A BMW plug-in hybrid vehicle can be recharged from an ordinary household socket – however, it is advisable to have the suitability (continuous load capability) of the socket in question checked by a certified specialist. This check of the socket or the installation and commissioning of a BMW i Wallbox (this allows BMW plug-in hybrid vehicles to be charged with a maximum of 3.7 kW) can, for example, be performed by a qualified electrician from the BMW i installation partner.
The vehicle can also be charged while out and about. The “ChargeNow” programme offers access to a constantly growing network of public charging stations. Thanks to the “ParkNow” system, BMW customers can now find long-term parking and recharging facilities in multi-storey car park near their residence or workplace.
If you would like to find out where there is a charging station in your neighbourhood, there are various options:
− You can look it up in the navigation system of your BMW plug-in hybrid vehicle. Thanks to the point-of-interest search in the BMW ConnectedDrive App, you have direct access to all charging stations in your surroundings.
− You can search on your smartphone. This is child’s play using the ConnectedDrive App for plug-in hybrids.
− You will find all BMW i partner charging stations on the ChargeNow website.
