BMW I Wallbox Pro is the second point where the electric cars and plug-in hybrids can be charged that the German company launches. It has a charging speed of 7.4kWh, that means that the Wallbox can charge in less than 3 hours an acumulator of BMW i3 up to 80% of its capacity.

The new charging station of BMW is commanded through tactil screen, it can use the house electricity and can be linked with Smart Home platforms.

BMW i Wallbox Pro can use the energy produced in own system, like an solar or wind installations, existing the possibility of classifying this type of energy against the classic one that can provide the energy not only from renewable sources. The system preferes the energy that comes from renewable sources to another one, as long as it is available.

BMW Life Drive is the first architecture of a car made especially for electric cars. It is made of 2 units: the Life module, the passenger cell made the carbon and the Drive module with suspension and drive components and high-voltage battery. There is no tunnel running through the middle of the car and it is more space for the passenger place. Life Drive lowers the car’s center of gravity, compensates the extra weight of the battery and also gives the BMW i an agility expected from all BMW cars.
I am fully in love with the different exteriors of BMW i8, they can be a strong characteristic for the person who owns one of them. Each of them is a part of BMW i owner and choosing the car the exterior can be the most delightful part to choose. BMW i8 remains good and powerful, but the personality makes the difference. Adore the features and enjoy the exterior.

What do new techniques of repairing mean?
New techniques of rearing BMW, introduced for the first time in Automobile Bavaria Otopeni, include solutions for aluminium, plastic and glass, through new methods of riveting and sticking in stead of traditional methods.This fact reduces the cost for the clients and the price paid by the insurance companies. For example the new technologies can repair a car affected by the hail, or some small scratches on the wind screen. In some cases the solution can remove the possibility of changing by only taking some pieces and replacing. With new technologies time and money are saved.
The advantages of the new techniques and where can they be applied
Only the models from the BMW Group Portfolio have access to this kind of service, that means Rolls-Royce, MINI and BMW. The good news is that this technology can enter the independent ateliers but well equipped, in some years and to serve all kinds of cars not only BMW.
