Electric vehicles for newbies...everything you need to get started.

November 24, 2019

 

Are you completely new to EV driving?

 

You've bought an electric vehicle because you're an early adopter / want to do more to transition to zero-emission transport / just think the Tesla Model 3, Nissan LEAF or Hyundai Kona or Ioniq is THE best car you've seen (delete as applicable).

 

But now you're about to pick it up and have realised you don't really know what you're doing when it comes to charging up your EV quickly, intelligently and efficiently.

 

We say it a lot; having easy access to charging, especially at home, is key to having a great experience as a new EV driver.

 

So, if you're starting from scratch with your brand new electric vehicle, we've put together some easy steps to help you get the most from starting out on your electric driving journey.

 

 


Of course, these are just the basics of starting out...the rest you'll learn as you become more used to - and super nerdy - about driving your electric vehicle (believe us, you'll soon be boring your family and friends by talking about how much you've saved on fuel, the range you're getting and other exciting - but not to them - info like the rest of us!).

 

And, if you're wondering how to find the apps and groups mentioned above, here's a list to get you started:

 

We use and highly recommend the PlugShare app which is here - https://www.plugshare.com

 

You can also join online communities such as:
