Hi BMW EV and PHEV Community,

I’m Jon, a PhD candidate in Chemical Engineering specializing in electrochemistry at the University of Washington. I’m working with folks at a new company in Seattle, Recurrent, with a goal of helping electric vehicle (EV) buyers understand the battery health and range of used electric cars. We are developing machine learning algorithms to predict future battery life and range across all major EV models.

Here’s where I need your help. We’re assembling a group of current EV drivers/enthusiasts who are willing to share anonymous access to their battery range and state of charge data over time in a variety of weather and driving conditions. At the moment, over 2500 EV drivers and enthusiasts have volunteered! While we have plenty of Tesla, Chevy and Nissan data, we need more BMWi3, i8, 5-series plug-in, 3-series plug-in, and X5 plug-in volunteers to share their vehicle data. To participate, you’ll need an active subscription to BMW Connected Drive (Connected Package or better), be US based, have a 2014 or later model (BMWi3) or 2017 and later model (All other BMWs mentioned). It’s automatic, no work on your end.

We are looking into how to expanded the remote connected service beyond just the US.

Here’s the signup link and FAQ. A nice added bonus: you’ll get a free monthly battery analytics report as we build up our comparative data.

So if you drive an EV and really want everyone else to drive an EV in the future, please consider volunteering your data. Let me know if I can answer any questions about the program or the company.

Sadly your automated sign up doesn't recognise UK postal codes.
Hi! Yes at the moment we unfortunately haven't expanded to the UK and are solely US based at the moment. Another forum member alerted me to the fact that this is actually mostly a UK based forum. Sorry about that! We will be pubilishing aggregate data in mid 2021 so hopefully that can still be useful to you and other non-US based owners until we are able to expand!
