Electra, the leading French pure-player in fast charging of electric vehicles, has placed the user experience at the heart of its concerns since its creation. After having invented the reservation of charging points and the opening of barriers with Station Access, the company now offers Autocharge: the functionality that allows you to plug in your car and start charging automatically. It's even easier than recharging a combustion vehicle, since the billing is done directly, no need for an app, recharging pass or bank card!

One goal: to offer the world's easiest charging experience
No more identification via the Electra app or via a charging pass before starting to charge. With Autocharge, the car is identified and the charging process begins by simply plugging in. Charging then takes place automatically as soon as the connector is replaced at the charging station.
In concrete terms?
If you are an Electra app user, the next time you charge at an Electra station, the Autocharge feature will be offered, just activate it with a click, plug in the connector and let yourself be guided.
The following times, there is no need for an app, simply connect the charger to the vehicle and the charging process will start automatically. At the end of the charge, by plugging the connector back in, payment will be made directly.
CarPlay makes it even easier
The combination of CarPlay and Autocharge democratises the most seamless charging experience on the market. You can reserve your charging station and be guided to your spot directly from your car screen, then plug in the connector for fully automatic charging and payment.
A service that meets users' expectations
Nearly half of French people who own a combustion engine vehicle plan to replace it with an electric vehicle in the coming years*. But this transition is held back for many users by the fear of complexity. To make recharging more relaxed, Electra has developed a solution that provides an intuitive and innovative user experience via connected charging points and an optimised mobile application.
The user can reserve a remote terminal in a few seconds and be easily directed to the nearest one depending on the distance,
