It charges 80 percent of its high-voltage battery at a quick-charging station in about 45 minutes. Its intelligent energy management makes it flexible and highly efficient, both in city traffic and on longer trips.*
* The BMW i3 must not be charged with cables more than 30 metres long.

Home Charging.

With the BMW Wallbox Essential, the BMW Wallbox Plus and the BMW Wallbox Connect you can charge your BMW i3 at home safely, quickly and comfortably. In about three hours the battery will be charged up to 80% of its capacity. This is possible due to the three-phase charging power of the new BMW Wallbox of up to 11 kW* for the BMW i3. With the BMW installation service, the installation of your BMW Wallbox will be carried out by qualified experts. For even more sustainability, you have the option to use green energy and solar power you have generated yourself. (* The Wallbox has a charging capacity of up to 22 kW.)

Digital Charging Service.

How can I supply my vehicle with electricity during the day? And will my BMW still be charged in time before I have to leave? With the Digital Charging Service questions like this will no longer be necessary. This is because the intelligent charging assistant takes care of topping up the battery at the charging station in your home, during the day or night, or from the socket, fully automatically, efficiently and, above all, in an environmentally friendly way. Enter your electricity tariff, your planned departure time and your preferred charging mode in the BMW Connected App. Using this information, the Digital Charging Service will ensure that your BMW is supplied with electricity during the most economical tariff periods and is charged in time for your departure.* (* Only possible in conjunction with the BMW Wallbox.)

Public charging.

There are many reasons for you to be out and about with your BMW i3 – and just as many opportunities to charge it while you are. First, the practicalities: With the BMW i3, you can use public charging stations with either alternating current (AC) or with direct current (DC). This will make you more flexible and will allow you to charge the vehicle as quickly as possible. This is because at a public DC charging station, the energy is transferred directly into the high-voltage storage in the vehicle battery at a constant current flow rate. This allows the BMW i3 to be charged up to 80% in ca. 40 minutes. Alternatively, you can also charge your BMW i3 at an AC charging station up to 80% in about three hours. Thus, public AC charging stations are particularly well-suited during long periods of the vehicle being parked, for example during a shopping tour.

In addition, the BMW Wallbox Connect offers the option to use green energy from your own solar panel system. Our BMW installation service will be happy to install one at your home if you would like.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

  • BMW i3 (120 Ah):
    Power consumption in kWh/100 km: 15.3-16.3
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 0
    Electric range in km (combined): 308-285

    The information on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption has been determined in accordance with the prescribed measurement procedure VO (EU) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

    ­Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be found in the 'New Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emission Guidelines', which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany and on https://www.dat.de/co2

    ­The values are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. For vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.
