Christchurch to Akaroa

Distance: 80 km - Drive time: 1hr 20min

Both the BMW i3 and Hyundai Ioniq have a 200km range, however with the heater/AC running we suggest you plan to charge along the way or in Akaroa. We recommend you book a Hyundai Ioniq for longer trips.

HANDY THINGS TO KNOW

  • Charge Net is a paid public charger network – join at www.chargenet.co.nz 

  • Yoogo Share cars are TYPE 2,  on the DC chargers this is the CCS/SAE plugs

  • DC Fast Chargers (orange icon) take approx. 20mins to charge to 80%

  • AC Chargers (green icon) take approx. 3hrs to charge to 80%

  • Download the PlugShare app to locate live information of chargers enroute

  • The Yoogo Share Access card allows you to access the Orion Free chargers in Canterbury

  • Free chargers are often busy. If they are un-occupied, it is always a good idea to top up.

 

BEFORE YOU LEAVE

  • Complete your usual vehicle check for damage and cleanliness

  • Check the boot, there should be 2 charging cables
