You’re about to go on a long drive in your electric vehicle, maybe even abroad, but do you know where you can charge your electric vehicle? Luckily, there are more than 285,000 charging points in Europe, and more are constantly coming. Your most important tool for when driving far, is one of the following apps:

The apps contain global and searchable maps on public charging points for electric vehicles. Charging points appear in the app, so you’re safe whilst on the road. To make sure that you get a good start to your drive, we’d like to give you an overview of your charging options with different charging providers and petrol stations.

Petrol stations

Petrol stations have become a strong provider of charging points. Besides that there are more charging points being established in Denmark on petrol stations (Q8, Shell, Circle K, OK and Uno X), some of these offer EV charging whilst you are abroad.

Q8 and Shell Recharge are among the biggest petrol stations that offer EV charging abroad, and more are constantly coming.

With the above-mentioned charging options, you can easily and safely go on a drive in Denmark and abroad in your electric vehicle.

Driving in the Nordics

If you are going to drive abroad, and especially in the Nordics, the Elton app is a good tool for the trip if the fuel cards are not enough, as Elton roams across many companies.

You can therefore download the app, create a user and add a payment card. (layout app. LeasePlan cannot handle settlement directly.)

Customer at OK

As a customer at OK (Charging at OK) (in Danish) you have access to charging points located nationwide in Denmark. OK continuously works on expanding their charging network, and new locations are added quickly. It’s of great advantage to combine with a roaming piece from Spirii, then you’re covered internationally as well.

But now the time has come, to which you have the possibility to charge your car at a Tesla charger, even if you have a different car brand. As Tesla has the most super chargers in Denmark, this is a big plus for electric vehicle users. You can also use Tesla’s charging network in Europe.
