Seamless charging today with AutoCharge
EV driving can be challenging and frustrating, especially for those new to EVs who need to navigate multiple apps, RFID cards, and payment methods. As part of our effort to make charging more efficient, we've released AutoCharge.
With AutoCharge, you can forget about complicated payment methods or authentication processes. Simply plug in your EV, and AutoCharge takes care of everything else.
How it works
- When registering your car on the Monta app, Monta links your car’s unique ID to your Monta account.
- Plug your car into supported CSS chargers on the Monta network.
- The CSS charger will communicate with the car and receive payment details.
- Payment and charging start automatically.
How can you use AutoCharge?
To use AutoCharge, you need an electric vehicle with a CSS connector and a unique, non-shared vehicle ID. Some cars have shared codes and cannot use AutoCharge, such as:
- Audi e-tron (model 2018, cannot be guaranteed for model 2019) & Q4 e-tron
- Cupra Born
- Lucid Air
- Maxus eDeliver
- Mazda MX-30
- Volkswagen e-Up!, e-Golf, ID.3, ID.4 & ID.5, ID.Buzz
- Seat Mii electric
- Skoda Citigo e-iV & Enyaq iV
- BMW iX1 & BMW i7
- Rolls-Royce Spectre EV
If you have a compatible car model, check out our guide on how to get started with AutoCharge.
AutoCharge works with any DC charger or AC charger with ISO 15118-3 capable hardware. It works automatically with any DC charger because they have a direct connection with the vehicle, making charging more efficient. See which charge point models support AutoCharge here.
We hope you find the AutoCharge feature helpful for your EV charging needs. As always, we welcome your feedback to improve our services.
