  • A hybrid car combines an electric motor with a petrol engine

  • Always remember to charge the car when you finish your reservation

  • Our hybrids shift automatically between the battery and combustion engine

Starting and driving

How do I unplug the charging cable?

  1. Unlock the car

  2. Unplug the cable from the car. The cable has a time lock. If it's locked, you can lock and unlock the car again to unplug.

What should I do with the charging cable?

The cable is fixed in the car with a wire attached in the trunk. Bring the cable and the wire with you as you leave the station.

What should I do if the charging cable is missing?

Contact Customer Care, or report it in the damage log.

When should I drive on battery vs. fuel?

The car is designed so you won't have to think about when you use the electric motor and when you use the internal combustion engine. It's all automatic. Note that the car is silent when you start and drive on battery.

What functions are good to know about?

Our hybrid cars have three different drive modes:

  • Pure is the mode when you only use electric power. When the battery is fully charged you can drive about 45 km in up to 125 km/h.

  • Hybrid mode is optimal for most driving conditions. In Hybrid mode the car uses the electric motor and the internal combustion engine to best effect, maximizing efficiency while minimizing emissions.

  • Power combines the power of the electric motor and the combustion engine to deliver a truly high-performance driving experience.

What happens if the battery runs out?

Before the battery runs out, the car automatically starts running on the combustion engine. You don't need to do anything.

Ending a reservation

What should I think about when ending a hybrid reservation?

Always make sure the car is charging before ending your reservation.

Push the charging lid for it to open.

If the car is not charging, the app will prompt you to charge the car. If you for some reason can’t charge the car, tap the “Having trouble charging” and let us know why. After this you can end your reservation.
