BMW has confirmed that they met with Tesla earlier this week at the company’s California headquarters. While we don’t know exactly what was discussed, The conversation seemed to include everything from Tesla’s Supercharger quick charge system to the generation proliferation of EVs in large markets.
With Tesla open-sourcing all of their patents earlier this week, it’s not hard to imagine BMW integrating some of that technology (or at least interfacing with the Supercharger network) in future cars. It would give the i3 (and other future all electric cars) an immediate boost in terms of charging infrastructure both here and in Europe.
