There are no special tariffs for charging abroad. Your tariff is valid in all European markets where Elli has charging stations.
A RFID Card (radio-frequency identification) is a card that is necessary to sign up. You will be able to order it in the process of subscription.
Furthermore, you need the card to activate your connected Wallbox, and at many stations you can start the charging process with the card.
Currently there are two possibilities to start and stop your charging session at public charging points. Either you authorise the session with the RFID card (by holding it to the card reader of the charging point). When you start a charging session with the RFID card, you must end it also with the RFID card.
Another way to start the charging session is to start it via the App. Select the charging point, connect the cable and click on “start charging” – after a couple of seconds (depending on your internet connection and the servers of the Charging Point Operator) the session will start.
*Charging times vary in relation to the following factors: external and battery temperature, maximum voltage of your charger system and its current condition, as well as battery condition and the use of other electrical equipment in the car during charge.

The e-HYBRID (PHEV) sits somewhere between combustion-engine and full-electric vehicle (EV). An e-HYBRID is capable of all-electric compulsion thanks to its battery. When fully powered up, you can drive between 25 to 70 kilometres solely on stored battery power. On short trips, the e-HYBRID operates like a fully electric vehicle (BEV) and doesn’t need to use gasoline. However, unlike a BEV, it can revert to regular hybrid operation once its electric range is depleted. Charging your e-HYBRID reduces fuel use, but it’s never mandatory.
Due to its size, a full battery charge cannot be achieved solely via the on-board generator and so requires plugging into an electrical outlet or charging station. The innovative interplay between both the electric and combustion motor allows for fuel-saving and lowers exhaust emissions while providing the user with an exceptional driving sensation.
On shorter journeys, a plug-in hybrid generally runs on pure electric power provided it makes sense, such as in urban areas. For maximum efficiency in different driving situations, such as longer journeys or when rapidly accelerating, it uses the combined power of the electric motor and combustion engine. If the battery which powers the electric motor has no charge, the vehicle will solely use the combustion engine.
Semi-hybrids, which are not charged using a power cable, use the electric motor to assist the combustion engine.
In hybrids, the electric motor and battery are larger than in semi-hybrids. Hybrids can power the vehicle using the electric motor for short distances and recharge its battery using the motor or through regenerative braking.
A plug-in hybrid can be recharged by literally plugging it into a charging point at home, or in a public one. It offers greater pure electric autonomy thanks to the larger battery and electric motor. The plug-in hybrid allows many people to make their normal commute to and from work using the emission-free, electric powered engine.
Driver’s of a plug-in hybrid benefit from an almost silent driving experience in all-electric mode, as well as additional acceleration power (torque) thanks to the electric motor.
Many plug-in hybrid vehicle owners already manage most of their journeys in electric mode as daily trips are usually well under 50 kilometres in range. Depending on your electricity tariff, considerable savings are made when compared to a vehicle with a classic combustion engine. But with a plug-in hybrid, you never have to give up complete autonomy: if the battery charge or capacity is not sufficient, the combustion engine will be automatically activated as required.
This category of vehicles also has economic advantages: through direct aid and subsidies for electric vehicles. And indirectly, with tax advantages thanks to their lower CO2 emissions.
Most users charge their vehicles at home throughout the night, with a Wallbox unit that can be installed in the carport or garage. Others are able to charge their vehicle at work or at public charging stations which are fortunately becoming easier to find.
A plug-in hybrid can be charged from an outlet, a Wallbox system or a public charging point. The maximum efficiency of a plug-in hybrid is achieved with a fully charged battery, so the possibility of charging at home or at the workplace should be taken into consideration. It is recommended that you charge your plug-in hybrid vehicle as many times as you can, so as to take full advantage of the additional electric motor.
The electric range of a plug-in hybrid vehicle depends on the size of its battery. In the case of CUPRA, the maximum electric range is between 50 and 60kms, depending on the model. The overall range when combined with the combustion engine is of course significantly higher.
Obviously, the range will depend on the model, driving style, the topography and road conditions. The main advantage of a plug-in hybrid is that you always have the gasoline engine as a reserve when between charges, so autonomy should not be a problem.
Charging times may vary, depending on factors such as the outside temperature, the current temperature of the battery, the charging equipment, the condition of the battery and the condition of the vehicle. Specific charging times are detailed in the technical specifications for each available plug-in hybrid model.
Using a standard charging cable, plug-in hybrid vehicles can be charged from a conventional 3-pin socket. For a faster charge, you can also use a charging station or a Wallbox. The CUPRA CHARGER is equipped with its own charging cable. For public charging stations, you need what is known as a “public AC charging cable” with a “Type 2” plug on both ends. In addition, a plug-in hybrid can also obtain part of its charge via regenerative power.
8 years or 160,000 km, whichever comes first.
An external factor essential to the performance and capacity of a battery is temperature. For this reason, especially in winter, it is necessary to "precondition" the vehicle during the charging process, that is, to warm up the battery and the interior. Or cool them in summer. This way you will not only save energy to use during driving, but you will also gain extra efficiency right from the start, with a battery at optimal temperature. Furthermore, optimized operating strategies in your vehicle minimize the effects of temperature as much as possible. In addition to the temperature, the range also depends on user-related factors: use of air conditioning, load weight and driving style etc.
The 5-door CUPRA Leon (180kW), The CUPRA Leon Sportstourer (180kW) and The CUPRA Formentor (150kW & 180kW) are all available with plug-in hybrid technology.
*The values mentioned are the result of the type approval of the selected model, in accordance with Regulation CE 2018/858. The available power (kW) and acceleration of the model depends on the state of charge of the battery and its temperature.
The accurate range for your vehicle will vary according to a number of different factors which include the route, weather conditions, vehicle load (occupants + luggage), battery age and condition, optional equipment (alloys, tyres, etc.), the use of peripheral energy consumption systems such as heating, air conditioning and heated seats, as well as your driving style. The indicated range has been calculated in compliance with the WLTP regulation which sets out standard test conditions applicable to all car manufacturers. This ensures that the values calculated in accordance with this regulation are comparable for all vehicles.
