How electric car subscription works

Can you plug an electric vehicle into a regular outlet?

Yes, all electric vehicle subscriptions come with a slow (trickle) charger that can be connected to a general-purpose outlet, or household power point. Charging your car with these chargers can be slow but they can safely charge the battery all day, or night without damaging it. Most feature automatic cycles that turn off the charger when the battery is at its optimum capacity.

Where can you charge my electric vehicle if you’re not home?

While home charging may be cheaper and easier day-to-day, it won’t serve you on longer journeys. For these trips, you’ll need to turn to the growing number of public charging stations. The Electric Vehicle Council provides a map of charging stations across Australia. Note that these may require a fee in the same way that you pay for petrol.

What happens if I run out of battery on the road?

If you subscribe to an electric vehicle and run out of charge when you’re not home, you have access to 24/7 Roadside Assistance Australia-wide. As a carbar Subscriber, you have unlimited callouts for flat batteries (charges), key lock-outs, flat tyre changes, breakdown, towing and more.

Can you help me install a home charger?

Subscription excludes tolls, infringements and home chargers. Costs to buy and install home chargers vary depending on where you live, which charger you purchase, and whether it is hardwired to your home or portable. JET Charge is our preferred partner, offering globally recognised turnkey electric car charging infrastructure.
