iOS version of the app here, and Android version here

Dear current and future CUPRA owners!

We are happy to announce that you can now automatically smart charge your Born with Gridio using the cheapest (and usually cleanest) electricity. You can download the iOS version of the app here, and Android version here and try it out yourself.

Our first CUPRA Born users have been smart charging with us for the past weeks and have been happy with the product and savings. So we are making it available for everyone.

Over the past year, our smart chargers have been able to save on average 30% off the electricity price of charging(excluding network fees and taxes), by allowing Gridio to schedule charging to the cheapest period of the day. With electricity markets being increasingly volatile, it certainly pays to wait for the right moment to charge!

How does it work?

First of all — you do not need to install any new devices — all you need is your lovely CUPRA Born and our app, which you can download here (iOS) and here (Android).

After downloading the app, you connect your CUPRA to Gridio using Cupra’s secure login page in the app; set your smart charging time window — and you’re all set up! Now, when you plug in at home and electricity prices are high, we will stop the charging session within a few minutes, and start it when electricity prices are their lowest ahead of your departure time — while ensuring your battery is charged up by your desired time.

You can keep track of your smart charging performance as well as electricity prices through our app!

Note: If you need immediate charging any time in the time window, then you can simply pause our service from the bottom of the app. At fast chargers, we automatically disable Gridio for you!

We look forward to welcoming you or your friends and family to smart charge with CUPRAs with us — as the more smart chargers, the better for the grid and the planet.

Happy smart charging!

Konrad from Gridio
