HOME CHARGING.

At home you can charge the BMW i8 very easily with a BMW i Wallbox Pure or Pro. These charging stations, which are mounted on the house or garage wall, not only complement the unique design of the BMW i8 vehicles optically, but also charge the BMW i8 much faster than is possible with the charge cable supplied as standard – consequently, with the Wallbox Pro, the BMW i8 is can be charged to 80% of its full capacity in less than two hours.
The installation service offered by BMW i will be glad to carry out an on-site check to see whether the BMW i Wallbox Pure or Pro can be mounted on your house wall and connected to your electricity supply. Qualified electricians from the BMW i installation partner will also take care of delivery, installation and commissioning on request. Using the online quick-check, which you can access via the link below, you will be able to find out in advance whether is it possible to install the BMW i Wallbox in your home. And because BMW i advocates complete sustainability in e-mobility, a green electricity contract with a selected BMW i Partner can also be arranged for you on request, or you can generate your own energy with a solar carport organised by BMW i.

PUBLIC CHARGING.

BMW i has created an innovative concept that also offers ideal charging options for the BMW i8 on the move. ChargeNow, a mobility service from BMW i, is the largest association of mobile charging station providers where the BMW i8 can be charged. This concept also includes ParkNow LongTerm, a supply of long-term parking spaces including charging facilities for i8 drivers in locations such as multi-storey car parks.
The navigation of the BMW i8 supports you during the search for suitable charging options, which are displayed in the vehicle, on the BMW i Remote App and in the BMW ConnectedDrive Internet portal.

CHARGING WHILE DRIVING.

In the non-electric driving modes, the high-voltage battery is charged directly by the petrol engine so that it is available for the boost function. Here most energy is fed into the battery in the SPORT mode, and the energy recovery in thrust and brake phases also reaches its maximum. In the COMFORT and ECO PRO modes, correspondingly less energy flows into the high-voltage battery. And if you are driving your BMW i8 in the HYBRID mode, the high-voltage battery is charged exclusively by Brake Energy Regeneration.

INDIVIDUAL DRIVING BEHAVIOUR.

The real consumption of the BMW i8 depends entirely on personal patterns of usage. Due to the electrical drive components, individual driving behaviour has a higher influence on petrol consumption than is the case in conventional vehicles. With a fully charged battery, the maximum purely electrical range of 37 km can be fully utilised. If the eDrive button is activated, a purely electrical speed of up to 120 km/h is possible. In the driving modes COMFORT and ECO PRO, the petrol engine is automatically switched on by an intelligent operating strategy, and also for purposes of recharging the battery. In the SPORT mode, the petrol engine is running continuously. Depending on the type of driving and length of the route, this affects the consumption of the BMW i8 – the more often you charge the high-voltage battery by cable or Wallbox, the more you will be able to drive purely electrically and hence reduce the overall consumption.
