The BMW i3 charges through an industry standard J1772 connector. The car can charge at a maximum of 32A/240V via a third party EVSE. This allows the car to fully charge overnight.
Starting with the 2015 model year, D.C. fast charging ability (called DC Quick Charge, DCQC) is standard. The i3 uses the CCS DC charging standard. In prior years, DCQC was optional.
The BMW i3 also comes with a mobile EVSE that can charge at 12A/120V.
