Costco advertises they sell chargers for EVs - maybe checkout Costco.com - usually don't sell junk and prices usually quite good (admission: I do not own an EV and am certainly no expert).

I ordered an X5 4.0 in the same color combo - FYI it's a good color choice (got it just as the virus started to spread). Replaced a 2013 X5. Vastly superior.
