CHARGER INSTALLATION: 3 Simple Steps
Once you have purchased a charging station for your BMW...
Home EV Readiness Survey
Enter the address of where you want the charger installed. We will confirm if there are pre-qualified installers nearby. You will then enter your email address, and promptly receive an email containing a self-guided Home EV Readiness survey. The survey will save you time and help your contractors provide you with a more accurate bid.
Receive Installation Bid
Up to three installers then submit a personalized, no-cost and no-obligation bid for your home charging installation.
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.
CHARGING YOUR BMW
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.
