Home charging

There’s no place like home

Home charging gives you the freedom to connect and charge your car whenever you like.

Home charging gives you the freedom to connect and charge your car whenever you like.

It enables you to cover your daily driving needs as well as preparing you for any unforeseen or last-minute journeys by simply plugging in overnight and topping up during the day. When your car is plugged in, you can also pre-climatise your vehicle with energy directly from the grid. You can either choose to charge your electric car at home through installing a home charging point and therefore benefiting from faster charging speeds and built-in safety features or you can charge from a normal AC socket - please check with a licenced electrician first. If choosing to install a dedicated home charger, you can benefit from the government OLEV grant.
