Volkswagen Group has extended its partnership in the UK with Ohme as its official EV home charging company which the two companies started back in 2022. The agreement will continue to see Audi, CUPRA, SEAT, Škoda, Volkswagen Passenger Cars and Commercial Vehicles recommend Ohme chargers for all of their electrified vehicles.

For most EV owners, the easiest, quickest and cheapest way to charge their vehicle is via a wallbox at home with Ohme making the installation and set-up as easy and straightforward as possible, offering low-cost charging options via integration with smart EV energy tariffs, for example through Intelligent Octopus Go. Some customers may even be eligible for a free home charger as part of a vehicle finance package, otherwise costs start at a preferential rate of £925 or £975 which includes standard installation for the most popular tethered Ohme Home Pro.

Kate Jeffreys, Electric Vehicles Business Lead for Volkswagen Group UK, commented:

“Following a robust procurement process, we were very happy to continue with Ohme as our official home EV charger for the Volkswagen Group. Ohme’s attitude towards excellent customer service together with its award-winning chargers and its dynamic technology which is able to access some of the most affordable EV tariffs on the market, made it an obvious choice. As we move from early to mass adoption of EVs we need to support our customers in making the switch and our ongoing relationship with Ohme is a key part of this.”

Ohme’s CEO, David Watson, added:

“I’m delighted that the Volkswagen Group has extended our partnership together underlining Ohme’s position as the UK’s largest smart home EV charging company. When our collaboration with the Volkswagen Group began in 2022, it already had one of the most comprehensive ranges of electric models and that has only grown. We’re looking forward to continuing to introduce its drivers to the benefits of dynamic smart charging with dramatically reduced running costs.”

Ohme’s dynamic smart chargers are able to connect with the grid in real time, automatically adjusting to optimise the cost of home charging and accessing all the times of the smartest, greenest and lowest cost energy tariffs. They also give drivers the choice of charging their car when renewable energy generation on the National Grid is at its highest to lower their CO2 impact even more.

Last year the Volkswagen Group sold over 771,000 electric vehicles, over a third more than in 2022, and in the UK, it was responsible for one in every five battery electric passenger cars sold.
