2014 BMW i3 Electric Car Drivers Can Opt For Solar Charging Service

BMW’s first full-scale production electric car isn’t a vehicle done by half measures.

It’s uniquely styled, features high-tech carbon fiber reinforced plastic construction and the minimalist interior is awash with sustainable materials.

BMW thinks its customers might want to continue that sustainability through to the car’s charging, so has teamed up with SolarCity to offer i3 drivers an affordable solar electricity service to power their vehicles.

i3 customers will receive a 10 percent discount on SolarCity’s home solar offer, as part of BMW’s 360° Electric portfolio of EV-centric products and services. It means i3 owners could power their cars with clean solar energy cheaper than many regular utility tariffs.

As part of the package, i3 owners will be offered various flexible financing options, including packages with no upfront installation costs and 20 years of locked-in solar energy rates.

Solar charging is already popular with many electric vehicle owners, as a way of not only reducing energy costs, but also side-stepping the issues of charging electric vehicles on dirty electricity grids. SolarCity and BMW are hoping that the tempting new offers will encourage customers to make running their new electric cars even cleaner.
