A plug for fast charging
Charging an i3 or i3s should now be more convenient with BMW switching to the Type 2 CCS plug used in Europe and chosen by local operators as the standard for Australia’s emerging EV infrastructure. An 80 percent charge using a conventional domestic plug takes 15 hours. That’s halved when using a BMW Wallbox ($1750) on single-phase power. The time it takes to brim the last 20 percent of the lithium-ion cells is apparently too variable to put a figure on. Claimed real-world range is 200km for BEV models and 330km for REX variants.
