SMART charging company Ohme is the new official home charging partner for Polestar in the UK.
The agreement will see Polestar recommend Ohme chargers for all its sales supporting drivers who need an EV charging solution with an Ohme Home Pro charger in its spaces locations for customers to view.
Ohme Chief Executive David Watson said: “Our new collaboration with Polestar underlines Ohme’s position as one of the UK’s fastest growing dynamic smart charging companies. Polestar has revolutionised the introduction of EVs to the UK and with Ohme’s technology giving drivers the control to get more from their EVs, Ohme and Polestar are a natural partnership. Smart charging with Ohme could cost a Polestar driver just over £100 for an entire year of motoring.”
For a limited time, Polestar 2 buyers will also benefit from a package deal that sees a complimentary Ohme charger with standard installation included in the list price of the car. Ohme has just been named as Fast Track Company of the Year in the 2023 UK Green Business Awards as well as Best Electric Charging Point Provider by Business Motoring. In September, Ohme was also named as Polestar’s official charging partner in Ireland.
Jonathan Goodman, Head of Polestar UK said: “Polestar is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and Ohme’s ability to charge when the National Grid has the highest levels of renewable energy while providing customers with a significant cost saving on charging makes this an ideal collaboration. Ohme’s professionalism and excellent approach towards customer service also align with Polestar’s core values and culture.”
Ohme’s smart chargers can connect with the National Grid in real time with their unique software able to automatically adjust their charging for drivers to take advantage of all the times of low price charging with smart off-peak tariffs.
Running a Polestar 2 Long Range Single Motor with its 82kWh battery (WLTP range: 406mls) and an Ohme smart charger on Intelligent Octopus Go*, could cost £103.02 for a year for an average UK driver doing 6800 miles. By comparison, charging on the Standard Variable Tariff would cost £384.58 for the same distance and an equivalent petrol car would be more than £1200.
