Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the BMW i4. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

NOTE: BMW has not released details about the on-board charger of the i4. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.

Europe

Charging an EV in Europe differs by country. Some European countries primarily use 1-phase connections to the grid, while other countries are almost exclusively using a 3-phase connection. The table below shows all possible ways the BMW i4 can be charged, but some modes of charging might not be widely available in certain countries.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 41 hours 12 km/h
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 25h30m 20 km/h
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 12h45m 39 km/h
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 8h45m 57 km/h
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW † 8h45m 57 km/h

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Fast Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the BMW i4.

BMW has not released details about rapid charging the i4. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%

Europe

Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 50 kW 71 min 290 km/h
CCS (100 kW DC) 100 kW 90 kW † 39 min 530 km/h
CCS (150 kW DC) 150 kW 120 kW † 29 min 720 km/h

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.
