Lightness carries weight.

Life module is the term BMW uses to describe the modern passenger cell made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). Also referred to as carbon, this material is light, strong and more resilient than steel. The low weight and low-lying centre of gravity boost both agility and range.

Charge fast and easy, everywhere.

The intelligent charging options of the BMW i3 allow flexibility and convenience at the highest level. With digital services, you can plan the charging process more clearly than ever before, regardless of whether you're at home or out on the road.

If energy reserves of your BMW i3 are running low, you can charge quickly and conveniently with the the BMW i Wallbox Plus and the BMW i Wallbox Connect. Depending on the local infrastructure you can typically charge your BMW i3 in less than four hours up to 80% of the charging capacity. Under three hours is also possible but requires a three-phase electrical connection to unlock the full charging power of the BMW i Wallbox of up to 22kW. Our installation service would be happy to install the Wallboxes for you and your local BMW Retailer can commence this service for you.

In addition, you have the option to use green energy and solar energy you have generated yourself, for quick charging and even greater sustainability.

With the BMW i3, you can use both alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC) public charging stations. This not only makes you more flexible, it also enables you to charge your vehicle as quickly as possible. At a DC public charging station of up to 50kW, a constantly powerful current transfers the energy directly to the high-voltage battery, charging the BMW i3 to 80% capacity in less than 40 minutes. Using an AC Rapid station of up to 11kW charges the BMW i3 to 80% capacity in under three hours, whereas an AC Fast station of up to 7.4kW will do so in under four.

For ease of access ChargeNow is a BMW i mobility service, which enables quick and simple use of over 5,000 UK public charging stations.
