A new agreement between Vauxhall and British Gas will reduce charging times by up to two hours for the Vauxhall Ampera.
Dan Taylor, Director of New Ventures at British Gas said “partnering with Vauxhall on powering their electric cars is a very exciting driver of growth for British Gas as electric cars move into the mainstream. With our network of engineers, we can help make buying an electric car accessible and convenient through specialist advice and the installation of charging points.”
Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director said “our new partnership with British Gas will provide a major benefit to all Ampera customers. We can now guarantee that new owners are assured of the very best advice about safe and efficient charging completely free of charge. It also complements our existing Ampera Customer Charter by offering customers a bespoke service, allowing them to get the very best from their car.”
The British Gas Home Charging solution comprises a fast-charge kit, installation of a home charge point, three years’ warranty on parts and labour and three years’ Home Electrical Care for the whole house. The British Gas Home Charging solution will cost from £799, with discounts potentially available for people living in certain areas targeted to become the government’s ‘Plugged-in Places’.
