Electric cars are now a serious alternative to conventional engines for all your driving needs, no matter the distance. And it’s never been easier to charge at home, at work or on the road.

See below for information about charging your electric car, including the different types of connector, cables and charging points available for you to use.

Home smart EV charger

For faster charging you can install a specialised smart EV charger, provided you have access to off-street parking. Smart chargers are more powerful than a domestic socket and will charge an Enyaq 80 in 13 hours.

Three-pin plug

You can plug your car into charge using a regular three-pin domestic socket. Domestic plugs run at 2.3kW and will charge a Škoda Superb PHEV in around five+ hours.

Rapid charger

These are usually found in motorway services or on main roads. They use a high-power AC or DC supply to get you charged up in minutes instead of hours. Incredibly, they’re capable of charging your electric vehicle to 80% in as little as 30 minutes.

Charging with ChargeNet

ChargeNet and Škoda have partnered to ensure you’re fully equipped to tap into New Zealand’s fast EV charging network.

Every new Škoda Enyaq will come with a Škoda / ChargeNet RFID fob that gives you easy access more than 300 fast charging points across the country.

Where can I charge my Škoda EV?


The Charging Map represents the public charging network and allows the user to find charging stations compatible with Škoda EV’s. The information that is available regarding individual charging stations is address, charging point operator, a number of charging outlets, types of charging outlets, outlet kW output, methods of authorization, nearby amenities, and information on whether the charging station is out-of-service. Navigation to the selected charging station is provided via re-direction to Google Maps. Škoda Auto a.s. is unable to guarantee the operating conditions or accessibility of a charging station. The route planning functionality allows the user to plot a route on the map and display charging stations along the plotted route. The displayed time for the route does not include the charging time required to complete the route. The number of charging stops needed may differ from the individual real-life scenarios, as the range depends on different influencing factors such as individual driving style, outdoor temperature, and other factors. All calculations are based on WLTP values. All information displayed serves only as an estimate.
