BMW i8 Charging Cables


Your BMW i8 supports a maximum of 3.6kW charging (Three Phase/16A) and uses a Type 2 Connector.

BMW i8 has an electric motor combined with a turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine. With both the electric motor and petrol engine, this vehicle has a top speed of 155mph and can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds.

Charging is done using an EV Cables Type 2 connector with a maximum power of 3.6kW. A fully depleted battery will charge in around 4 hours 15 minutes, but you will need a phase 3 grid connection to achieve this. 

This car was available first as a coupé then the Roadster was added to the collection. These are unique models thanks to the lightweight concept, LifeDrive. It consists of the Drive module, the chassis, and the Life module, the spacious passenger compartment. Together these create the perfect balance and sportiness.

The BMW i8 Coupé is a full-bodied sports car with an unforgettable design. It has u-shaped daytime running lights and LED rear lights as well as the double kidney grille. The dihedral doors move forward and upwards and are cut out to make access to the interior easier.

Our EV charging cables are backward compatible. They will automatically switch between 32 and 16 amps. So you can purchase more amps and phases for use on others cars / future-proofing and it’ll still work on your current car. Any cable lower than your cars maximum supported charging, will limit the change rate to the cable capacity.


Don't forget, your charge rate is also limited by your charge point.
