As part of its ChargeNow DC Fast program, BMW of North America is supporting EVgo’s installation of an additional 500 DC Fast Combo chargers.

The first phase of ChargeNow DC Fast saw the installation of 100 EVgo DC fast charging stations throughout California, which BMW i3 owners can access for free with their ChargeNow cards. With BMW’s continued support, EVgo plans to install 500 more fast chargers in 25 US markets by the end of 2018.

Customers in ChargeNow DC Fast markets who purchase or lease the BMW i3 receive unlimited free charging at EVgo Stations (limited to 30 minutes for DC fast charging, and one hour for Level 2) for 24 months from their date of enrollment.

“With ChargeNow DC Fast, BMW i3 owners can experience ‘range confidence’ resulting from convenient, quicker DC Fast charging on the go, making longer EV trips more practical,” said Robert Healey, Head of EV Infrastructure for BMW of North America. “The no-cost charging sessions will become even more valuable as more of these DC Fast Combo chargers become available.”
