Schedule Your Installation

Select the bid of your choice. Your selected installer will then contact you to schedule a convenient time to install your home charging solution.




The BMW TurboCord provides two convenient charging solutions. The first option is to plug it into a standard household outlet (120v), which typically takes 7 – 28 hours to fully charge, depending on your vehicle. This is referred to as Level 1 charging. Your second option is to upgrade your electrical outlet to 240v, reducing the charging time to less than 8 hours. This is referred to as Level 2 charging. Upgrading your electrical outlet to use the BMW TurboCord as a Level 2 charger requires a certified electrician to install.  That's where BMW Installation Services comes in, quickly connecting you to a certified installer in your area.
