BMW of North America and Electrify America have announced an agreement to provide 2022 BMW EV customers with two years of 30-minute complimentary charging sessions at all Electrify America public charging stations.
The program will launch with the sale of the new BMW iX xDrive50, BMW i4 eDrive40 and BMW i4 M50 in March. Customers will have access to complimentary charging at more than 3,000 Electrify America chargers across the US. Using in-car navigation, the myBMW app or the Electrify America app, BMW drivers will be able to locate nearby charging stations, verify charger availability, and navigate to the charging sites.
Electrify America operates around 800 public charging stations with 3,500 individual DC fast chargers in the US. Power levels range from 150 kW to 350 kW. The latter can enable BMW iX and BMW i4 drivers to add between 90 and 108 miles of range in as little as 10 minutes.
“Charging availability is a key feature when it comes to electric vehicles,” said BMW of North America CEO Sebastian Mackensen. “We’re excited to offer our customers access to charging that is fast, affordable and convenient, as we launch the next generation of all-electric from BMW.”
“Our coast-to-coast network of ultra-fast chargers is growing every week with more charging stations which are ready to welcome new owners of electric vehicles from BMW,” said Electrify America CEO Giovanni Palazzo.
