Charging guide

Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Do you know that you have two charging options available for your BMW i4 eDrive35? You can choose to use either a standard wall plug or a charging station. However, when you are out and about and need to charge your vehicle, public charging can only be done using a charging station as a wall plug is insufficient. The speed at which your electric vehicle (EV) charges depends on the type of charging station or Electric Vehicle Service Equipment (EVSE) used, as well as the maximum charging capacity of your EV. Our charging station website showcases a table that lists all available charging options for your BMW i4 eDrive35 including the estimated time required to charge the battery from empty to full.


Charging an electric vehicle (EV) in Europe can vary depending on the country you are in. While some European countries use 1-phase connections to the grid, others rely on 3-phase connections. The table below illustrates all the possible modes of charging for a BMW i4 eDrive35. However, certain charging modes may not be available in some countries. Therefore, it is advisable to verify the available options by consulting with local electric vehicle charging networks.

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

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Efficient fast charging is crucial for extending the range of your electric vehicle by adding the highest amount of charge in the shortest amount of time possible. However, it should be noted that charging power significantly decreases as the state-of-charge reaches 80%, so it is rare for a standard fast charge to go beyond 80% SoC. The charging rate for an electric vehicle is determined by both the charging station and the maximum charging power that the vehicle can handle. To quickly charge your BMW i4 eDrive35, please see the table below for a complete overview of available charging options.

  • 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%
