Our recommended Wall box provider

Volkswagen recommend Ohme as our preferred wall box supplier. Your local Volkswagen Retailer can help you order a Ohme home charger and even guide you through the process of applying for a grant. You may be also eligible for the EV chargepoint grant⁠ if you own or rent a flat (you can get either £350 or 75% off the cost to buy and install a socket, whichever amount is lower.).

The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) replaced the Electric Vehicle Homecharge scheme (EVHS) with the new EV charge point grant. The Government grants are subject to full terms and conditions and eligibility may be revised or withdrawn at any time without prior notice. This information is correct as of September 2022.

Charge on the move 

To help you top up your battery even when you’re out on the road, we’ve created We Charge. An app that makes charging simple and sustainable.

Charging with We Charge

We Charge gives you instant digital access to over 150,000 charging points across Europe. You can use the app to plan routes that follow the public charging network and receive directions to nearby stations. It will even take you to IONITY stations, rapid-charging points that are faster and greener.

Paying with We Charge

Paying with We Charge is easy. When you use a public charging station, we’ll let you know how much it’ll cost before you begin. You’ll receive an invoice monthly with your total charging costs, which we’ll take via your preferred payment method.

Lithium-ion batteries, of the type used in most electric vehicles (including Volkswagen electric vehicles) have a restricted lifespan. Battery capacity will reduce over time, with use and charging. Reduction in battery capacity will affect the performance of the vehicle, including the range achievable, and may impact resale value. New car performance figures (including battery capacity and range) may be provided for the purposes of comparison between vehicles. You should not rely on new car performance figures (including battery capacity and range), in relation to used vehicles with older batteries, as they will not reflect used vehicle performance in the real world. For further information on battery degradation/preservation please visit:
