BMW AG is launching two attacks on one of the biggest obstacles to broader acceptance of electric cars such as its i3 model: the lack of fast recharging stations.

The German company unveiled a deal with U.S.-based NRG Energy Inc. on Monday to allow owners of BMW i3 electric cars to recharge their batteries free of charge through 2015 at NRG eVgo charging stations in California. The free fast-recharging offer responds to rival Tesla Motors Inc.'s offer of free recharging for owners of the company's Model S at Tesla-owned charging stations.
