Additionally, owners of BMW i3 vehicles without DC Fast charging capability can enroll for unlimited access to two-hour Level 2 charging sessions for a year for $39. This offer is available to BMW i8 and iPerformance vehicle owners as well.

Additionally, owners of BMW i3s that were purchased after November 1, 2015 can enroll in the current ChargeNow DC Fast program, and receive a 24-month membership at no cost, with unlimited 20-minute DC and one-hour Level 2 charging sessions.
