Volvo EV drivers to get NewMotion home charge points at special rates
Volvo Car UK has appointed NewMotion as its electric vehicle charge point partner, supporting drivers with home charging solutions.
The carmaker offers a growing range of battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids and will become a fully electric car company by 2030.
Furthering this, the new deal with NewMotion will provide customers with home charge points at preferential rates. This includes BEV and PHEV buyers using Volvo’s Selekt approved used programme.
NewMotion’s smart, future-proof solution will accommodate larger battery sizes of future EVs, with faster charging speeds depending on the grid connection of the home.
Drivers can have the NewMotion chargers installed anywhere across the UK, including the Channel isles, Isle of Man and the Scottish Islands. And the installation process includes a virtual survey that will maximise the potential of the home charge point and check if customers are eligible for an Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) grant.
For those who are eligible, NewMotion also provides support with the grant application process.
The UK deal builds on NewMotion’s existing work with Volvo overseas – it partnered with the brand in Germany in 2020. NewMotion’s list of corporate partners includes Jaguar Land Rover, Mazda and Daimler.
Volvo Car UK managing director Kristian Elvefors said: “We chose to partner with NewMotion due to its innovative development of smart charging solutions, as well as the scale in which it operates in the UK. We were looking for a strong partner in the UK to support our drivers with simple, safe and reliable home charging solutions – NewMotion is the perfect fit.”
Alan McCleave, regional manager UK and Nordics at NewMotion, also commented: “We know just how important partnering with key players across the industry is in improving availability and accessibility of public and private charging infrastructure. To now be partnering with Volvo in the market is really exciting and is another key step in supporting Volvo Car UK and also the UK in its goal to ban new sales of petrol and diesel cars in the UK by 2030.”
