PLUG-IN GUIDE

How to charge an electric car in The Netherlands

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, you'll need the charging cable. The cable can vary depending on the car model. It's thick with a large plug on either end. You can't miss it.

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.

Now to connect to the station. You may have to lift the cap first. It's important you do this step before activating the charging station.

You'll find it in the key card holder . Hold it in front of the card reader. Wait for the LED around the contact point to light up blue. Return the card. Easy as that!

UNPLUG GUIDE

How to unplug an electric car in the Netherlands

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:

Exactly how you would start any trip. You'll also need to take the charging card from 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 the 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!
