Where to recharge your electric vehicle in BORDEAUX?

As a city committed to the ecological transition, Bordeaux has developed a network of charging stations for electric vehicles. Whether you’re a regular electric driver or you’re taking advantage of your stay to try out this mobility solution, here are a few options for recharging your vehicle in Bordeaux during the Rugby World Cup.

Municipal charging stations

Bordeaux has installed charging stations throughout the city, notably in the main parking lots and public squares. These stations generally offer fast charging and are compatible with most models of electric vehicle.

Shopping center recharging stations

Many shopping centers in Bordeaux, such as the Meriadeck shopping center or the Bordeaux Lac shopping center, offer free recharging stations for customers. This is a great option for recharging your vehicle while shopping.

Private charging stations

There are also several private charging station networks in Bordeaux, such as Ionity, Tesla Supercharger, or Chargemap. They generally offer ultra-fast recharging, but may require registration or a specific application to use.

Charging at your accommodation

More and more hotels and apartments in Bordeaux offer charging points for their guests’ electric vehicles. If you’re staying in this type of accommodation, check in advance whether this option is available.

Don’t forget that recharging an electric vehicle takes longer than refueling a conventional vehicle, so allow plenty of time for recharging. It’s also a good idea to check your vehicle’s compatibility with the type of charging station you intend to use.


In conclusion, even if you’re traveling by electric vehicle, Bordeaux has plenty of options to make your life easier during your Rugby World Cup stay.
