- All the other manufacturers in the group are offering discounts to there cars.
Supposedly Ionity are expecting to install at 40 sites in the UK this year!!Considering that they only have installations at three locations in the UK, I personally think that anybody paying the monthly subscription must be bonkers (unless they do numerous trips across Europe).
There are a few Polar 7kW posts around Morecambe area now, so if you're parking in town, you can get a reasonable charge over a few hours there.Well one of our key destinations annually is Morecambe (near Lancaster) - the only 50kw chargers we can use will be pretty much Polar at the new M6 junction site, so we'll be needing a card or to pay as we go there for that. Otherwise having checked zap-map we have some long waits for charging as part of the trip (it's near 350 miles form home to that site, so we already have to stop-en-route, and theres no option to even granny charge at the final destination). But as we usually visit the area 2-3 times a year, we'll need a "reliable" 50kw charge (or more) - to cover our usage in the area. My work also uses Polar for their "free" chargers - so I'll kinda need a card regardless, as although I can get to/from work on a charge, not paying for half my usage is attractive (work is 126 miles from home hence why getting an EV in first place).
Went for the offer, so it's 29c for me.If you have an account with them and pay 5euro a month.
It's 33c payg (they did offer 1year free back in November)
I agree with you, let’s wait and see! My feelings are that none of these car manufacturers have got any Idea and can’t get their board room heads around EVs. That is except Tesla, who as we know set the charge points up first and are the industries gold standard, I just can’t afford the model Y when it arrives in the U.K.Its an odd proposition for an average person with home charging. Assuming you only ever used Ionity on longer trips you would need to use over 650kw a year just to break even with paying the monthly costs againest just paying the 69p. Considering you have 250 miles in the car when you set off most owners of partner cars are never going to reach 650kw in a year. I could sort of understand if the partner manufacturers cars just got the card with the car free and then the lower rate when using them. Similar to Teslas supercharger access. Oh well, lets see how this pans out.
Gold standard of what? Charging all their customers and letting everyone else charge for free???That is except Tesla, who as we know set the charge points up first and are the industries gold standard..
