Are you familiar with the two charging alternatives that are offered for your BMW i4 M50? You have the option of charging your vehicle using either a standard wall outlet or a charging station. Nonetheless, if you are on the go, charging your electric car in public can only be carried out through a charging station, as a wall outlet will not suffice. The charging speed of your EV is determined by the type of charging station or Electric Vehicle Service Equipment (EVSE) utilized, combined with the maximum charging capacity of your EV. Please refer to the chart below for all of the charging possibilities available for your BMW i4 M50, including the estimated length of time required for a complete battery charge from empty.
Charging an electric vehicle (EV) in Europe can vary based on the country you are in. While some European countries rely heavily on 1-phase connections to the grid, others primarily use 3-phase connections. Our table below outlines all the possible charging options for a BMW i4 M50. It's important to note that some charging modes may not be available in certain countries. As such, we recommend checking with your local electric vehicle charging networks to determine which charging options are accessible for you.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)
Rapid charging is vital for increasing the range of your trip by providing the ideal amount of mileage in the shortest amount of time possible. However, as soon as the battery reaches 80% state-of-charge, the charging strength diminishes considerably. Consequently, a normal fast charge rarely surpasses an 80% SoC. The pace of charging an electric vehicle is determined by the charging station utilized and the maximum charging power that the EV can accommodate. The table presented below provides an extensive summary of fast charging for the BMW i4 M50.
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%
