THE CHARGING TIMES OF ELECTRIC CARS.

Charging your electric car at high-power charging stations is the fastest method. Thanks to their high charging power, these stations offer very short charging times. For instance, a BMW i5 needs to charge for just 10 minutes to gain 146 to 196 kilometres. With the BMW Wallbox or BMW Flexible Fast Charger, a BMW i5 can be fully charged conveniently at home in 8:30 hours.

*350 kW charging stations may not be accessible in every market. 

HOW MUCH ELECTRICITY AN ELECTRIC CAR NEEDS.

The power consumption for charging an electric car depends on various factors. However, your own driving behaviour, the associated average speed and outside temperature also play a role in this. Monthly charging power costs depend, above all, on the distance travelled and the electric car's consumption. Your own driving behaviour also affects this. Furthermore, the selected charging tariff and charging locations are also key factors in the electricity cost.

BMW Charging service life

BATTERY

OPTIMISING THE LIFE OF YOUR ELECTRIC CAR BATTERY.

The service life of a high-voltage battery can be affected by your own usage habits. Your high-voltage battery should mainly be charged at a low charging power at AC charging stations or at a wallbox. For general use, it makes sense to run your car with a battery charge of between 10% and 80%. You can set a charging target of 80% for this. An efficient and anticipatory driving style also helps to increase the range of the battery and optimise its service life.

As a global company, the BMW Group understands itself as an important part of society and takes reponsibility with regard to sustainability. Find out more about the principle of circular economy and the measures we take to reduce CO2 and to conserve resources.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

BMW X1 xDrive30e: Fuel consumption, combined WLTP in l/100 km[1][3][4]: 1.1–0.7; CO2 emissions, combined WLTP in g/km[1][3][4]: 24–16; Energy consumption, combined WLTP in kWh/100 km[1][3][4]: 19.3–16.8; Electric range, WLTP in km[1][3][4]: 71–85

Provided technical data are measured according to the WLTP, not NEDC.

[1] Official data for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, power consumption and electric range was determined in accordance with the prescribed measuring procedure and corresponds to European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the applicable version. For ranges, data determined as per WLTP takes into account any optional equipment (available on the German market in this case). For vehicles that have been newly type approved since 1 January 2021, only the official data according to WLTP exists. In addition, NEDC values are deleted from the certificates of conformity as of 1 January 2023 by EC regulation 2022/195. For more information about NEDC and WLTP measuring procedures visit www.bmw.com/wltp

Further information about fuel consumption and official model-specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the "Guideline for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electric power consumption for new passenger cars", available free of charge at all points of sale, at the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany, and under https://www.dat.de/co2/.

[2] Range depends on various factors, in particular: individual driving style, route characteristics, outside temperature, heating/air conditioning, pre-conditioning.

[3] Performance data of petrol engines apply to vehicles using RON 98 fuel. Fuel consumption data apply to vehicles using reference fuels in accordance with EU Regulation 715/2007. Unleaded RON 91 and higher with a maximum ethanol content of 10% (E10) may also be used. BMW recommends RON 95 fuel. For high-performance automobiles, BMW recommends RON 98 fuel.
