Charging Options

Every BMW i8 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 3.5 hours. 

BMW offers a charging station solution called the BMW Wallbox which can be purchased with the car. This provides up to 15 A of current meaning the car can be recharged in as little as 1.5 hours. Installing a charging station provides not only faster charge rates for the car but also convenience for storage of charging cables and easy access to power.
