Electric driving

Why go electric?

You may have noticed that more and more electric cars are appearing on the streets. This makes sense, because electric driving offers nothing but advantages – both for the planet and for you as a driver. Discover the main advantages.

What is electric driving?

There's no doubt we'll all be driving electric vehicles in the foreseeable future. What many drivers are still unsure about, however, is whether to go fully electric or park a hybrid car in their garage. But what exactly is the difference between a hybrid, plug-in hybrid and fully electric vehicle? We break down the differences for you here.

Electric driving: is it something for me?

Driving range and charging stress: these are the two main headaches for new EV drivers. With a petrol or diesel car, these were things you didn't have to worry about much – if at all. However, after making a few minor adjustments to your driving habits, you'll be driving an EV without even thinking about it. And with the following tips and tricks, you’ll be ready for anything.

The 'Charging at Home' tool: discover in a few clicks the charging speed at your home!

It goes without saying that a home charging system offers superb convenience for electric vehicle drivers. In most homes, it is easy to connect a home charger to the network. There's no need to worry about safety, either: charging stations have 'Dynamic Load Balancing', a system that prevents overloading while you run other electronic devices in your household. This means the car will charge a little slower in the event of a peak in consumption.

You can check for yourself whether a home charging system is suitable for your home by using our 'Charging at Home' tool. You will receive advice tailored to your specific situation directly after answering a few questions.

How do you charge your EV?

Stressed out about charging? There's no need to be. A fully charged battery will take you a long way. If you have to charge anyway, you can count on an ever-expanding network of charge points.
