Range, charging & efficiency of the new BMW i3.

The BMW i3 has everything you need to combat the challenges of modern mobility – and to outmatch them in silence. It charges its high-voltage battery at a quick-charging DC station in just 39 minutes in order to achieve the daily use range of up to 200 km. Its intelligent energy management makes it flexible and highly efficient, both in city traffic and on longer trips.

DRIVE FURTHER, FASTER. WITH POWER AND DRIVE.Range, charging & efficiency of the new BMW i3.


Never before was charging this simple: The intelligent charging options of the BMW i3 allow flexibility and convenience at the highest level. With digital services, you can plan the charging process more clearly than ever before – regardless of whether you're at home or out and about.

  • Home charging

    With the BMW i Wallbox, the BMW i Wallbox Plus and the BMW i Wallbox Connect you can charge your BMW i3 at home safely, quickly and comfortably. In less than three hours the battery will be charged up to 80% of its capacity. This is possible due to the three-phase charging power of the new BMW i Wallbox of up to 11 kW* for the BMW i3. With the BMW i installation service, the installation of your BMW i Wallbox will be carried out by qualified experts.
    For even more sustainability, you have the option to use green energy and solar power you have generated yourself.

    * The Wallbox has a charging capacity of up to 22 kW.

  • BMW Digital Charging Service: intelligent charging

    Charging can be this convenient and customised: With the BMW Digital Charging Service (DCS), you can automatically charge at low price times based on your energy rates. This reduces charging costs and allows you to support the use of renewable energy. DCS controls the charging process independently and ensures that your vehicle is fully charged at the desired departure time. Even more sustainable, you can charge preferably with energy you've produced from your own solar panels and the BMW i Wallbox Connect. DCS facilitates the sustainable use of renewable energies at full transparency. With BMW Connected, DCS is very easy to operate using your mobile end device. In the BMW Charging Portal you get insights on your current charging plan, your consumed energy and you can comfortably download your charging history.

  • Public charging

    There are many reasons for you to be out and about with your BMW i3 – and just as many opportunities to charge it while you are. First, the practicalities: With the BMW i3, you can use public charging stations with either alternating current (AC) or with direct current (DC). This will make you more flexible and will allow you to charge the vehicle as quickly as possible. This is because at a public DC charging station, the energy is transferred directly into the high-voltage storage in the vehicle battery at a constant current flow rate. This allows the BMW i3 to be charged up to 80% in 39 minutes. Alternatively, you can also charge your BMW i3 at an AC charging station up to 80% in less than three hours. Thus, public AC charging stations are particularly well-suited during long periods of the vehicle being parked, for example during a shopping tour.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 0
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0
Power consumption in kWh/100 km: 13.6–13.1
Electric range in km (combined): 300–290
Customer-oriented electric range in km: up to 200


Power consumption and CO2 emissions for the BMW i3s (94 Ah):
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 0
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0
Power consumption in kWh/100 km: 14.3
Electric range in km (combined): 280
Customer-oriented electric range in km: up to 200

These values are provisional figures and have not yet been confirmed.

The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected. Consumption data is determined in accordance to the ECE driving cycle.

The driving range depends on a variety of factors, especially: personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning.

Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be found in the 'New Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emission Guidelines', which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany.
