  • Can you give me advice on charging?
    Yes! There are 2 ways to charge the BMW i3 1. Use the charging cable in the trunk of the BMW i3 to charge on a standard 3 prong outlet. The standard 110 volt charger will recharge the BMW i3 about ~5 miles in one hour. If the battery is fully depleted, then it takes about 10 - 12 hours for a full recharge. 2. Charging at a third party charging station. This is the most cost effective and time saving way to charge the BMW i3. There are a lot of third party charging systems all over the valley (download the app Plugshare to find charging spots). All of the charging systems (Blink/ChargePoint/ etc) have their own iPhone / Android apps for you to locate and track charging. Here are the most popular charging networks in the area. - Charge Point - Most of them are free, just download the app and create an account! When you arrive, hold your phone up to the charge point station to initiate a charging session. - Volta - Totally free, no app needed. Just pull in and plug in. Most are located at Whole Foods grocery stores but there is also one at the scottsdale quarter. - Blink - Never free, occasionally malfunctioning and unavailable, you'll need the blink app & create account to initiate a charge session.
  • Why does the range not say 150 miles when fully charged and full of gas?
    The official range of the BMW i3 is 150 miles total under normal driving conditions. This range can increase or decrease depending on driving conditions. The worst range I've ever got was 110 miles and the best range was 180 miles. Going lite on the pedal extends range.
