2022 BMW iX and i4 will be offered in the US with two years of 30-minute complimentary charging sessions, right from the date of purchase of the vehicle. The complimentary charging will be valid at all Electrify America public charging stations across the US at no additional cost, Insideevs reported.

The complimentary charging scheme is part of an agreement between BMW of North America and Electrify America for the carmaker's latest all-electric car models - the iX and i4, which are set to enter the US market in March. The offer is a way to promote electric vehicles in the country and is quite lucrative as the Electrify America network already includes some 800 stations and about 3,500 individual ultra-fast chargers open or with construction completed in the US.
