Were you aware that there are two methods for charging your BMW i7 M70 xDrive? The first option is to utilize a traditional wall plug, while the second is to use a charging station. However, if you are traveling, the usage of a wall plug is insufficient, and you will need to use a charging station for public charging. The speed at which your electric vehicle charges is dependent on the type of charging station or EVSE you use and the maximum charging ability of your vehicle. To view all the available charging possibilities for your BMW i7 M70 xDrive, along with the estimated time it takes to fully charge the battery from zero, refer to the following chart.
Electric vehicle (EV) charging methods in Europe can vary from country to country. Some countries primarily use 1-phase connections to the grid, while others mainly use a 3-phase connection. The table below shows all the possible ways to charge a BMW i7 M70 xDrive. However, some charging modes may not be available in certain countries. It is recommended to check with your local electric vehicle charging networks to find out which options are available to you.

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Fast Charging (10 → 80%)
Fast charging is essential for extending the range of your journey by adding the maximum amount of range in the shortest possible time. Once the battery reaches 80% state of charge, the charging power reduces noticeably. Therefore, traditional fast charging rarely exceeds an 80% SoC. The charging speed of an electric vehicle depends on both the charging station used and the maximum charging power that the EV can handle. The table below provides a detailed overview of fast charging the BMW i7 M70 xDrive.
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%
