Are they going to sell these in all 50 states or is this a CA only car ?
The max the onboard charger can pull is 32amps @240v but as surfingslovac pointed out it will probably end up drawing slightly less like our ActiveE's do. So it should fully charge in 3.5hrs @240v. It will also have DC quick charge (CCS) but it's not known if it will be standard or optional.
It will be available in every state, and also in just about every Country that BMW sells cars in. It is going to have worldwide distribution and they are aiming at selling about 30,000 - 40,000 of them per year.
