Jaguar announced on their website that drivers of Jaguar or Land Rover plug-in electric hybrid and fully electric vehicles will now benefit from the launch of Jaguar Charging and Land Rover Charging, as per the Electric Cars Report.
According to the announcement, it brings easy access to a network of over 300,000 charging points across 26 countries and 700 separate charging point providers including Osprey, lonity, and char.gy as part of a growing network.
New or existing owners will receive a welcome pack to the service, including a Jaguar or Land Rover charging key which will simply need to be tapped at any of the network’s points to initiate the charge. In addition, access can also be granted through the Jaguar Charging or Land Rover Charging app.
Furthermore, the new charging services aim to simplify the process especially for customers who find charging away from home daunting. With one charging key, one app, a curated selection of charging points across the UK and Europe, and the payment method available for the service is just as simple.
The Pay-As-You-Go package has no monthly fee, and charging sessions cost the current variable rate at each charger. The Gold Tariff – priced at £4.26 per month including VAT – provides fixed prices for charging, differing depending on the speed of the charger. The Platinum Tariff, priced at £8.50 per month including VAT, reduces the fixed rates, making it suitable for drivers that are regularly charging away from home.
With the flexibility, simplicity, and transparency the new Jaguar Charging and Land Rover charging offers, powered by Plugsurfing, helps keep driving hassle-free.
Moreover, as part of the Reimagine strategy, Jaguar will be reimagined as an all-electric luxury brand by 2025, whereas Land Rover nameplates will be available in pure electric form by the end of the decade.
“This is a significant step forward for us and our customers as we move closer to our all-electric future. Creating simplicity and convenience throughout the EV ownership experience is a key objective and, until now, we have been impacted by a compromised public charging infrastructure. With our new Jaguar Charging and Land Rover Charging services, we can serve our fleet and business customers with valuable management tools, and enhance the charging process by making it more simple and convenient for drivers throughout the UK and across Europe.” Rawdon Glover, Jaguar Land Rover UK MD, said.
The transformation to all-electric at Jaguar is already on its track, with the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE SUV accompanied by the Jaguar E-PACE and the Jaguar F-PACE plug-in electric hybrids.
On the other hand, Land Rover is embracing the strategy as well. With a battery-electric vehicle (BEV) Range Rover set to premiere in 2024. Plug-in electric hybrid versions of the Range Rover Velar, Range Rover Evoque, Land Rover Discovery Sport, and Land Rover Defender are also available to order.
