The number of electric vehicles on the road in Lyon is constantly increasing, and with them, the need for charging stations. Whether you’re a resident or a visitor, here’s what you need to know about recharging your electric vehicle in Lyon.

Public charging stations

Lyon has a growing network of public charging stations managed by the city and by private operators. These stations offer different types of recharging points, from standard recharging (3-8 hours) to fast recharging (20-30 minutes).

Public charging stations can be found in a variety of locations, including public parking lots, supermarkets, petrol stations and sometimes even on the sidewalk. Some are free, while others charge a fee that varies according to the service provider and the type of recharge.

Mobile Applications

To locate the nearest charging stations, several mobile applications are available, such as ChargeMap or Plugsurfing. They provide not only the location of stations, but also information on their availability in real time, the type of plugs available and rates.

Plan your Reload

It’s always a good idea to plan your charging in advance, especially if you’re planning long journeys. Make sure you know your vehicle’s range, and locate the charging stations on your route.

Filling stations for gasoline-powered cars

For non-electric vehicles, Lyon has a large number of service stations offering gasoline and diesel. They are spread throughout the city and are generally open 24 hours a day. Applications such as Waze or Google Maps can help you find the nearest service station.


In short, recharging your electric vehicle in Lyon has become increasingly easy thanks to the growing number of recharging stations. However, careful planning is still recommended to ensure a stress-free journey.
