Charging Options

Every BMW i3 comes with a charging cable that can be used to charge the car from a domestic power point. However this will only charge the car at 10 A meaning to completely recharge, the process may take up to 13 hours (94 Ah model). 

BMW offers a charging station solution called the BMW Wallbox which can be purchased with the car. This provides up to 30 A of current meaning the car can be recharged in as little as 4.5 hours (for the 94 Ah model). Installing a charging station is the best choice for electric vehicle owners and will remove any worries about range.
