BMW Remains Ahead of the Electric Car Curve


At BMW of Bakersfield we're always ready for BMW to amaze us, which they do consistently and on a regular basis. But, BMW has topped itself with their latest innovation in the electric car market.

The car company is releasing a wireless charging pad for its newest electric models.

The wireless charging pad will be available for the 2018 BMW 530e iPerformance. The state-of-the-art charging station provides electric car drivers with a recharging option that works in their garage off of their WiFi network.

Drivers simply drive over the charging pad and the car and the pad work together to do the rest. BMW estimates the total charging time for the onboard battery to be approximately three and a half hours.

The high tech 2018 BMW 530e is expected to start arriving at dealerships in 2017.
