Digital Charging Service optimises charging and integrates
electric vehicles into a appetite market


Munich. BMW i is expanding a rendezvous in electric
mobility with a new BMW Digital Charging Service (DCS). The
intelligent use for predictive, convenient, cost-effective and
immature power-optimised charging is joining vehicles with a world
of energy. Thus BMW i is a initial automobile manufacturer to offer
a business a complement that cleverly incorporates charging into
bland life and during a same time helps to extremely reduce
charging costs. The Digital Charging Service optimises charging
record for BMW i and BMW iPerformance vehicles and will be
extended in a after proviso to other brands. Pilot markets for a new
use are germany and a Netherlands in early 2017, subsequently
some-more countries will follow.

After activation, a use carries out a charging routine fully
exclusively and autonomously. The BMW Digital Charging Service is
formed on dual core functions: Tariff and solar optimised vehicle
charging. In a box of tariff-optimised charging, a BMW Digital
Charging Service aligns a charging devise to a customer’s
electricity tariff. Cost-efficiency of a charging routine is
softened and a automobile is automatically charged during a lowest
electricity rates. In comparison markets, BMW i cooperates with
innovative appetite providers, so that business are even means to
accept cost reimbursements. In a box of solar-optimised charging,
a BMW Digital Charging Service is aligned to a domestic
photovoltaic system. DCS predicts a solar appetite formed on the
weather-forecast and a outlay of a commissioned photovoltaic system
specified by a patron and establishes a charging plan. In this
way, a volume of electricity not consumed during a time of being
generated in a home can also be used for cost-efficient charging of
a electric vehicle. The automobile is automatically charged in optimum
multiple with a self-generated solar power.

The new use is partial of BMW 260°ELECTRIC portfolio. More
information can be found during

BMW i business can easlily activate a use in their BMW
ConnectedDrive portal.

System provider for CO2-free mobility. Under the
360°ELECTRIC tag BMW i brings together given 2013 already a wide
operation of products and services that go distant over a electric car
itself and paving a approach to a wholly emissions-free mobility. The
formation of a appetite zone as a subsequent accompanying step within the
serve growth of electro mobility plays a critical purpose in a BMW
Group strategy.

The BMW Digital Chargung Service is a outcome of extended investigate and
cooperation-projects in a USA (BMW ChargeForward) and Germany (eMOBILie)

Furthermore: New BMW we Wallboxes With the
introduction of a Digital Charging Service BMW i is rising two
additional BMW i Wallbox  models for available and quick charging in
a garage during home or in a private parking space. Thanks to further
grown charging electronics, they are now means to handle
three-phase charging currents of adult to 22 kW. The top-of-the-range
indication is a BMW i Wallbox Connect, that facilities a factory-set WiFi
tie and is therefore an ideal compare for a innovative Digital
Charging Service. Furthermore, it is not usually probable to record the
volume of electricity generated around a BMW i Wallbox Connect
alone for any automobile though also to trade a information following the
charging process, that is, for example, essential for recording
charging costs.

About BMW i and BMW iPerformance BMW i is a code of a BMW Group,
personification a purpose of an incubator for networked mobility services,
idealist automobile concepts and a new bargain of reward that is
strongly tangible by sustainability. BMW i is represented in 54

regions) and a BMW i8 (plug-in hybrid sports car) and BMW
iPerformance automobiles (all BMW plug-in hybrids). BMW i is also
compared with DriveNow (car sharing), ReachNow (CarSharing 2.0),
ChargeNow (easy entrance to a world’s largest charging indicate network),
ParkNow (simple location, reservation and remuneration of parking spaces),
a try collateral association BMW i Ventures (investment in start-up
enterprises with a concentration on civic mobility), BMW Energy (services
around appetite optimisation) and a Centre of Competence for Urban
