Volkswagen Group UK and Ohme extend partnership and joint commitment to equitable home EV charging

Volkswagen Group UK has extended its partnership with Ohme, reaffirming the latter’s role as the official home electric vehicle (EV) charging provider. The collaboration, which began in 2022, will continue to see Ohme chargers recommended for all electrified vehicle sales across Volkswagen Group’s six brands in the UK—Audi, CUPRA, SEAT, Škoda, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

David Watson, Ohme CEO, commented:

“I’m delighted that the Volkswagen Group has extended our partnership together underlining Ohme’s position as the UK’s largest smart home EV charging company,” said “When our collaboration with the Volkswagen Group began in 2022, it already had one of the most comprehensive ranges of electric models and that has only grown. We look forward to continuing to introduce its drivers to the benefits of dynamic smart charging with dramatically reduced running costs.”

Kate Jeffreys, Electric Vehicles Business Lead for Volkswagen Group UK, added:

“Following a robust procurement process, we were very happy to continue with Ohme as our official home EV charger for the Volkswagen Group. 

Ohme’s attitude towards excellent customer service together with its award-winning chargers and its dynamic technology which is able to access some of the most affordable EV tariffs on the market, made it an obvious choice. As we move from early to mass adoption of EVs we need to support our customers in making the switch and our ongoing relationship with Ohme is a key part of this.”

In terms of cost-effectiveness, smart charging with Ohme’s Intelligent Octopus Go tariff could potentially save an average UK driver covering 6800 miles annually a significant amount, costing as little as £127.50 per year. However, with the introduction of the new Standard Variable Tariff at 24.5p/kWh, the same mileage could cost £417 annually, highlighting the financial implications for consumers.

Ohme’s technology enables drivers to prioritise charging during periods of peak renewable energy generation, aligning with both Volkswagen Group’s sustainability goals and the UK’s broader environmental agenda.

Ohme’s continued collaboration with Volkswagen Group signifies a mutual commitment to advancing emobility while addressing environmental concerns. The industry is continuously calling for increased support. Open letters and calls for businesses, local authorities, and governments to collaborate over decarbonisation have been flooding the sector. So, the continuation of these positive partnerships is a worthwhile celebration.
