Firstly EV drivers don’t leave charging to the last minute, as Petrol and Diesel drivers are wont to do, they charge the battery whenever convenient. Most often whilst sleeping.
The AA, RAC and Green flag provide breakdown cover for Electric vehicles.
The RAC says that they can recharge 99% of electric vehicles stranded at the roadside.
As with the RAC’s Fuel Assist service, customers with an EV that’s run out of charge will receive a top-up boost, allowing them to progress to the nearest charging point.
The EV Boost system is powered by an electrical generator mated to the patrol van’s 1.9-litre diesel engine, and sends charge through an inverter to the power unit in the stranded EV.
