Electric vehicles are increasing in popularity and it's easy to see why.
With many environmental benefits as well as great personal advantages to the driver, there has never been a better time to make the switch.
If you use your electric car to travel around 30 miles a day, you will only need to charge it around once or twice a week. Ideally, you can do this at home overnight using your optional wall box. When it comes to conserving energy, the heater and air conditioning systems can make a big difference to your vehicle’s range. The outside temperature can also sometimes affect the electric car’s range.
We’ve made charging your electric vehicle simple and accessible, allowing you to charge at home, on the go and even in a rush. To charge at home, all you need is a household socket or wall box that’s been professionally installed. There is a choice of three different power outlets and charging speeds available. All charging equipment is completely weather proof. When out and about you can simply charge it up during a short break at a charging station, in as little as 20 minutes.
There is the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) gives you £500 towards the cost of installing selected higher-powered charging wallboxes at home. Also, your employer could also benefit from installing a charging station if they apply to the Workplace Charging Scheme, it gives them £500 off the cost of installation of electric charging points.
