Munich. Starting today, BMW customers in France and Germany can activate the Personal eSIM of their vehicle with Transatel’s Ubigi 5G data plans to enjoy additional infotainment features and WiFi connectivity, irrespective of their primary network operator for their regular smartphone subscription. The service will be available for BMW vehicles with BMW Operating System 8, 8.5 and 9* with the option Personal eSIM (SA6PA). Depending on the vehicle model, the Personal eSIM enables the in-vehicle WiFi-Hotspot, first-row video streaming services and in the case of 7 series vehicles equipped with the BMW Theatre Screen, a wide variety of entertainment powered by Amazon Fire TV.

Following Germany and France, the service will soon be rolled out to other European countries, too. To activate it in eligible BMW vehicles, owners can conveniently configure their Personal eSIM through the My BMW App and subscribe to Ubigi’s European data plans (EU 27 + UK + CH). Cost of the service is €10 per month for unlimited data allowance**.

Dr. Céline Laurent-Winter, Vice President Connected Vehicle Platforms at BMW Group: “The partnership with Ubigi now offers our customers additional flexibility connecting their vehicle with an unlimited data plan. This enables even more digital content in our BMW fleet.”

“Since 2018, our footprint in the connected car industry has been significantly growing and we look forward to our extended connectivity partnership with BMW Group in the coming years,” said Jacques Bonifay, CEO of NTT DATA’s global MVNO Transatel.


* The function Personal eSIM is not yet active in vehicles with BMW Operating System 9. It is expected to be enabled over-the-air at a later point in 2024.

** Fair Use Policy with 100 GB high speed and roaming in 27 countries in Europe.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the “Manual on the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new cars”, available at sales outlets free of charge, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at
