A closer look at the BMW 740Le
Just like in the rest of the 740 line, a four-cylinder petrol engine is used here, which is linked to an electric motor with a 70 kWh capacity. Overall, this produces a power of 326 hp. Charging with a BMW 740Le charging cable is possible at 3.7 kW at a charging station and at 2.3 kW via a socket.
BMW 740Le charging cables
The correct BMW 740Le charging cable has a "Mennekes" plug or Type 2. It is a 1-phase cable with 16A. Charging takes approximately 4 hours, fast charging is not an option for this 3.7 kW battery. It is possible to use a charging cable with more phases, such as a 3-phase cable, but charging will always take place via 1-phase and always at 16 Amps. In terms of speed, you therefore win nothing by buying a phase 3 charging cable or phase 3 charging station. Look in the Cable Solutions Shop for the suitable cable for this car.
BMW 740Le charging stations
With a BMW 740Le charging station you cannot use fast charging, that is not an option with this hybrid vehicle. The charging time is somewhat shortened compared to charging at home via the socket, it is important to use a good quality cable such as that of DUOSIDA or Ratio.
