Installing a home charge point

Electric Car Charging at Home

In partnership with Pod Point, installing a charge point for your EV is easier than ever.

Charging from home is  cheaper and more convenient than charging anywhere else. With a special government grant available (known as the OLEV grant) you can receive £500 off the cost of your home charger. Pod Point will apply to the Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) on your behalf so you don't have to worry.

Pod Point offer fast, safe and wi-fi enabled chargepoints for your home from £279 including standard installation, and inclusive of the OLEV grant.

Home is the perfect place to recharge; for both you and your car

Let Pod Point handle the complexities of installing your home charging point. It's as simple as speaking to one of our Volkswagen Retailers or visiting the Pod Point website to get started.

Up to £500 off with an OLEV grant

With government grants here to help, it’s never been easier or more affordable to install a charging station at home.

Low Emission Vehicles

The Office for Low Emission Vehicles has introduced an excellent scheme that makes installing an at-home charging station a lot more affordable. You could receive a £500 grant as long as you meet the following criteria:

  • You purchased a fully electric/plug-in hybrid vehicle from the 1st September 2014.
  • You have off-street parking.
  • You use an OLEV-approved installer.

If you meet all three, then you’re good to go.

Recharge while you work

Your employer could also benefit from installing a charging station if they apply to the Workplace Charging Scheme. It gives them £300 off the cost of installation and it will also encourage more employees to go electric in the future.
