This SAE Combo Connector DC Fast Charger is displayed in the ChargePoint booth at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week in Las Vegas. It appears to be the same 24 kW Bosch DC Fast Charger that BMW is offering through a special program to their dealers to charge the i3.

This compact unit can be wall mounted and can charge a BMW i3 to 80% in about 30 minutes. The price is under $10,000. BMW is expected to announce the rollout of their own fast charger network at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The unit on display at CES is branded with the ChargeNow logo of the BMW program that is offered to i3 customers.
