    This is very straightforward using the My BMW App* on your smartphone or you can check the current charge level and available range of your BMW electric car and plug-in hybrid in the vehicle itself.

  • What are the optimal battery charge levels for my BMW electric car?

    The ideal charge level is between 20 percent and 80 percent. Although lower or higher charge levels are possible, the range between 20% and 80% is recommended for optimising the life of your battery. In your vehicle menu, you can easily and conveniently set your charging target at 80 percent and don't have to worry about anything else.


    A charging target of 80 percent covers all of your everyday routes. If you do actually need greater range occasionally, you can simply set a higher charging target.

  • What should I look out for when charging my BMW plug-in hybrid?

    As its name suggests, a plug-in hybrid can be charged from a socket, a Wallbox or at a public charging station. The maximum efficiency of a plug-in hybrid is achieved with a fully charged battery; which means that a charging facility should be available at home and at the workplace. Charge your BMW plug-in hybrid as often as possible so that you can always make full use of the additional electric drive.

  • What do I have to look out for when charging from the socket?

    The standard charging cable with a 2.3 kW capacity is often supplied as standard with your electric BMW.* Five metres in length, it generally ensures access to a domestic socket. Use of an extension cable and multi-plug connectors is prohibited. A charging rate of 1.3 kW at 6 A is set as the default.

    You can quite simply book our installation service along with your Wallbox. This guarantees that your Wallbox is installed and set up safely and professionally. Incidentally, the service can also be booked for our efficient industrial socket if you wish to use your Flexible Fast Charger with the appropriate adapter at home.

  • What is the difference between charging with alternating current (AC), direct current (DC) and a high power charging point (HPC)?

    Essentially it is the duration of the charging operation. The time taken to charge electric vehicles (depending on the cable or charging station) takes longer with alternating current (AC), while direct current (DC) is significantly faster. Ultra-fast charging with direct current (DC) is possible with a high-power charging stations (HPC), such as those operated by our partner IONITY in Europe. There the battery of a BMW iX3, for example, is charged from 0% to 80% with a capacity of up to 150 kW in only 34 minutes – the maximum vehicle charging capacity in each case depends on the market-specific infrastructure.


    Please note that in the case of DC and HPC charging, you should keep holding the plug on the vehicle until it locks in place. In this way, you can ensure that the charging operation will start without any problems.


    Plug-in hybrids are charged exclusively with alternating current (AC) – hence conveniently via a socket, Wallbox or a public alternating current charging station.

  • How do I get a High Power Charging tariff option?

    In Europe, the public high-power charging (HPC) network of IONITY is integrated directly into the BMW Charging package – and you receive your BMW Charging Card directly with the delivery of your vehicle. All you need to do then is register for BMW Charging, conclude the attractive toll-free tariff option with your new BMW electric vehicle* and at the latest within 24 hours you can start charging – with your BMW iX3, for example, at an IONITY station.

  • Can I also drive longer distances with my BMW electric car?
