Common Questions

Can I charge my car at any EV charge point?

You can charge your electric car at almost any charging station as long as your charging cable works with the sockets and plugs at the station.

Charging stations have different sockets and plugs depending on what kind of car you have, where you are, and whether it's an AC (fast) or DC (rapid) charging station. Read all about how to use electric car charging points here.

How do I get my first 4,000 miles of charge for free?

To get the 4,000 free miles you'll need to switch to Intelligent Octopus Go, the energy tariff for EV drivers. It's especially designed for EV charging and keeping costs low. Find out more here.
