Usually you don’t have to worry about charging our DriveNow BMW i3 as our team are always working to ensure our cars are fully charged. All you need to do is find it, drive it and drop it. We do however, have a recharging bonus for the BMW i3 which works much like our refuelling bonus. If your i3 has a battery level of 25% or less at the end of your trip, simply plug it into a Source London charge point in the DriveNow Zone, and we’ll automatically give you 20 driving minutes free as a thank you. You can find the nearest charge point using the in-car DriveNow map or by using the search function in the DriveNow app (tap on the ‘plug’ icon). How do I charge the BMW i3? Locate the nearest Source London charge point using the in-car map or your DriveNow app. Park in the charge point parking bay and switch off the engine. Retrieve the charge card which is in a wallet in the armrest between the driver and passenger seats, and get out of the car. Select 'Charge car' in the app and tap the card on the charge point so it unlocks. The charging cable to use will be in the boot of the BMW i3. Simply attach one end to the car and the other to the charge point. The plug socket on the car is where you would normally find the fuel cap on standard cars. Once connected, a flashing blue LED light around the charging socket on the car indicates that the car is charging. Once the car is charging, put the charge card back in the armrest and lock the car as normal by either selecting 'End Rental' in your DriveNow app or holding your customer card over the reader on the windscreen. Your DriveNow account will automatically be topped up with 20 bonus minutes*. How do I unplug the BMW i3 from a charge point? Retrieve the charge card which is in a wallet in the armrest between the driver and passenger seats. Tap the card on the charge point so it unlocks. Unplug the cable from the charge point first and then from the car. Put the charging cable back in the boot of the car and put the charge card back in the wallet in the armrest. If you ever need help with the charging process during your rental, you can find all the information you need in the app by tapping 'Charge' on the main app screen. Please note: If you leave the BMW i3 in an Electric Vehicle only bay (within the DriveNow Zone) it must be plugged into the charging point. If you do not plug it in you may get a parking ticket and will be charged. *You will only receive 20 bonus minutes for recharging only if the BMW i3 had 25% or less remaining charge at the time of charge.
