“The collaboration with Electrify America is one more step on our road towards a sustainable future,” said Sebastian Mackensen, president and CEO, BMW of North America. “Charging availability is a key feature when it comes to electric vehicles. We’re excited to offer our customers access to charging that is fast, affordable and convenient, as we launch the next generation of all-electric from BMW.”

Utilizing in-car navigation, the myBMWappTM or the Electrify America app, BMW drivers will be able to effortlessly and reliably locate nearby charging stations, verify charger availability, and navigate to the charging stations.

“This is a very exciting time as more drivers are turning to e-mobility for their transportation needs to travel around town and across the country,” said Giovanni Palazzo, president and CEO of Electrify America. “Our coast-to-coast network of ultra-fast chargers is growing every week with more charging stations which are ready to welcome new owners of electric vehicles from BMW. We are delighted to collaborate with such a prestigious automotive brand.”

Electrify America operates the largest open network of ultra-fast chargers in the U.S. The company’s ultra-fast chargers are capable of delivering from 150 kilowatts (kW) to 350kW – the fastest charging speed available today. This can allow BMW iX and BMW i4 drivers to charge up to between 90 and 108 miles in as little as 10 minutes, respectively. Electrify America has 800 EV charging stations and about 3,500 individual ultra-fast chargers open or with construction completed in the U.S. By 2026, the company plans to more than double its infrastructure with 1,800 charging stations comprised of 10,000 individual chargers in the United States and Canada.

An Electric Future.

The BMW Group has been driving the transformation towards fully electric, connected mobility for more than a decade. BMW’s first purpose-built, fully electric vehicle, the BMW i3, was launched in 2013 alongside the hybrid-electric BMW i8 coupe in 2014.  Building on the success of those pioneering vehicles, BMW has continually developed and improved its electric drivetrain technology and currently offers plug-in hybrid electric variants of many of its most popular models including the BMW 3 Series, 5 Series, 7 Series, X3 and X5.  The fifth generation of BMW’s electric drivetrain technology are featured in the BMW iX and i4.    

With increased model availability and growing consumer trends, BMW expects that worldwide sales of its electric vehicles will rise by an average of 20 percent annually between 2025 and 2030.  By 2030 fully electric vehicles are expected to account for at least 50 percent of the BMW Group’s deliveries to customers. The BMW iX and i4 represent an important part of BMW’s future – an electric and sustainable future.
