The BMW Group have launched one of the world’s largest public charging networks, using a RFID card or App. Customers have access to more than 11,000 charging points within the UK and 173,000 across Europe.
BMW and MINI drivers will have access to charging points from a range of operators including: bp pulse, ESB, Osprey, Source London and ChargePoint Network UK (includes INSTAVOLT) and many more.
The scheme will offer pay-as-you-go and monthly subscription packages depending on driver usage. Users will be able to see a breakdown of charging history on the App or on the charging website, where customers can also find charging points.
Customers who purchase a new fully-electric or plug-in hybrid BMW or MINI via a BMW or MINI Centre are offered the ‘bp pulse’ package for 12 months, or free. Customers who purchase a new BMW iX3 or BMW iX vehicle via a BMW Centre are also eligible for the ‘IONITY Plus’ package for 12 months, without a subscription fee.
