Moving from combustion engines to batteries.
Making the leap from traditional combustion engine-driven vehicles? Perhaps the biggest difference with electric vehicles is the need to charge the batteries. Unlike combustion engines, there’s currently no way to instantly add range to electric vehicles, as you would when topping up with petrol or diesel at dedicated stations.
Although ‘Range Anxiety’ can be an issue for new users, a simple change in approach will make all the difference. You may find a ‘little-and-often’ methodology works best, but either way, charging points can be found all over the country, even in local supermarkets, with more being added daily.
Zap Map is a great tool for planning longer journeys where charging on route is required, but can also show you chargers that are available locally.
It can be a little confusing when using public charge points, as the cost and network option vary. The Volt-Age team are on hand to help should you require assistance.
Zap Map is available online or as an Android/iOS app:
All of Volt-Age’s vehicles come with the necessary cables to charge at home, at work, and in public. We even include free charging at our site in Portsmouth when you hire from us.
