British Gas to provide charging points for Renault
As part of the deal, buyers will be offered a £995 home charging point, installed by a British Gas engineer, which cuts recharge times by a third. The supplier has also launched an electricity tariff designed for electric car owners, claimed to save up to £1,200 per year compared to a petrol car.
British Gas has already teamed up with Renault’s Alliance partner, Nissan, and offers a similar service for buyers of the Nissan LEAF. According to research by Market Gravity, it gives British Gas a potential 59% of the home charging point market, based on projected EV sales.
Renault’s first electric vehicle, the Kangoo Van Z.E., goes on sale later this year.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
