The 'Plug & Charge' function allows the vehicle and the charging station to communicate directly via the charging cable. Thus, charging starts as soon as the charging cable is plugged in and no further authentication is required from the customer. Mercedes says that this makes vehicle charging as simple as charging one's smartphone.

The Mercedes me Charge customers also continue to get benefit from the integrated payment function that supports automatic payment. Once a customer chooses their preferred payment method, the amount is automatically debited during charging from next time, even abroad. All the individual charging fees are listed in the person's monthly invoice.
