WHY CHARGE?

Earn credit by charging SHARE NOW electric cars

Give it some spark! When you charge a car that’s running low on juice – you earn driving credit. Each time you fully charge a car that has less than 35% battery level, you'll earn 5,00 € of credit. This can be used to pay for your trips and trip-related costs. Just make sure you end your trip after you charge the car!

PLUG-IN GUIDE

How to charge an electric car in Germany

Charging an electric car is fun and – dare we say – addictive! We don't expect you to charge our electric cars after every trip. However, if you do, the cost of charging is covered by us and we'll even give you SHARE NOW credit as a thank you. Here's how to do it:

Once you've found a charging station, the next thing to locate is the charging card. You'll find it either in the the glove compartment or the armrest. Use the card to activate the charging station.

This unlocks the port so you can plug the charging cable in.

Connect the cable to the car first. You'll find the plug where you'd usually find the fuel cap on a regular car. Don't worry, it's completely safe.

You can also return the charging card to where you found it at this stage. End your trip in the app and you are done!

UNPLUG GUIDE

How to unplug an electric car in Germany

One of the perks of free-floating car-sharing is that you can locate electric cars anywhere throughout the Home Area. If you are looking for maximum range, though, we recommend starting your trip in a car that is waiting at a charging station, full and ready to hit the road. Here's how to unplug electric cars:

Remember to start the rental before unplugging the car.

Use the card you've just fetched from the car to end the charging process at the charging station. You can then unplug the cable from the charging station.

Remember, the charging cable is connected at both ends, so you'll need to unplug it from the charging point on the car too.

And return it the boot of the car. Put the card back in the holder too. You're now good to go - enjoy the drive!
