On long journeys, there will be occasions when even the fully charged battery of your electric car is not enough. This is why, in addition to the public charging stations at car parks and in inner cities, there are also high-power charging stations, such as those provided by IONITY. These charging facilities use direct current (DC) and are located along the key transit routes and motorways. This network of charging options is undergoing continuous expansion and is designed especially for long journeys and short stops. As they are particularly powerful, the stations provide a significantly faster charge and shorter waiting times as a result. In this way, you can charge your BMW i3s, for example, up to a level of 80% in approx. 40 minutes. And thanks to the BMW navigation system and the BMW Connected App, you can effortlessly combine your route with these charging stations and determine the best possible itinerary for an efficient journey.
