Episode 2: Charging an electric car at home & locally

In this second episode, Maddie’s electric car arrives and she looks at options for how to charge it.

Fully Charged is very pleased to present the second episode of “Maddie Goes Electric” – a beginner’s guide to driving an electric vehicle.

In this episode Maddie’s first electric car arrives! She explains a little more about how she chose this one and takes it out for a spin to get used to the features (like ‘Regenerative Braking’).

Maddie puts some questions to some experts from the world of electric vehicles:

  • How do I charge my electric car?!
  • What’s the best way to charge at home?
  • And when away from home, at destination chargers?
  • What do the different electric car charge connectors do?

N.B. A “Ploughman’s” is a typical pub lunch in the UK, in case you were wondering!
