FAQ

The vast majority of e-cars are started by stepping on the brake and then pressing the start/stop button or using the car key as usual (depending on the model and car sharing provider). Note that e-cars are very quiet while driving and therefore other road users hardly hear them. To avoid high battery consumption, it is recommended to use devices with high energy consumption, such as heating, air conditioning or radio, as sparingly as possible.
