Charging

Topping up the battery at home is the most convenient and inexpensive way to charge an electric car.

Topping up the battery at home is the most convenient and inexpensive way to charge an electric car.

Even though it’s possible to plug an electric car into a regular mains socket, this should only be done temporarily. The high current demand of an EV calls for the use of a dedicated charging station to avoid overly long charging times and going against safety regulations. 

With an intelligent home charging solution, you can benefit from more control to get the most from your EV, as well as being able to integrate into some of the smartest EV energy tariffs like Intelligent Octopus, so you can charge at the cheapest and greenest times available.

The Polestar importer in New Zealand, Giltrap Group, has partnered with Evenex to offer their customers a special price on their home chargers.

An EV home charger can be easily mounted on an existing wall and connected to the wiring that’s already there. The other option is to mount it on a post, allowing for more freedom of placement. Expect slightly higher installation costs for the latter, as it will usually require a new underground mains connection.
