In early 2018, BMW partnered with Southern California Edison to provide a $10,000 discount for any new BMW i3 purchase. The offer was available for all SCE customers and employees. Shortly after, BMW announced further partnerships with about a dozen more electricity providers in six other states as well as the District of Columbia to offer the same $10,000 discount on new i3 purchases (not leases).

According to InsideEVs, citing a BMW source, the $10,000 i3 utility discount will end simultaneously for all providers on July 31st, 2018. BMW says the program was extended longer than initially planned.

This discount was stackable, so it was available in addition to the Federal Tax credit, and any available State incentives. Also, all new BMW i3s come with BMW’s ChargeNow DC Fast free charging program, which gives the owner two years of unlimited DC Fast charging on the EVgo network.

PSEG in New Jersey and Long Island, New York.
