The BMW i Wallbox is a home charging station for private users which allows them to charge their BMW i8 safely, quickly and easily.
The Pure model, one of two available options, ensures that the charging process is uncomplicated and reliable. As soon as the vehicle is connected with the Wallbox via the charge cable, the process starts automatically, but can be interrupted at any time by pressing the stop button. With the BMW i Wallbox Pure for home installation, the BMW i8 is charged within a maximum of two hours*.
The second option, the BMW i Wallbox Pro (available from April 2014), allows the BMW i8 to be charged to 80% of the maximum capacity in less than two hours*. In addition to the functions of the Wallbox Pure, the Wallbox Pro also has a colour display with touch function for intuitive operation and can store several user profiles. It also allows solar electricity from your own generator (e.g. form the solar carport) to be used for charging and can be easily integrated into local energy management and smart home systems.
With their ergonomic and high-quality emotive BMW i design, BMW i Wallboxes are the perfect match for your BMW i8. Like the vehicle itself, they are also produced to a large extent from recyclable materials. If required, installation can be carried out via the BMW i Wallbox Installation Service.
