BMW CHARGING.

BMW CHARGING.

Charging made simple with BMW Charging.

At BMW, we understand the importance of charging capabilities, both at home and in public. That’s why, as part of BMW Charging, multiple ways of recharging have been pioneered and made a reality for Irish drivers. What’s more, new partnerships have been created, and in doing so established access to the largest network of charging stations across Ireland and Europe.

Most charging stations provide under 50kW and deliver slower charging times. Charging times are also affected by other factors, such as the battery temperature, condition and starting charge, vehicle equipment running during charging, the outside temperature and other factors. Stated charging times are based on optimum charging conditions. Charging over 80% slows to protect the battery. Network provider charges apply.

FAQ: THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ON PUBLIC CHARGING.

  • Where can I charge while travelling?
  • How can I find a suitable charging option when on the go?
  • How do I get access to public charging?
  • How do I get a High Power Charging tariff option?

Most charging stations provide under 50kW and deliver slower charging times. Charging times are also affected by other factors, such as the battery temperature, condition and starting charge, vehicle equipment running during charging, the outside temperature and other factors. Stated charging times are based on optimum charging conditions. Charging over 80% slows to protect the battery. Network provider charges apply.

 

The calculation takes into account consumption and charging performance. Values refer to 29–33 degrees Celsius battery start and ambient temperature with certification values excluding additional auxiliary consumers such as seat heating, displays, air conditioning. Individual consumption may vary (depending on e.g. driving profile, temperature, ambient conditions) as well as the individually achievable charging performance (depending on e.g. battery state of charge, vehicle air conditioning). Consumption is based on WLTP best case. Charging performance is based on the maximum possible charging performance (depending on charging type and vehicle).

    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.
