Mercedes-Benz plug-in vehicle customers with off-street parking can benefit from the convenience and speed of charging at home by installing an Ohme charger.
Ohme specialise in providing electric vehicle charging solutions, in particular smart, affordable and easy-to-use home chargers. Ohme’s technology uses your tariff information to charge your vehicle when the price is low to maximise your savings.
Having a proper charging setup at home is essential for convenient and hassle-free EV charging. Whilst most new cars come with a charging cable, it's worth noting that not all of them include a three-pin charging cable, which is needed for home charging.
It is estimated that home charging accounts for approximately 75% of all electric vehicle charging, with 20% taking place at public charging points, and the remaining 5% occurring at workplaces and other locations.
The majority of an EV's charging occurs when it's parked, which is around 95% of the time, so make sure you have the space and convenience to facilitate home charging.
Most Battery Electric Vehicles now have real ranges of more than 200 miles, which is sufficient for most commuters who travel less than 30 miles to work. However, it is important to ensure that your EV's range covers your daily commute. Public charging stations are available throughout the UK. You can use Zapmap.com to locate charging stations near your location. This can help you plan your enroute charging for trips that exceed your EV's range.
Using a domestic home charger is the perfect way to complement your new electrified vehicle. Charge the battery within a few hours at home.
Please request a call from your local Sandown Retailer for more information.
Convenience simplified. Start your day with a full charge and enjoy all the benefits an Ohme charger brings, including:
Charging a Mercedes-Benz EQA with a 66kWh battery from 0 to 80% charge with an Ohme smart charger on a smart off-peak tariff, such as Octopus Intelligent^, could cost just £3.96. Ohme also offers drivers the option to charge their car when renewable energy generation on the national grid is at its highest, further lowering their CO2 impact.
There are some great perks for choosing the Ohme home charger:
The most convenient way to refuel your EV is with a home charger. Because energy is usually cheaper at night, you’ll enjoy low running costs, and start every day with a full charge.
With Ohme Charge, you’ll have 7.5kWh fast charging at source with fixed price installation and a FREE 5m tethered cable.
Did you know there’s more places to charge an EV than fuel a conventional petrol or diesel car? Public chargers are a great option for longer journeys, visiting friends, family or commuting to work. With a compatible EV, rapid charging is available at 100kW+, this will charge a typical EV to 80% from empty in 20-30 minutes.
