BMW i3s 120Ah Home Charging Guide
The wonderfully designed BMW i3 is available with a 120Ah (or 42.2kWh) battery which offers a WLTP range of 193 miles. It's so good that it has outlasted the Range Extender edition which featured a small petrol generator to boost the range. This sporty i3s version offers a bit more performance than the standard i3, completing the 0-62mph sprint in 6.9 seconds.
Charging time for the BMW i3s 120Ah is about six hours using a dedicated home charge point like those below. If you use a public rapid charger, you can charge the battery to 80% in about 36 minutes.
