Renault partners with Chargemaster for ZOE home chargers
The offer will now see Chargemaster install a 7kW (30A) wall-box charger fully installed at customers’ homes for free. The box allows a full charge, from zero to 100% full, in three to four hours. This provides sufficient range for a ZOE to travel up to 149 miles on the official NEDC cycle – comfortably more than most electric vehicle owners’ daily mileage.
The wall-box is built in Britain by Chargemaster and is weatherproof so can be installed indoors or outside, with a choice of tethered or socketed cables that can be neatly coiled when not in use. The charger is protected by key controlled access and is covered by a four-year warranty – matching the vehicle manufacturer cover.
Once installed, owners are eligible to apply for a POLAR Network Card which grants access to UK’s largest public charging infrastructure with over 3,000 charging points.
The wall-box offer is available to retail customers who have access to off-street parking and an electricity supply. Earlier this year, Chargemaster Plc launched a workplace charging point scheme for the Nissan LEAF or Renault ZOE, offering low-cost installation for businesses.
Ben Fletcher, electric vehicle product manager, Renault UK commented: “We’re delighted to be continuing our unique wall-box included offer, which allows us to ensure ZOE customers have the simplest and most convenient electric vehicle ownership experience. Chargemaster offer market leading technology and is dedicated to delivering great customer service so they’re the perfect partner to help us deliver the offer.”
