MG Motor UK has announced a partnership with bp pulse, bp’s electric vehicle charging business, in the UK. This aims to bring MG electric vehicle (EV) and plug-in hybrid drivers affordable and hi-tech charging solutions.
Akira Kirton, bp pulse UK CEO, said: “We are proud to be supporting MG’s electric vehicle customers in the UK for their home charging needs, as well as enabling their dealers to charge vehicles conveniently at their sites.
“Drivers of MG electric vehicles also have access to the UK’s most utilised public charging network, bp pulse, to charge on the go, including 3,000 rapid and ultra-fast charge points in the UK.”
New MG electric vehicle owners will receive a discount when they order a bp pulse homecharger. App-enabled bp pulse homecharge units will enable customers to charge reliably and conveniently at home, with the ability to precisely schedule charging times to take advantage of dynamic energy tariffs.
Customers can also receive the public sign-up offer for membership of the UK’s most utilised public charging network, bp pulse, enabling them to benefit from the lowest bp pulse tariffs plus a one-month free subscription.
As a result, drivers can access over 9,000 public charging points when on the road in the UK, including 3,000 rapid and ultra-fast charge points. This is good news for MG electric car drivers and will hopefully encourage more to make the transition to zero emissions motoring.
MG’s UK dealership network will be closely supported by bp pulse with discounted rates and finance solutions available to fully-electrify their forecourts with bp pulse charging technology, as well as free site surveys and in-depth training so that MG retailers can pass on expert charging know-how to owners.
Guy Pigounakis, MG Motor UK commercial director, said: “We’re dedicated to offering MG customers excellent value wherever and whenever we can, especially when it comes to purchasing and owning an EV.
“This agreement with bp pulse enables us to offer our customers a wide range of benefits whether they’re at home, on the road or visiting their MG dealer.
“There is also the significant advantage of teaming up with bp pulse who bring immense expertise and resources when it comes to effective, practical and cost-effective vehicle charging.”
Back in August, MG Motor UK announced the launch of its MG4 EV, a hatchback/small crossover-style car. This is MG Motors’ most affordable electric vehicle to date with prices starting from £25,995. The company, which has seen record sales of its electric vehicles, also announced an updated version of its MG5 EV electric car in June.
