BMW Digital Charging Service in five easy steps.

To use the BMW Digital Charging Service features, you need a BMW i or BMW Plug-in Hybrid model equipped with option SA6AU Connected eDrive Services and with pre-activated ConnectedDrive Services. Within the first three years, you enjoy the BMW Digital Charging Service for free*. To add or extend the service period, simply visit the ConnectedDrive Store.

*vehicles built July 2018 onwards only.
  • Create a BMW ConnectedDrive account.
    Set up a BMW ConnectedDrive account or login to the “My BMW ConnectedDrive“ customer portal using your current user name and password at https://www.bmw-connecteddrive.com.
  • Add vehicle.
    In the “My BMW ConnectedDrive“ customer portal, add a vehicle that supports the BMW Digital Charging Service (BMW i or BMW Plug-in Hybrid model with option SA6AU Connected eDrive Services) using your vehicle’s identification number (VIN).
  • Login to the BMW Charging Portal.

    To login here, simply enter the username and password of your “My BMW ConnectedDrive” account. The BMW Charging Portal will automatically display all vehicles which you have registered at “My BMW ConnectedDrive”.

  • Set up the BMW Digital Charging Service.

    In the BMW Charging Portal, simply set up your home charging location and enter your personal energy tariff details once. Afterwards, you can use the BMW Digital Charging Service from your very first charging activity.

    If you already own a BMW i Wallbox Connect or a solar installation, you can add these to your BMW Digital Charging Service account. This gives you access to further BMW Digital Charging Service benefits – like preferred charging with solar energy*

    *based on estimated generation, additional installation elements may be required.

  • Set vehicle charging mode.

    If you do not use a BMW i Wallbox Connect to charge your vehicle, please set the charging mode to “charge with off-peak tariff“ in your vehicle, in the BMW Connected app, or in the BMW ConnectedDrive portal. For optimised charging via a BMW i Wallbox Connect, set the charging mode to “Intelligent charging”.
