It seems that BMW does its best to appease its customers : not so long time ago BMW confirmed that 2017 i3 model will have 115 miles(around 185 kilometers) of all-electric range and now we have another great news from them  –  launch of a free fast charging station.

Isn’t it great of them?

I mean, I am an American patriot with all my heart and soul, but if BMW will continue things at the same pace, I will quit using Chevy as well as Tesla – sorry Elon, but competition is the holy of holies.

Let’s learn more about it.

ChargeNow DC Fast project

Offered by BMW in cooperation with EVgo, ChargeNow DC Fast allows eligible BMW i3 drivers in participating markets to enjoy 24 months of no cost charging sessions for the BMW i3 at participating EVgo Stations. 

Enrolled BMW i3 customers can use the ChargeNow card for free 30 minutes-charging, DC Fast Combo charging sessions and Unlimited 1 hour, Level 2 charging sessions.

Cutting-edge technology in use

6062.jpgThe BMW i3 is equipped with the future-proof 50 kW direct current (DC) Fast charging technology. When the BMW i3 (94 Ah) is connected to a DC Fast charging station, the battery cells are charged up to 80 percent of their capacity in less than 40 minutes. In the BMW i3 (60 Ah) this takes approximately 25 minutes.

Revealing some pitfalls

An interesting hiccup in the project is that the larger battery pack can no longer be recharged to 80% in the timeframe of 30 free minutes (as was an earlier ‘selling feature’). BMW states 0 to 80% capacity DC fast recharge at 50 kW in:

* 25 minutes BMW i3 (60 Ah) – 21.6 kWh

* 39 minutes BMW i3 (94 Ah) – 33.2 kWh

6059.jpg6061.jpg6060.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are not sure the additional fees after 30 minutes for DC charging, but “After the initial no cost 1 hour Level 2 charging session, there will be a $1.00 per hour fee assessed.

How can I take part in this program?

Eligible BMW i3 owners in ChargeNow DC Fast markets must purchase or lease a Model Year 2015 or later BMW i3 vehicle on or after November 1, 2015, from a BMW i Center.

Fleet customers are not eligible. Program participation extends for 24 months from the date of enrollment at chargenow.com/us, which must occur on or before December 31, 2018.

Both the registration period and the termination date may be reduced or extended from time to time, without notice. Other terms apply.

More information regarding program can be found here

Where is this service available?

The project includes 25 major markets:

* Atlanta, GA

* Austin, TX         

* Boston, MA         

* Chicago, IL         

* Dallas, TX         

* Denver, CO         

* Fresno, CA         

* Houston, TX         

* Los Angeles, CA        

* Miami, FL         

* Monterey, CA         

* Nashville, TN         

* New York, NY         

* Orlando, FL         

* Philadelphia, PA         

* Phoenix, AZ         

* Portland, OR         

* Raleigh, NC         

* Sacramento, CA

More fast charging stations will be built.

According to BMW, by the end of this year, every one of those 25 markets will get at least one 50 kW DC Combo charger (excluding Portland), while by 2018 there should be 600 (100 already + 500 new).
