This summer I’m planning to go on a trip to a fantasy fair in the Netherlands. My idea is, I make an adventure out of it and travel all the way and back with my Twizy.
The trip will take multiple days (instead of 3 hours by ICE car), which gives me time for city-tripping while my Twizy recharges every 50 km.
The Netherlands is a top country for driving electric, since the tiny country has 5800 public charging points (est. end 2014).
I contacted The New Motion, a Dutch charging point company that partners with other charging point companies to create a network of compatible charging points. They work with RFID-cards for accessing charging points.
I asked some questions about my trip, and they told me that all of their public charging points are Mennekes, something the Twizy doesn’t have.
Being from Belgium and not the UK, that gives me a slight advantage in distance, so that’s a positive.
Are there any Schuko (Type F)-to-Mennekes or French (Type E)-to-Mennekes converters available on the market today for the Twizy? I would research myself, but I know far too little from electricity to make an informed decision.
If not, I need to look for another solution.
Thank you for reading.
