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 i3s 120 Ah. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

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 i3s 120 Ah 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 19h30m 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 12h15m 11 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 6h15m 22 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 4h15m 33 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW † 4h15m 33 mph

† = 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 i3s 120 Ah.

  • 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) 49 kW † 47 kW † 36 min 160 mph
CCS (175 kW DC) 49 kW † 47 kW † 36 min 160 mph
CCS (350 kW DC) 49 kW † 47 kW † 36 min 160 mph

† = 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.
