OVO has teamed up with Volkswagen Group UK to "support customers’ switch to electric vehicles". VW and OVO customers will benefit from OVO’s market leading Charge Anytime add-on, providing discounted rate at any time of day or night.

OVO’s intelligent grid technology, powered by Kaluza, unlocks a charging rate nearly four times cheaper than the national average and customers have already saved over £10 million by smart charging with Charge Anytime.

Customers purchasing vehicles from 1 July 2024 from any of the Volkswagen Group brands – Audi, CUPRA, SEAT, Škoda, Volkswagen Passenger Cars and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles – can take advantage of OVO’s market leading ‘Charge Anytime’ add-on.

That is well up to 10,000 free miles, anniversary bonuses and additional free EV miles through OVO Beyond. Under the partnership with OVO, Volkswagen Group customers can charge their vehicle for just 7p/kWh at home at any time of the day or night. The Charge Anytime add-on powered by Kaluza’s smart software, has enabled customers to save over £10 million since its launch in 2022.

The add-on works by automatically optimising cars to charge when carbon emissions and prices are lower. EV drivers can access the discounted charging rate at any time of day or night, and drive for just £190 per year, making it one of the UKs most competitive charging rates.

Electric Vehicle Lead for Volkswagen Group UK, Kate Jeffreys, said: “Following a thorough tender process, we were delighted to join forces with OVO to offer Volkswagen Group customers a solution for clean, affordable and simple energy. On top of our Ohme partnership for home charging, we believe the agreement with OVO breaks down more barriers for customers who are looking to make the switch to an electric vehicle. Buying, owning and driving an electric vehicle is simple and easy – and fun! We hope this latest addition to our holistic offering will be another attractive piece of the jigsaw for consumers.”

OVO’s Chief Commercial Officer, Mat Moakes said: ‘’OVO is committed to helping customers transition to an electric vehicle. Together with Volkswagen Group we are rewarding customers for making the switch to an EV. We look forward to extending our market leading Charge Anytime to more customers than ever before and helping consumers on their EV journey, all while cutting costs and carbon.”
