Electric vehicles have special features,
but operate in a similar manner to con-

The main difference in electric vehicles
is the exclusive use of electric energy
instead of fuel, as used in convention
vehicles.
We therefore recommend that you read
these instructions describing your elec-

ELECTRIC VEHICLE: important recommendations
Please read these instructions carefully. Failure to follow these instructions may lead to a risk of fire, serious injury
or electric shock which may present a risk to life.
In the event of an accident or impact
In the event of an accident or an impact to the underside of the vehicle (e.g.: striking a post, raised kerb or other street furni-
ture), this may damage the electric circuit or the traction battery.
Have the vehicle checked by an authorised dealer.
Never touch the “400 volt” components or orange cables which are exposed and visible inside or outside the vehicle.
In the event of serious damage to the traction battery, leaks may occur:
- never touch the liquids (fluids, etc.) coming from the traction battery;
- in the event of contact with the body, wash the affected area with plenty of water and consult a doctor as soon as possible.
In the event of an impact, even slight, against the charging flap and/or valve, have them checked by an authorised dealer as
soon as possible.
In the event of fire
In the event of fire, make everyone evacuate the vehicle immediately and contact the emergency services, informing them that
this is an electric vehicle.
Only use extinguishing agents ABC or BC that are permitted for use with electrical fires. Do not use water or other extinguish-
ing agents.
In the event of damage to the electrical circuit, please call an authorised dealer.
All towing operations
➥ 5.22.
Washing the vehicle
Never wash the engine compartment, the charging connection or the traction battery with a high-pressure jet.
This risks damaging the electric circuit.
Never wash the vehicle while it is charging.

Important recommendations for charging your vehicle
Please read these instructions carefully. Failure to follow these instructions may lead to a risk of fire, serious injury
or electric shocks which could result in death.
Charging
Do not do anything to the vehicle during charging (washing, working in the engine compartment, etc.).
In the event of the presence of water, signs of corrosion or foreign bodies in the charging cord connector or in the vehicle charg-
ing socket, do not charge the vehicle. Fire hazard.
Do not attempt to touch the cord contacts, the domestic socket or the vehicle charging socket, or introduce objects into them.
Never plug the charging cord into an adapter, multiple socket or extension lead.
The use of generators is prohibited.
Do not remove or change the vehicle charging socket or the charging cord. Fire hazard.
Do not modify or perform any action on the installation during charging.
In the event of an impact, even slight, against the charging socket or valve, have them checked by an authorised dealer as
soon as possible.
Take care of the cord: do not tread on it, immerse it in water or pull on it or let anything knock against it.
Check regularly that the charging lead is in good condition.
In the event of damage to the charging lead (corrosion, browning, cuts, etc.), to the unit or to the vehicle's electrical charging
socket, do not use them. Please see an authorised dealer to replace them.
In the event of non-activation of the charging flap locking mechanism and/or unlocking of the vehicle's electric charging socket,
please contact an approved dealer.

ELECTRIC VEHICLE: charging (4/12)
Important recommendations for charging your vehicle
Please read these instructions carefully. Failure to follow these instructions may lead to a risk of fire, serious injury
or electric shocks which could result in death.
Choice of charging cord
The standard charging cords supplied with the vehicle have been designed specifically for this vehicle. It is designed to protect
you against the risks of electric shock that can lead to death or fire.
Do not use with the charging leads of previous vehicles as they are not adapted.
For safety reasons, the use of a charging cord not recommended by the manufacturer is strictly forbidden. Failure to follow
this instruction can lead to risks of fire or electric shock that can prove fatal. For information on a charging cord suited to your
vehicle, please consult an authorised dealer.
Using the charging lead B
Please read the instructions that come with the charging lead carefully to learn about the precautions you must take when
using the product and the technical specifications required for fitting the socket.
Installation
Power supply systems
Only use charging terminals which conform to the IEC 61851-1 standard and connecting points protected by:
- a type A 30 mA residual differential current system specific to the socket used;
- an overcurrent protection device;
- protection against overvoltage relating to lightning in exposed areas (IEC 62305-4).
Wall socket
Have a special wall socket installed by a qualified professional.
In the case of domestic charging
Have a qualified professional check that each socket to which you will connect the charging cord complies with the standards
and regulations in force in your country and that it complies with the specifications described previously in the information on
“Power supply systems”.
