CHARGING WITH BMW: FAST, SIMPLE AND FLEXIBLE.

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. So, wherever your journey takes you, a charging station is probably closer than you think.

PERFECTLY CONNECTED.

BMW e-mobility My BMW App

My BMW App*.

The My BMW App* connects you virtually with your BMW whenever and wherever you wish and, thanks to its modern design, intuitive operation and comprehensive functions, offers you a completely new experience of mobility. When using it, you not only have the status of your vehicle constantly in view, such as the charge level or available range, but are also able to interact with and program your vehicle very conveniently on your smartphone. For instance, you can plan your journey in advance and in comfort on your smartphone and then simply send your destination to the navigation system in your vehicle. At the same time, the My BMW App* will always show you the nearest public charging station along with its availability. During the charging operation, you keep track of the current charge level at all times and can precondition the interior of your vehicle as ideal preparation for the journey – or set a corresponding timer to do this. You will also find details on all the previous charging operations as well as your BMW Points allocation in the My BMW App. With these and many other functions and services, the My BMW App* assures you of carefree mobility and even more sheer electric driving pleasure – regardless of where you happen to be.

BMW e-mobility BMW Connected Charging

Connected Charging.

Farewell to range anxiety: with BMW Connected Charging you use the range of your BMW electric car particularly efficiently. You have already planned your journey on your smartphone via the My BMW App* and sent it to your vehicle, whereupon the navigation system automatically calculates the optimum route and displays it for you. If the destination lies outside of the available electric range of your vehicle, which you can view at any time via the range radius, a charging stop will be added to your route automatically. This means that you always have all the relevant information at your fingertips: type of plug required, available charging currents, opening times and costs for the charging station as well as points of interest in the direct surroundings, such as a cafe or restaurant. When travelling, you can call on the voice-controlled BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant at any time for answers and helpful tips. For instance, try asking: “Hey BMW, how can I increase my range?”

BMW e-mobility BMW eDrive Zones & BMW Points

BMW eDrive Zones.

All over the world, more and more cities are setting up areas in which the traffic is either prohibited entirely or only permitted to a limited extent. Already active in Dublin and Limerick, BMW has further plans to launch its eDrive Zones in Cork and Galway in the coming year. In order to enable and promote emission-free travel through these environmental zones to the greatest extent possible, we have developed BMW eDrive Zone. Your BMW plug-in hybrid thus recognises automatically when it is entering an environmental zone and switches over independently to a locally emission-free, purely electric driving mode.
