2023 BMW i4 charging as driver overlooks sea

Every electric vehicle has slightly different battery capacities and ranges, and there are several types of EV chargers on the market. With so many variables, it can be difficult for Westlake Village drivers to know how long it will take to charge their new BMW i4. Rusnak BMW is here to help! In this guide, our team goes over all the charging options available for your BMW i4 as well as the estimated charging times for each so you can drive with confidence in your electric BMW sedan.

BMW i4 Charging Options

Three main types of charging are available to drivers in Malibu: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 charging. Which you choose will affect how much BMW i4 range you can get in a set amount of time. Take a look at the different EV charging types you can use for your BMW i4:

  • Level 1 Charging: The slowest type of charging, Level 1 charging can be done with nearly any domestic three-pronged 110V/120V outlet. As Level 1 charging can take days to fully charge a vehicle, it’s only recommended for short top-ups, not as your main charging method.
  • Level 2 Charging: Level 2 charging is one of the most common types of charging as it can be found in public EV charging stations or installed in your home for convenient overnight charging. BMW offers two recommended Level 2 chargers, the BMW Wallbox home charger and the Flexible Fast Charger for drivers on the go.
  • Level 3 Charging/DC Fast Charging: The fastest way to get the most BMW i4 range out of a charger is to use Level 3 chargers, sometimes called DC fast chargers. These chargers are only available at public EV charging stations near Los Angeles and can provide significant range in as little as 15 to 30 minutes.

Estimated BMW i4 Charging Times

Your BMW i4 charging time will depend on which EV charging level you choose to use. Below are some estimates of how long it will take to add 100 miles of range to your BMW i4 when it’s at a 10% charge:

  • Level 2 BMW Wallbox/Flexible Fast Charger (240V/9.6kW): 3 hours and 30 minutes – 4 hours and 30 minutes. 
  • Public Level 2 Charging (240V/11kW): 3 – 4 hours
  • Low-Powered Level 3/DC Fast Charging (125A/50kW): 36 – 48 minutes
  • High-Powered Level 3/DC Fast Charging (500A/250kW): 10 – 13 minutes
