BMW i7 buyers to get 3 years of free Electrify Canada charging

Electrify Canada and BMW Group Canada have announced a partnership that will offer buyers of the all-electric BMW i7 luxury sedan three years of complimentary charging across the Electrify Canada network.

The agreement will provide first owners of the BMW i7 with free charging for three years from the date of vehicle purchase. Drivers will have access to charging, charging history, locate stations, and check the status of chargers through the Electrify Canada mobile app.

Rob Barrosa, Vice President of Technology at Electrify Canada and Electrify America, said, “We’re excited to continue our work with BMW and extend it to Canada to help even more of their customers feel confident taking their EVs wherever they need to go. As more EVs like the BMW i7 come to market, fast-charging solutions from Electrify Canada and our ongoing work to expand charging access for customers will be critical to increasing EV adoption.”

This partnership marks the first time BMW’s flagship 7 Series has received an all-electric powertrain. According to Natural Resources Canada, the i7 yields a range of up to 512 km. The i7 can reach its peak charging power of 195 kW using Electrify Canada’s DC fast 350 kW chargers, the fastest speed commercially available today.

David George, President and CEO of BMW Group Canada, said, “As leaders in the luxury segment, we want to provide our flagship i7 customers with a premium charging experience. This charging agreement with Electrify Canada gives i7 owners a fast and convenient way to charge their vehicles when out-of-home and helps make a further case to go electric.”

Electrify Canada currently has 29 stations in BC, Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec, and expects to have more than 100 stations with over 500 chargers across nine provinces by 2026.
