Supermarket Sainsbury’s has announced that EV drivers using its ultra-rapid charging service Smart Charge will now be able to collect Nectar points.

Under the scheme, all Smart Charge customers with active Nectar accounts will be able to charge their EV and collect points, collecting one Nectar point for every pound spent.

Nectar is the UK’s largest multi partner loyalty scheme offering users the ability to spend points at brands including Sainsbury’s, Argos and British Airways.

Smart Charge is an ultra-rapid EV charging network with more than 400 charging bays and counting.

The news coincides with the launch of the retailer’s 50th Smart Charge EV charging location, with 12 new bays now available at the Sainsbury’s London Enfield Superstore, just off the A10.

Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s Director of Property, Procurement & EV Ventures, said, “Rolling out across June, customers using any of our 400 Smart Charge bays across the country will now be able to benefit from collecting Nectar points to spend on their favourite brands.

“With bays in more locations than ever before, and Sainsbury’s stores conveniently placed far and wide, it has never been easier for EV drivers across the UK to access ultra-rapid facilities, and now they can reap the benefit of Nectar points too.

“Not to forget the added advantage of popping into a Sainsbury’s store to pick up some groceries while waiting for their vehicle charge to complete.

“Our Enfield store is a fantastic location, in a popular residential area of North London and near main roads, making it an ideal spot for our 50th location.”
