BMW has announced a new feature that will provide electric vehicle charging for its electric vehicles without the need for an app or card.
You’ll basically be able to connect your BMW EV to an electric charger that recognizes the vehicle and will pay for you.
Through pioneering innovations in digital vehicle functions, the BMW Group is once again helping to make electric mobility even more convenient and attractive. From mid-2023, Plug & Charge functionality will be available on first BMW models, allowing customers to charge electricity at public charging points without the need to use a charging card or app. The authentication required to start the charging and billing process is performed automatically by exchanging data between the vehicle and the charging station.
At the same time, BMW Charging is expanding its wide range of charging services with this feature offered by Digital Charging Solutions GmbH (DCS). The new function also allows Plug & Charge access to the BMW IONITY charging network.
This new feature is coming to BMW EVs from mid-2023, and is supposed to make it easier for BMW owners to charge their electric vehicles.
