SMART-CHARGING company Ohme is the new official charging partner for the Waylands Group.
The agreement will see the Waylands Group recommend Ohme chargers for all of its new and used electrified vehicle sales with an Ohme Home Pro charger in showrooms for customers to view.
The Waylands Group has 10 retailers across the Volvo, Kia, MG and Polestar brands as well as its innovative new Waylands E location selling pre-owned EVs and PHEVs.
John O’Hanlon from the Waylands Group said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Ohme as our preferred EV home charging supplier. Ohme’s dynamic smart charging capability, award-winning products and excellent customer service made it the obvious choice for Waylands. With EVs and PHEVs accounting for almost 30% of our new car sales.”
Ohme’s smart chargers can connect with the National Grid in real time and automatically adjust their charging for drivers to take advantage of all the times of low price charging with off-peak tariffs. 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.
David Watson, Chief Executive at Ohme, said: “Like Ohme, the Group has shown that it’s not afraid to make innovative and brave decisions with the likes of its Waylands E site launched last summer and we’re looking forward to working together to give EV drivers a seamless charging experience with reduced running costs.”
With its unique smart charging software, Ohme’s chargers can connect with the National Grid in real time and automatically adjust their charging for drivers to take advantage of all the times of low price charging with smart off-peak tariffs.
A full charge on an all-electric Kia EV6 with an Ohme charger on a smart off-peak tariff, such as Octopus Intelligent, could cost just £7.70 for a driving range of 328 miles (WLTP).
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. Ohme is the official charger provider for Motability Operations, the largest fleet operator in the UK, and has just been named as the Best Electric Charging Point Provider by Business Motoring.
