Tip #1 Roadside Assistance. 

Well, the first step that you should take if your car runs out of charge is to call for roadside assistance. Since you’re not able to bring gas to your, this is the next best thing! But, when calling roadside assistance, be sure to let them know you have an EV so that they can come with the right equipment. They will need to bring a flatbed, tow truck, or a portable charger.

  • A flatbed truck is the only type of tow truck that can haul an electric car due to the electrical systems and other functions of the car. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
  • And, of course, roadside assistance will bring you to the nearest charging station if you would prefer that, which is totally understandable!

After all, you wouldn’t want to pay for an auto service repair, too.

Tip #3 Charge Your Battery. 

Lastly, you can have someone bring you a portable charger for your car. Some companies are finally introducing portable chargers for your N Charlotte Toyota electric car.
