Vauxhall is aiming to encourage zero-emission motoring by extending its offer of a free home charger and 30,000 free green miles of electricity in partnership with British Gas. The offer was originally available on the Vauxhall Corsa-e but is now also available on the all-electric Mokka-e, Combo-e Life and Vivaro-e Life.
The offer gives access to an exclusive British Gas tariff, with Vauxhall crediting each customer’s account to cover the cost of charging for the equivalent of 30,000 miles over a three-year period.
The tariff is fixed price until 31 August 2024 and includes an off-peak rate with lower-priced electricity between 12am and 5am. This makes it cheaper for Vauxhall customers to charge their car overnight.
Customers with private off-street parking can also benefit from a free Home Charging Unit in the form of a Wallbox Pulsar Plus. This will installed by a qualified British Gas engineer.
The offer is valid on orders placed by 5 October 2021 and includes cars bought via Personal Contract Purchase (PCP), Conditional Sale (CS) and Personal Contract Hire (PCH).
Paul Willcox, Vauxhall managing director, said: “Our partnership with British Gas has motivated many to make the switch to an electric vehicle, and has helped ensure the all-electric Corsa-e is one of the UK’s most popular new electric cars.
“We’re very happy to announce that our offer of 30,000 free miles of electricity has now been extended to a number of other Vauxhall models, including the new Mokka-e as well as the Combo-e Life and Vivaro-e Life, making the switch to an electric vehicle even more appealing. By 2028, Vauxhall will offer a fully electric variant across its entire model range.”
In addition to this offer, all Vauxhall electric car buyers enjoy a free, six-month subscription to the bp pulse public charging network. This gives them access to more than 8,000 public charging points.
It’s good to see Vauxhall extending this offer and trying to encourage motorists to drive electric. A free home charger and cheaper electricity is always welcomed by electric car drivers.
