BMW has been on the electric journey since 2013, releasing more responsible concepts and vehicles. To accompany this change in the construction of their vehicles, the German firm has created a contract system that allows users to charge and be charged by BMW.
It is therefore now possible to charge your vehicle without having to pay each time you visit a recharging station. We tell you all about this new system that will be available very soon!
BMW PLUG & CHARGE : HOW DOES IT WORK?
BMW Plug & Charge is a system that will allow BMW hybrid and electric vehicles to be charged using public charging stations. BMW vehicle owners will be able to charge their vehicles using these unique charging stations without needing a card or app to operate the station.
In addition, the system incorporates ISO-15118-2 and ISO 15118-20, BMW’s charging standards that allow for faster vehicle charging compared to a traditional charging station. This way of charging aims to provide users with a simpler and more accessible experience than filling up with gas.
MORE FLEXIBILITY THAN EVER
To make charging stations convenient, BMW offers a charging contract that allows drivers to connect to any public charging station. The vehicle then communicates directly with the charging station to find out how much electricity has been delivered and report this information on your charging contract.
This way, you can track your electricity consumption from your BMW account and there is no need to take out the credit card at the station. This is a huge time saver for users and makes recharging an easier experience.
COMPATIBLE WITH ALL TERMINALS
Thanks to BMW’s charging contracts, it is possible to connect to any charging station on Canadian territory and recharge your vehicle by plugging it in. As a reminder, there are more than 6,000 public charging stations across Canada.
WHEN WILL THE BMW PLUG & CHARGE SYSTEM BE AVAILABLE?
The BMW Plug & Charge system will soon be available to all users of BMW vehicles. Indeed, the firm announces the launch of the system in the course of 2023.
This innovation will be available to all owners of BMW vehicles requiring electric recharging. Of course, it will be necessary to have a recharging contract to benefit from this new system.
READY TO ENTER THE FUTURE OF ELECTRIC CHARGING?
As you can see, this initiative by BMW aims to normalize electric recharging by making it more pleasant. There will be no more need to pay at the charging station to recharge your vehicle.
In addition, you will be able to easily track your consumption with your charging history available on your BMW account. This is a breakthrough that will help electric vehicle owners enjoy a real advantage over gasoline vehicle users and motivate everyone to choose more environmentally friendly solutions for getting around.
