“The ID. Buzz is one of the most exciting new EVs on the market and together with our Home Pro this is a great package for a new car buyer,” says Ohme’s CEO David Watson.
ID. Buzz and Home Pro smart charger’s agreement
“Here at Ohme, we’re delighted to be extending our relationship with Volkswagen with this bundled agreement with the ID. Buzz and our Home Pro smart charger.”
Ohme’s Home Pro smart charger can connect in real-time with the national grid and adjust its charging automatically for drivers to take advantage of all the times of low-cost charging with smart off-peak tariffs.
The ID. Buzz comes with a 77kWh battery and more than 250 miles (402 km) of the WLPT range. Charging from zero to 100% with an Ohme Home Pro with a smart off-peak tariff from Octopus could cost only £7.70 ($9.16) compared to over £26 (30.94) on the Standard Variable Tariff.
“We chose Ohme as our charging partner for Volkswagen and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles because of its award-winning Home Pro product and excellent attitude towards customer service,” Alice Axtell from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles said.
“This latest bundled package with the ID. Buzz further underlines that relationship with a great offer for customers buying this highly sought-after electric vehicle.”
In addition, Ohme offers drivers the option to charge their vehicles when renewable energy generation on the National Grid is at its peak, further reducing their CO2 impact.
