging stations. Payment is simple and cashless via the ChargeNow card.
* ChargeNow is not available in all markets, please contact your BMW i Retailer for further information.
ParkNow LongTerm is designed specifically for BMW i owners who lack access to residential or workplace parking and charging options. Whether for all day parking, overnight, or only during working hours, BMW i partner garages offer parking spaces with charging stations, on a long-term basis.
