How To Charge Your Car

Charging your vehicle

Before heading to an Electric Highway  car charging station there are three things you’ll need to do:

1.  Download the Electric Highway app

You'll need to download the Electric Highway app to charge up on the network. It's easy to download, and easy to use too.

Just check out our  car charging app page to find all the information you need, and take a moment to watch our guide to using the app:

2. Check the charge point status with the app

We don’t often have problems with our electricity pumps, but it’s always best to check that the pump you want to use is live before you set off.

3. Brush up on how to charge your vehicle

If you're new to electric vehicles, be sure to read your user manual and have a look at our step-by-step car charging guides, listed below. EV manufacturers use a few different plugs and charging procedures, but don’t worry, we’ve got them all covered. Just click on the charging procedure that matches your vehicle.
