FT Pivot Point Solo 3 - Home Charging

Electric car subscription service Onto has appointed electric vehicle (EV) charging provider Pod Point as its new partner for home charging.

The partnership means Onto subscribers will be eligible to buy a 7kW Pod Point Solo 3, the latest iteration of its home charger, at a preferential rate starting from £509 for a Universal or £549 for a tethered charge point, including installation.

According to Onto the Solo 3 is three times faster than a 3-pin plug, providing up to 30 miles of range per hour, along with a range of additional features including charge scheduling, remote over-the-air updates, and auto power balancing.

Rob Jolly, co-founder and CEO at Onto, said: “We’re delighted to partner with Pod Point to improve charging accessibility as we know it’s a key priority for our customers. This is an exciting partnership for Onto as we focus on making the switch to a sustainable lifestyle simpler and navigating any anxieties around charging. EVs have a huge role to play in reducing the UK’s emissions and we’re committed to making the switch to electric as easy and accessible as possible.”

Commenting on the partnership, Erik Fairbairn, founder and CEO of Pod Point, said: “For those who are yet to venture into the world of EVs, the flexibility of Onto’s offering is really exciting. For many EV drivers, charging at home is one of the best things about driving an EV and it’s certainly one of the most simple ways to charge. We’re delighted to be partnering with Onto and bringing the benefits of charging at home to more EV drivers.”
