How do I start or end a charging process at a charging station?

SIXT share

  • Unlock the connector with the charging card from the car.
  • Depending on the provider, you will find the charging card in the center console of the car, in the glove compartment or below the windshield.
  • Then hold the card up to the reader at the station to activate it.
  • Check which charging station you are in front of. There are charging ports that already have a cable. If there is no cable, use the cable from the trunk.
  • Now connect the cable to the charging port and the car.
  • After successful connection, a corresponding message will appear on the charging station display. Don't forget to put the charging card back in its place in the car and you're done!
  • Disconnecting the charging cable

Unlock the car and open the tailgate.

  • Pull out the charging cable from the car first, then from the charging station.  
  • If the cable cannot be disconnected, press the lock symbol in the driver's door on the ID.3/ID.4 model. Everything ready?
  • Simply stow the charging cable in the trunk.
