PUBLIC CHARGING.

BMW i has created an innovative concept that also offers ideal charging options for the BMW i8 on the move.
The navigation of the BMW i8 supports you during the search for suitable charging options, which are displayed in the vehicle, on the BMW i Remote App and in the BMW ConnectedDrive Internet portal.

CHARGING WHILE DRIVING.

In the non-electric driving modes, the high-voltage battery is charged directly by the petrol engine so that it is available for the boost function. Most energy is fed into the battery in the SPORT mode, and the energy recovery in thrust and brake phases also reaches its maximum. In the COMFORT and ECO PRO modes, correspondingly less energy flows into the high-voltage battery. If you are driving your BMW i8 in the HYBRID mode, the high-voltage battery is charged exclusively by Brake Energy Regeneration.

INDIVIDUAL DRIVING BEHAVIOUR.

The real consumption of the BMW i8 depends entirely on personal patterns of usage. Due to the electrical drive components, individual driving behaviour has a higher influence on petrol consumption than is the case in conventional vehicles. With a fully charged battery, the maximum purely electrical range of 37 km can be fully utilised. If the eDrive button is activated, a purely electrical speed of up to 120 km/h is possible. In the driving modes COMFORT and ECO PRO, the petrol engine is automatically switched on by an intelligent operating strategy, and also for purposes of recharging the battery. In the SPORT mode, the petrol engine is running continuously. Depending on the type of driving and length of the route, this affects the consumption of the BMW i8 – the more often you charge the high-voltage battery by cable or Wallbox, the more you will be able to drive purely electrically and hence reduce the overall consumption.
