Plug it Safe: How Does the Emergency Plug® Work?

Whoever arrives first at the accident scene will place the Emergency-plug in the charging socket of the Electric Vehicle. The Emergency Plug will communicate with the car’s software by making the car think it is being charged. As a result of this, it will not be possible to operate the car or for it to drive off. Every Electric Car and Hybrid has a mandatory built-in safety feature that will prevent the car from being operated once the car is being charged. All manufacturers must follow this protocol and implement this feature to prevent serious damage to charging stations and high-voltage grids. The Emergency Plug has a plug on each side (type 1 & type 2). Using the Emergency Plug, all Electric Cars and Hybrids worldwide can be safely disabled. The Emergency Plug is user-friendly and does not require any special training.
