Wiring in a new electric hob

I'm wanting to replace an old built-in ceramic hob with a new one. The old hob is wired (6mm twin & earth) directly into the 30a cooker mains behind the built-in oven. The new hob has its own heavy duty power cord which has 5 cables (L1 black, L2 brown, N1 grey, N2 blue, earth yellow/green).

Do I just use L2 & N2 plus earth or should I wire all 5 cables (ie: link/bridge L1 & L2 to live, N1 & N2 to neutral, earth to earth)?

ps - the manual that came with the hob is in german... ordered off ebay and didn't realise the seller wasn't UK based!
