Within the 360° ELECTRIC portfolio, BMW i brings together a wide range of innovative products and services that make electric driving a comfortable and pleasing everyday experience. We make everything simple – from home charging to a continually expanding network of easy-to-use public charging stations. Other benefits include fully connected navigation, as standard, as well as the option to use a choice of BMW Group cars through BMW Access for those times you may need an alternative vehicle. 

Home charging.

The most obvious difference when you first own an electric car is likely to be the change in your fuelling habits. You'll find that charging quickly becomes an intuitive routine. With 360° ELECTRIC, you can always rely on your new BMW i vehicle, thanks to the portfolio of 360° ELECTRIC Products and Services that provide easy and convenient charging.
Imagine not having to go to a petrol station – instead enjoy the convenience of charging at home. You can charge the high voltage battery in any conventional socket* with the cable provided. For faster charging, we recommend the BMW i Wallbox Pure and installation service – a convenient home solution that lets you charge your BMW i3 in less than 4 hours (0-80%).
* BMW recommends that wiring is checked by a qualified electrician.

Public charging.

BMW creates innovative solutions for e-Mobility by giving you access to a UK-wide network of public charge points  – even if you have your own charge point at home.
With BMW i Navigation and BMW i ConnectedDrive fitted as standard, BMW i vehicles can display charge points and availability in real time, including them in your navigation route, if required. With its DC charging capability, the BMW i3 can take full advantage of the public charging network's rapid charge and you can be on your way in less than 40 minutes (0-80% charge).

Many charging station providers, one central access point: ChargeNow.

ChargeNow is a unique service that gives BMW i customers in the UK access to the largest nationwide network of public charging stations with a single card. Charging stations in the ChargeNow network are displayed, along with their live availability, in the navigation unit via the BMW ConnectedDrive services, making it quick and easy to find and use public charging stations with the optional BMW i Public Charging Cable.
Availability is displayed in real time, so you can see whether a station is available for use. Cashless payment is simple through the ChargeNow card. You will also receive an itemised monthly statement and can access your account information online at any time.

Assistance Services.

As the owner of a BMW i vehicle you can look forward to a wide variety of products and services for all your daily requirements. These include the BMW i Remote App and the BMW ConnectedDrive Navigation services. Use the BMW ConnectedDrive services, optimised for electric car journeys, to get the maximum range from your BMW i. And if your car requires technical assistance on the road, or you have any difficulties with charging, BMW i Mobile Care will resolve the problem quickly and efficiently. Easy and convenient.
