BMW is expanding its engagement in electric mobility with the new BMW Digital Charging Service. According to the company, this service is convenient, cost-effective and green power-optimised that will connect vehicles with the world of energy.

BMW’s Digital Charging Service optimises charging technology for BMW Performance vehicles and will be extended in a later phase to other brands.

 

BMW’s Digital Charging Service is based on two core functions: Tariff and solar optimised vehicle charging. In the case of tariff-optimised charging, the BMW Digital Charging Service aligns the charging plan to the customer’s electricity tariff. In the case of solar-optimised charging, the BMW Digital Charging Service is aligned to the domestic photovoltaic system. DCS predicts the solar power based on the weather-forecast and the output of the installed photovoltaic system specified by the customer.

The new service is a part of BMW 260-degree ELECTRIC portfolio. The pilot markets for the new service are Germany and Netherlands and the service will be launched as early as 2017 with more countries to follow soon.
