BMW of North America expands its comprehensive BMW ChargeNow by EVgo programs with options that now provide 12 months of no-cost charging for drivers of Certified Pre-Owned BMW i3 EVs and BMW i8 plug-in hybrid sportscars in select markets.
Upon enrollment, drivers of CPO BMW i3s equipped with DC Fast charging will be able to take advantage of no-cost 30-minute DC Fast charging sessions and no-cost 1-hour Level 2 charging sessions at EVgo stations in 25 select markets* for one year. Drivers of CPO BMW i3s without DC Fast charging capability, and owners of CPO BMW i8s, can enroll to take advantage of no-cost 2-hour Level 2 charging sessions at participating EVgo stations.

“Extending the ChargeNow by EVgo programs to include Certified Pre-Owned BMW i models demonstrates the company’s commitment to supporting electromobility over the long-term,” noted Robert Healey, Head of EV Infrastructure for BMW of North America. “With the addition of CPO BMW i3 and i8 vehicles into ChargeNow by EVgo, we continue to make driving with BMW i as convenient and cost-effective as possible, whether our customer chooses to purchase a new or Certified Pre-Owned BMW i3 or i8.”

“We are pleased to further collaborate with BMW to support all BMW plug-in owners,” commented Robert Barrosa, Vice President OEM Strategy & Business Development. “The ChargeNow by EVgo CPO program is a great benefit to new electric vehicle drivers, enabling them to maximize their electric miles with on-the-go charging at the largest DC Fast charging network in the country.”

This latest offering complements the wide array of exclusive BMW public charging programs currently available as part of ChargeNow by EVgo. Other program options for new BMW i and BMW iPerformance vehicle owners include:

ChargeNow DC Fast. Currently, eligible BMW i3 drivers in key markets who purchase their vehicle on or after November 1, 2015** are eligible for 24 months of no cost, unlimited 30 minute DC and 1 hour Level 2 charging sessions at participating EVgo stations, with ChargeNow DC Fast. Originally introduced in July 2014 in California, the program resulted in the successful installation of more than 100 EVgo stations with DC Fast Combo (CCS) chargers throughout the state, while providing enrolled BMW i3 owners with no-cost access to these stations. With BMW’s continued support as part of the expansion of ChargeNow DC Fast, EVgo is currently in the process of installing 500 additional DC Fast Combo chargers across the US by the end of 2018, with more than 600 total EVgo charging stations offering DC Fast planned to be installed through this program. Fleet customers are not eligible for ChargeNow DC Fast. For a complete list of terms and conditions, please visit www.ChargeNowUSA.com.

With the September 2016 announcement of two additional ChargeNow by EVgo public charging plans, ChargeNow by EVgo Annual Pass and ChargeNow by EVgo Pay As You Go, all BMW i3, BMW i8 and BMW iPerformance drivers in participating markets can enroll for introductory pricing offers at participating EVgo chargers using the complimentary ChargeNow card that comes with the vehicle. These plans provide significant savings for BMW drivers in the 25 participating markets across the US.
