BMW and EVgo plan 500-strong U.S. rapid charging network
The initiative will add to BMW’s ChargeNow network, which offers two years of free charging for customers of the i3. So far, this totals 100 charging points, and the first 50 units from the new batch are expected to be in place before the end of this year.
Robert Healey, Head of EV Infrastructure for BMW of North America, said: “With ChargeNow DC Fast, BMW i3 owners can experience ‘range confidence’ resulting from convenient, quicker DC Fast charging on the go, making longer EV trips more practical. The no cost charging sessions for BMW i3 drivers will become even more valuable over time, as more of these DC Fast Combo chargers become available.”
