Munich. The BMW Group is setting the course for the electric future of mobility and will install over 4,100 charging points for electrified vehicles at its German locations by 2021. The new charging infrastructure enables BMW Group employees to charge their cars conveniently at their workplace with attractive conditions. Charging options at work are becoming increasingly important as more and more employees use BMW Group electrified vehicles. Around half of the charging points will also be open to the public.

Klaus Fröhlich, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, responsible for Development, emphasizes: “A good charging infrastructure is one of the fundamental prerequisites – alongside range and competitive costs – for the acceptance and growth of electric mobility. This is why the BMW Group is again making progress and investing systematically in the expansion of the charging infrastructure at our German locations.”

The plans for Germany include mainly AC (alternating current) fast charging stations with an output of 11kW, but also DC (direct current) fast charging stations with an output of 50kW. The power supply comes from renewable energies. The majority of the charging points will be installed in the greater Munich area. Further locations are Berlin, Leipzig, Regensburg, Landshut, Wackersdorf and Dingolfing. Comprehensive user management via the CHARGE NOW access card enables people to use the system continuously, easily and without restrictions while also offering complete cost transparency.

The BMW Group is also setting standards in terms of charging infrastructure. Since 2013, the BMW Group has implemented 50 projects with partners worldwide and has already installed more than 15,000 public charging points, including the establishment of the charging infrastructure at BMW dealerships. In 2017, the BMW Group, together with other partners, founded the joint venture IONITY, a pan-European high-power charging network that enables electric mobility over long distances. To this end, IONITY will construct and operate around 400 rapid charging stations with charging capacities of up to 350 kW along the main traffic axes in Europe by 2020.

With a market share of 21%, the BMW Group is the market leader for electrified vehicles in Germany. This means that the BMW Group sells more than twice as many electrified cars as the market average*. For the sixth year in a row since its market launch in 2013, the fully-electric BMW i3 increased its sales and was able to nearly double the number of vehicles sold in Germany in the first nine months of this year compared to the previous year.

By 2021, a quarter of the vehicles sold by the BMW Group in Europe will be electrified, a third by 2025 and half by 2030.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
