Make any adjustments required to the seat, mirrors, etc.
Put your foot on the brake, press the blue button to turn the car on, and head out on your journey!
Remember if you put the vehicle into L (one down from D) this will allow you to go into automatic regenerative braking mode, which will kick on when you take your foot off the accelerator, allowing you to drive mostly with one pedal (except for when coming to sudden stops, which you use the regular brake pedal)
Don’t forget to stop to take some selfies of the car when you are out on your journey, and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org to help give our electric vehicle a bit of a boost!
If you anticipate needing to charge the vehicle on your journey we suggest you sign up with flo and Charge Hub and get their apps on your phone, once you activate the app, it communicates with the charging station, and directs you to follow its instructions. We also suggest that you order a flo charging card in case of connectivity issues and a BC Hydro EV App – we’ve found this has been of particular value at the BC Hydro fast charging stations.
If it isn’t fully charged, and you’re heading out on a longer journey, you can charge quickly at the fast chargers in Radium Hot Springs or Canal Flats.
If required, use Plug Share to find a charger along your journey to top up your charge.
Return the car to the District of Invermere by midnight on the day you booked it so it can be fully charged for the next day’s user.
Wipe down all touch points, take out any garbage and clean up any messes (a $50 excessive cleaning fee applies to those who ignore this request)
Don’t forget to plug it back in! To charge it, take the Noodoe card from the envelope marked ‘DOI Charging Card’ in the glove box and scan it over the Noodoe charging station until it registers the card. You can confirm it is charging by looking in on the driver dashboard, and it will light up with the amount of time it will take to charge.
Share your trip with your friends and family!
Pay the invoice that will be email to you, and then book again!
