Vauxhall offers customers one year’s free EV charging credit at Tesco stores

Vauxhall is partnering with Tesco to offer customers one year’s free electric vehicle charging credit with all new EV orders.

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

Vauxhall’s partnership with Tesco comes as part of its Electric Streets of Britain initiative to increase accessible charging solutions for all drivers across the country.

Through Electric Streets of Britain, the car company has established an ‘Enablement Fund’ to help improve Local Authority understanding of residential on-street charging needs, working with charging operators, Connected Kerb and SureCharge.

Vauxhall managing director James Taylor said: “As electric vehicle sales continue to grow, access to practical charging continues to be a hot topic to ensure the UK can continue along its electrification journey, whether at home, on-street or at a required destination.

“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.”

“We’re committed to electrifying Britain and helping UK motorists to make the switch to electric. We are excited to begin working with Tesco and look forward to seeing the UK’s charging network grow, allowing even more convenient charging solutions for drivers to make their day-to-day journeys.”

Tesco head of retail partnerships Clare Gregorio added: “We’re committed to reducing carbon emissions across our business, including becoming carbon neutral across our own operations by 2035.

“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.”
