How long does it take to charge a plug-in hybrid at home?

Charging times vary between models, but BMW's most popular plug-in hybrid, the 330e Saloon, can recharge in about 3.5 hours using the optional BMW i Wallbox Connect.

Do I need special charging cables at home?

All BMW plug-in hybrids can be charged at home using the supplied standard Charging Cable in a domestic plug socket, or using an optionally installed BMW i Wallbox Connect home charging station.

What if I need to charge while driving?

ChargeNow, BMW's mobility service, offers easy access to over 7,000 UK public charging points and is the largest UK network.

How do I find a charging station?

BMW Plug-in Hybrids can lead you to a charging station using the on-board navigation system, which uses live data to determine both location and availability.

Are public charging stations faster than charging at home?

Charging stations offer either AC Fast charge or DC Rapid charge. BMW plug-in hybrids only use AC Fast charge (not DC Rapid) and, depending on the model, will charge to 80% capacity in 2 - 3 hours.
