BMW is getting ready to introduce its 5th-gen batteries and drivetrain options to the world. The company will do so with the iX3 first, as the SUV based on the X3 platform will be the first production car to use the latest technology. After that we’ll see the production i4 and iNext coming with similar tech. Before they do, the Germans are launching a couple of new solutions for charging, that are meant to help customers get the most out of their EVs.
First up on the list is the introduction of the new BMW Flexible Fast Charger. This is an interchangeable adapter that works with both domestic and industrial power outlets. According to BMW, the Flexible Fast Charger can feed up to 11 kW into the battery and automatically adjusts itself depending on the type of power outlet you’re using. As for public charging, you can now get a BMW and MINI Charging Card that offers access to around 450,000 charging points across the world.
This includes around 24,000 charging points in Germany alone and
