Vauxhall is partnering with leading supermarket Tesco to provide new EV customers with one year’s free charging credit at stores across the country.

While the Pod Point charge points are accessible for all EV drivers, new Vauxhall retail customers who purchase an electric Vauxhall car or van direct from a Vauxhall retailer will be able to benefit from one year’s worth of free charging credit when visiting Tesco.

This free charging credit is based on one year’s average mileage in a private vehicle – 5,900 miles according to Department for Transport figures – and administered as a fixed credit value in the Pod Point app.

Tesco holds 2,700 charging bays across 619 Tesco stores nationwide making it the country’s largest supermarket charging network, with a mix of 7kW, 22kW, 50kW and 75kW charging stations.

As part of the partnership all 2,700 charge bays across Tesco stores will be updated with a Vauxhall and Tesco co-branded livery.

Vauxhall’s partnership with Tesco comes as part of its Electric Streets of Britain initiative.

James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said, “In partnership with Tesco, Vauxhall is continuing to support electric vehicle drivers across the country, offering free charging for any new Vauxhall customer visiting a Tesco store.”

Clare Gregorio, Head of Retail partnerships, Tesco, said, “We want to encourage our customers to make sustainable choices too, such as moving to electric vehicles.

“That’s why we’re delighted to partner with Vauxhall in providing the UK’s largest supermarket EV charging network, making it easy and convenient for our customers to top up their electric cars while they shop with us.”
