Charging times for

Public Charging

High-power charging station

You can charge your vehicle particularly quickly at a high-power charging station (e.g. such as those in the IONITY network). The direct current (DC) provided at these stations offers significantly higher charging capacities than with alternating current (AC), such as that supplied by a domestic socket. This is why high-power charging stations such as these are especially suitable for charging when travelling. In the display, you can see the minimum time needed to charge from 10 to 80% of the battery charge level with maximum vehicle charging capacity. Within this range, charging is fastest and also preserves the battery. A look at the map shows you all the high-power charging stations within the BMW Charging network. (Valid as of 22/03/2023)

Fast charging station

If you need to act quickly in the city or while travelling, a fast charging station is just the right choice. This is because the direct current (DC) provided at these stations offers higher charging capacities than with alternating current (AC), such as that supplied by a domestic socket. This is why fast charging stations such as these are especially suitable for charging when you are travelling. In the display, you can see the minimum time needed to charge from 10 to 80% of the battery charge level with up to 50 kW output. Within this range, charging is fastest and also preserves the battery. A look at the map shows you all the fast charging stations within the BMW Charging network. (Valid as of 22/03/2023)

AC charging station

They are especially suitable for regular charging over longer periods of time – such as overnight or while you are at work. In the display, you will find the minimum time for charging from 0-100 % battery charge level with a maximum output of 22 kW. The charging performance depends on the equipment options for the vehicle. Take a look at the map and discover all the charging stations with alternating current in the BMW Charging network. (Valid as of 22/03/2023)

Home charging

Home Charger / Optional Flexible Charging Cable

At home you can charge your vehicle with a home charger or the optional Flexible Fast Charging Cable. Alternating current (AC) is used for both. Depending on the vehicle, special equipment and market, a home charger provides a maximum charging output of 22 kW, the Flexible Fast Charging Cable a maximum of 11 kW. In the display, you will see the minimum time for charging from 0-100% battery charge level with an output of 11 kW.

These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. Actual times may be longer and depend on a number of factors, including starting charge level, ambient temperature, age and condition of the battery, use of auxiliary devices, charging point capacity.
