Reserving an electric car #

4. Click on Planning assistant / Planning (Mac)

8. Select time period (NB: Remember that you have to drive to and from your destination).
9. Click on Send. You will receive a reservation confirmation. The reservation should also be visible in your calendar.
All cars are equipped with GPS #
The reason for this is that all use of government cars has to be documented (see the Government Personnel Manual, subsection 10.21.1. (in Norwegian)). To ensure that this is correctly executed, the Technical Division has installed electronic log-books in all vehicles.
The system uses GPS to register the vehicle's position. We do not register who the driver is, only the car's movements. We have a "passive" map system, which allows us to see where the vehicle is at any given time, but we cannot follow the vehicle's movements on the map.
The vehicle's positions are registered automatically, and the registration meets all applicable requirements. Registered data is stored for 10 years.
Government electrical cars must not be used for private purposes, as this is not covered by the insurance. Employees will be held personally responsible for accidents occurring while using NTNU cars for private purposes.
How to use the electric cars #
The cars have only 4 seats.
Charger cable #
You have to unlock the car to release the charger cable. Press the "unlock" button on the remote control.
Bring the charger cable in the car when you leave the parking lot. This prevents the charger cable from being stolen, and allows you to charge the car at your destination. An extra charger cable is located in the boot.
Starting the car #
Put the key in the ignition (the key appears when you press the blank button on the remote). Depress the brake pedal and "start" the car for approx. 3 seconds. The brake pedal will sink slightly. When turning on the ignition, a few warning and indicator lights will appear during the function check. These will disappear after a few seconds.
Driving the car #
With the brake pedal depressed, shift the shift lever to D. Release the brake pedal and depress the accelerator pedal carefully, and you are on your way. This car has an automatic transmission, so you do not have to change gears.
Parking the car #
Back the car (!) into its parking space (unless it is possible to continue forward after parking).
Depress the brake pedal – pull the handbrake – shift the shift lever to "P". Remove the key and lock the car when you leave it.
This car is equipped with an electronic log-book. All movements are electronically registered via the GPS control unit.
Always fill out the notice of claim if any damage to the car occurs. The notice of claim form is located in the glove compartment.
