You can also add on top of that the BP Pulse or IONITY subscriptions, basically you can get the KiaCharge RFID to use on those networks.The ‘Easy’ tariff is ideal for light users, with a one-off £1.99 charge to access the service and obtain their KiaCharge RFID card. With no monthly subscription fees, most charging stations instead require a £0.49 ‘session fee’ when users plug in (except chargers on the bp pulse and Pod Point networks), with users paying per kWh of electricity.
The ‘Plus’ tariff is the ideal option for those who rely more heavily on public charging. They simply pay a £2.99 monthly tariff, with no up-front charge or session fees. Like the ‘Easy’ tariff, users also pay per kWh, but earn an additional 15 per cent discount per kWh from most networks (except bp pulse, Pod Point and IONITY).
Good sentiment, but not practical. I agree with you but I'm realistic that there is not a lot of other options... Look at Instavolt, even they now have an app and possibly working towards subscription or payment tier structure... I'm worried that they will actually make it go through those as well. And all they have to do is make the contactless more expensive, e.g. payment tiers, as other providers.This kind of thing shouldn't be encouraged. Subscriptions, RFID, Connection Fees, Apps. Our EV infrastructure will never be properly functional until all of this is ditched.
In order to select either of the subscription options you need to input the VIN.Couldn’t sign in with any existing Kia account. Couldn’t find any evidence that having a Kia is a requirement?
