Couple charging their BMW i3 at a public charging station I01 2018 Jucaro beige with Frozen Grey metallic highlight

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.

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

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.
