More and more people want to drive an electric car. If you drive it via the Carvolution car subscription, there are no high initial costs or financial risks. Once you have decided to buy a new car, the next step is to decide how to charge it. There are a number of ways to do this, whether it's at a charging station, at work or at a charging box at home. Find out everything you need to know about electric cars, home charging stations or evpass in this blog post.
Electric cars are booming
Electric mobility is booming. New models come onto the market every year. There is now an electric car for every budget. From the small car, for example, the BMW i3 with a range of 285 km and 170 hp, to the SUV with, for example, the Skoda ENYAQ, with a range of 531 km and 204 hp. If you want to drive a high-end electric car, the Polestar 2 is the vehicle for you. With a range of 450 to 480 km and 408 hp, you'll be on the right track.
But how do you charge these electric vehicles?
The charging box at home
Helion is the ideal partner for the installation of a home charging box. Helion is our partner for charging stations and via this link you can view the different charging stations on the homepage. You will find for example the Keba P30 c-series, Alfa Eve Pro-line or the Green Motion Home Two. It is possible to install an 11 kW or 22 kW charging station. The charging time for your electric car is 3 hours, but this depends on the charging power and the battery capacity. You can get non-binding advice from Helion, make an appointment for the installation or generate a quote for your charging infrastructure directly online. This will give you an immediate overview of what is required for the charging station at your location.
If you don't want to or can't have a charging station installed at your home, Carvolution offers you the possibility of a free annual membership of evpass. evpass operates the largest network of public charging stations in Switzerland. At the stations, there are integrated cables and plugs of all kinds for every electric vehicle. As a Carvolution customer, you benefit from a free annual membership and conveniently charge at preferential conditions. Each charge via the evpass network is charged at CHF 0.45 per kWh instead of the usual CHF 0.50 per kWh. In addition, you do not have to pay the basic fee of CHF 1.50 per charge.
It's up to you to decide whether you want to install a charging box at home or whether you are satisfied with the evpass membership. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages. With the charging box at your home, the initial costs are higher, but in the long run the investment is worth it. If you prefer not to have high initial costs and you drive an electric car first to see if you like it, then joining evpass is certainly a good choice.
Either way, your adventure with a new electric car from Carvolution is waiting for you.
