BMW recently announced that all four ChargeNow by EVgo public charging programs have been expanded to include all EVgo DC Fast and Level 2 charging stations across the United States, creating an exciting incentive for current BMW i and iPerformance drivers - as well as for people interested in joining the legion of BMW electric vehicle (EV) and plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) drivers who are already promoting environmental responsibility while enjoying the unparalleled luxury and performance of a BMW vehicle. EVgo stations can be found in more than 50 metro areas across 33 states, allowing more than 92 percent of current BMW EV and PEV drivers to enroll and enjoy the benefits of no-cost and specially priced public charging from ChargeNow by EVgo.
The expansion of these ChargeNow EVgo programs is exclusive to BMW i and iPerformance drivers, lowering their total cost of vehicle ownership by allowing them to take advantage of no-cost or specially priced public charging sessions at all EVgo stations throughout the United States.
The four programs:
- ChargeNow DC Fast, for eligible BMW i3 owners, offers 2 years of no-cost charging sessions at EVgo stations.
- ChargeNow by EVgo CPO, for Certified Pre-Owned BMW i3 and i8 drivers, provides 1 year of no-cost charging sessions at EVgo stations.
- ChargeNow by EVgo Annual Pass, allows any BMW i or iPerformance driver to enroll and pay one low price, then charge for free for a full year.
- ChargeNow by EVgo Pay As You Go, offers any BMW i or iPerformance driver the ability to enroll and pay $0 upfront, then enjoy 20-30% BMW-exclusive savings for a full year.
Through the program expansion, BMW drivers can enjoy ChargeNow by EVgo programs at any of the more than 668 currently available EVgo DC Fast chargers, plus supporting EVgo Level 2 charging stations. In 2017, an additional 50 or more EVgo DC Fast charging stations are expected to be installed and will also be included in all ChargeNow by EVgo programs. By charging a BMW i3 vehicle at a DC Fast charger (available to all BMW i3 vehicles with DC Fast capability), drivers can add up to 75 miles of vehicle range in just 30 minutes - or up to 80 percent in as little as 25 minutes.
Eligible BMW owners can easily enroll in the ChargeNow by EVgo programs by inputting their VIN and ChargeNow card number at www.ChargeNowUSA.com. Drivers of new BMW i and iPerformance vehicles can find their complimentary ChargeNow card in the BMW Portfolio located in their vehicles glovebox.
