Have you gone electric?  If you have or are thinking about it, BMW has made it easy for you to go electric by connecting you to other the nearest charging stations through a downloadable app to your phone, Connected Drive, and by providing at-home charging stations.  


BMW eDrive (including BMW i) encompasses a holistic definition of electromobility, one that combines legendary high performance with groundbreaking innovation and intelligent sustainability.  That innovation includes thinking creatively about how to meet the wants and needs of BMW eDrive, and BMW i, owners, to maximize driver confidence and driving pleasure from the moment you get behind the wheel.     -BMW USA, 360 Electronic Lifestyle Overview




BMW created Connected Drive an application that allows BMW electronic owners to locate the nearest charging stations and displays in real time the availability of that station.  Connected Drive enables BMW owners to check the status and vitals of their BMW from the convenience of their phone. Navigation has been made easier for BMW eDrive and BMW i through calculating the travel time with the charge time to provide you with the information you need to plan your next trip.
