Vauxhall and Tesco team up for free EV charging

Vauxhall and Tesco team up for free EV charging

Vauxhall has announced a partnership with Tesco to offer one year's free electric vehicle (EV) charging credit to new EV customers.

Powered by Pod Point, Tesco has the largest supermarket charging network in the UK, with 2,700 charging bays across 619 stores.

The initiative aims to address the lack of on-street charging provision in the UK through Vauxhall's Electric Streets of Britain programme.

This includes an 'Enablement Fund' to improve local authority understanding of residential on-street charging needs.

Tesco is committed to reducing carbon emissions and becoming carbon-neutral by 2035.

Vauxhall had previously unveiled plans to offer fully electric versions of all car and van models by the end of the year.

Clare Gregorio, Head of Retail partnerships, Tesco, said: "We want to encourage our customers to make sustainable choices too, such as moving to EVs."

James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: "As EV sales continue to grow, access to practical charging continues to be a hot topic to ensure the UK can continue along its electrification journey, whether at home, on-street or at a required destination."
