Within the 360° ELECTRIC portfolio, BMW i combines a wide range of innovative products and services that make electric driving a comfortable experience and a daily pleasure: from simple home charging and the ease of using a continually-expanding network of charging stations to connected navigation and the option of using conventional cars for holiday trips with BMW Add-on Mobility.
Electric cars have many advantages over conventional vehicles – for example, they have a ‘full tank’ every morning, because they can be charged quickly and easily at home using the standard charging cable supplied. Or even faster and even more simply with the BMW i Wallbox. This wall-mounted charging station for home use increases charging capacity, reducing charging time and making it the ideal design accessory for BMW i vehicles. The installation service available through BMW i is part of the complete Wallbox package and is customised to your specific needs. And because BMW i promotes consistent sustainability in e-mobility, BMW i will also arrange the appropriate green electricity contract with a selected renewable energy provider.
Simply plug in the charging cable − and the charging process starts automatically.
With a charging rate of 4.6 kW, the BMW i Wallbox Pure enables a BMW i3 to be charged to 80% of its full capacity in less than six hours, which is quicker than with the standard charging cable. The illuminated Start-Stop button indicates the current charging status at any time. During the charging process, the charging cable is blocked.
During the charging process, your vehicle can be pre-heated or cooled. The energy required for this is not provided by the vehicle battery, thus maximising your range.
This safe and personalised solution contains a charging station, an installation check as well as competent installation in your home or garage.
During the installation check, qualified experts check the possible connections for the wallbox. After it has been fitted, you are provided with instructions on how to use the wallbox. Safe operation is guaranteed by a 24-month warranty.
The online quick check lets you check for yourself whether your individual situation is suitable for the installation of a BMW i Wallbox.
Smart. Sustainable. Multifunctional.
Better charging rates and an intelligent connection to smart home and energy-management systems – the BMW i Wallbox Pro combines top-quality design with maximum functionality.
The Wallbox Pro is operated via 7-inch touchscreen display, which enables you to control the charging process and also provides you with an excellent overview of your consumption data. A PIN code protects your wallbox from unauthorised access. Thanks to the high cable attachment, charging is as easy as refuelling at a standard fuel pump. The ideal length of the charging cable of the wallbox prevents unwanted contact with the ground and minimises the risk of you tripping over it. The attractive LED fibre-optic strips indicate the current charging status.
The integrated 7-inch touchscreen display is the central operating element of the Wallbox Pro and allows you to choose your own individual settings. Operation is possible outdoors, in all weather conditions and even when you are wearing gloves. As soon as you approach the wallbox, a proximity sensor reacts automatically and activates the display.
The monitor shows your current consumption data as well as information about previous charging cycles.
If you want to integrate your wallbox into your home network, the BMW i Wallbox Remote App lets you remote-control all functions from a smartphone or a tablet.
Simply plug in the charging cable − and the charging process starts automatically in accordance with your personal preferences.
With a charging rate of up to 7.4 kW, the BMW i Wallbox Pure supports very fast charging of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. The high-voltage battery of a BMW i3 can be charged to 80% of its full capacity in less than three hours.
Decide for yourself which type of electricity to power your vehicle with. The intelligent charging functions of the BMW i Wallbox Pro with an energy meter let you use home-generated electricity for your charging process – for example a home solar power system as a private energy source for your emission-free mobility. If no home-generated energy is available, the wallbox uses power from the grid instead.
The optional BMW i Wallbox energy meter enables you to integrate your individual solar-power unit into the charging process for your vehicle. The BMW i Wallbox Pro optimises the charging process in accordance with the solar power available, thus ensuring maximum emission-free electromobility.
BMW i enables you to use your own home-generated electricity in cooperation with premium solar energy providers. Our partners provide you with made-to-measure packages for solar-energy solutions on the roof of your house or garage as well as complete solar carport offers. Information on individual solar solutions from our partner Solarwatt GmbH can be found here.
With the Wallbox Pro user administration, you can keep a constant eye on your electricity consumption.
If you use your vehicle for business purposes, an integrated function allows this electricity use to be recorded separately, which is ideal for expense accounting.
Details of electricity consumption for a specific user account can also be forwarded by e-mail directly from the Wallbox Pro.
Thanks to integrated charging management, the Wallbox Pro recognises how much electricity is currently being used in your household and adapts the charging performance automatically.
This ensures maximum charging efficiency in accordance with all electrical appliances in your household.
A clear read-out on the touchscreen shows how much power is being drawn from the household electrical system.
SMART HOME SYSTEM.
You can then control selected smart home functions directly from the wallbox. And before you set off, your wallbox can even display a current weather report.
With myGEKKO, you have an overview of your electricity consumption at all times – whether you’re at the wheel of your vehicle or sitting at home on the sofa.
Take advantage of the BMW i Installation Service.
This safe and personalised solution contains an installation check as well as complete installation in your home or garage.
During the installation check, qualified experts check the possible connections for the wallbox. After it has been fitted, you are provided with instructions on how to use the Wallbox Pro and, together with your installation partner, you can set up your initial user account. Safe operation is guaranteed by a 24-month warranty.
The online quick-check lets you check for yourself whether your individual situation is suitable for the installation of a BMW i Wallbox.
The sustainability of electromobility is inextricably linked with green energy. Combined with a green electricity contract which allows you to charge your car with renewably generated electricity, electromobility becomes a completely emission-free driving pleasure.
The product portfolio of BMW Green Energy ranges from the procurement of renewable energies from ecological electricity providers such as Solarwatt to energy generation using your own ‘My Green Energy’ solutions – e.g. from a solar car port.
BMW creates innovative solutions for city e-mobility – especially for all those drivers without their own charging options: they have access to flexible and time-saving parking and charging options in public car parks.
Thanks to connected BMW i Navigation with BMW Connected Drive, the BMW i3 knows where the nearest charging station is, indicates whether it is available – and, if necessary, incorporates it into your route. So BMW i drivers can easily find one of the increasingly common public charging stations in the city and top up their battery.
ChargeNow is a mobility service from BMW i and the largest association of mobile charging station providers. The charging stations in the ChargeNow network are displayed using the BMW i ConnectedDrive services in the navigation unit, making it especially quick and easy to find and use public charging stations. Payment is simple and cashless via the ChargeNow card. Once a month you receive a detailed statement of the individual charges billed and the corresponding costs.
ParkNow Long Term helps BMW i customers find long-term parking options with charging stations in multi-storey car parks near their home or workplace.
This is especially practical for customers who are not able to charge their vehicle at home.
Whether all-day, at night or during working hours – ParkNow LongTerm has the right offer to meet your needs.
Many charging station providers, one central access point:
BMW i ChargeNow.
For optimal consideration of your individual mobility needs as a BMW i driver, BMW i also offers customised mobility solutions for extended journeys. For weekend or vacation trips, you have access to conventional BMW models at any time for all your driving needs: from a convertible for outings to the countryside to a sports activity vehicle (SAV) for the winter holidays.
And thanks to the DriveNow car sharing service, in some cities you can choose a BMW or MINI model and, in the near future, a BMW i3, and use this vehicle for city travel. Billing is per minute – so you really do pay only for the time you need the car. Flexible mobility – the key to a new, mobile way of living, perfectly tailored to your personal transport needs.
With BMW Add-on Mobility, your BMW i Partner will provide you with the use of a conventionally-powered BMW for extremely long journeys such as vacation trips. You and your BMW i Partner simply arrange for a set number of days of use that are available to you within a specific period. Contact your BMW i Partner for more information about BMW Add-on Mobility.
