New Peugeot owners to get free public charging for 6 months
17th Feb 2020 Danny Morgan
Peugeot is offering new car buyers a free six-month subscription to Polar Plus, the UK’s largest public charging network.
The free six-month Polar Plus subscription means access to many of the network’s public charging points is free, while the remaining chargeable units start from 12p per kWh.
Polar Plus’ subscription service gives users access to more than 7,000 charging points across the UK, while the firm is currently rolling out its 150kW rapid chargers which can charge the Peugeot e-208 from 0-80% in about 30 minutes.
Following the end of the subscription, users will have the option to continue with a £7.85 per month service or use Polar Plus charge points on a pay-as-you-go service via Polar Instant.
David Peel, Managing Director of PEUGEOT UK, said: “With more than 7,000 public charging points across the UK, PEUGEOT’s collaboration with Polar Plus is a great way to encourage drivers to make the switch to electric vehicles. One of the main hesitations around EVs is access to charging points, and drivers who subscribe to Polar Plus when buying a new fully-electric or plug-in HYBRID PEUGEOT model will find it far easier to access the energy they need when travelling throughout the UK.”
