Stellantis UK has extended its partnership with Octopus Energy to give drivers of Citroën, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Jeep and Peugeot cars and vans across the UK access to a range of benefits.
Already available to Vauxhall customers, the partnership provides drivers of Stellantis brands with access to more than 330,000 public charge points across the UK and Europe, through one single payment card and app, as well as access to new smart energy tariffs.
Public charging networks available as part of the deal include Ionity, Shell Recharge, Osprey, Fastned and Ubitricity via a single account.
The partnership also allows customers to opt for the installation of an Ohme wallbox charger for their homes that is linked to the flexible charging tariff, Intelligent Octopus.
This Ohme wallbox charger can be connected through a smartphone app allowing customers to schedule vehicle charging to suit their needs.
The flexible Intelligent Octopus tariff charges the vehicle using renewable energy when it is at its cheapest – offering customers savings compared to a standard variable rate and helping to balance demand on the grid.
Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Stellantis UK, said, “Our partnership with Octopus Energy allows us to offer electric vehicle customers greater support and services to enjoy the freedom of driving an EV at home and on the road.
“We’re pleased to be continuing to provide drivers with access to charging in an affordable, efficient, and environmentally beneficial way with added ease.”
Rebecca Dibb-Simkin, Chief Product Officer at Octopus Energy, said, “Transport still accounts for a massive chunk of global emissions, so switching away from petrol and diesel cars will be crucial for reaching net zero.
“Going electric is a win-win-win: cleaning up the air we breathe, decarbonising our roads and putting money back in people’s pockets.”
