Charge anywhere

One of the common reasons people give for not making the switch to an electric car is the thought of running out of battery. But thanks to an growing network of public chargers, innovative home charging solutions, and many workplaces offering charge points, it’s becoming an unlikely issue.

From plugging in at the shops to installing a wall-box at home, discover the ways you can keep your car topped up.

Home charging

Charging your car at home is as easy as charging your phone or laptop. In fact if you only use your electric car to travel short distances, chances are you may never need to use a public charging station. Similar to when you plug in your phone, the battery will charge quickest up to 20%, and then slow down after it reaches 80% to protect its longevity.

Two charging options

Three-pin plug

You can plug your car into charge using a regular three-pin domestic socket. Domestic plugs run at 2.3kW and will charge a ŠKODA SUPERB PHEV in around five*

Home wall-box

For faster charging you can install a specialised wall-box, provided you have access to off-street parking. Wall-boxes are more powerful than a domestic socket and will charge an ENYAQ iV 60 Nav in 9.5 hours*. The SUPERB PHEV charges in just 3.5 hours via a wall-box*

Charging on the move

Charging while you’re out and about can be simple and cost-effective. The ever-expanding network of charging points means there are now more charging stations in the UK than petrol stations. Paying to charge is easy thanks to the numerous pay-as-you-go and subscription models on offer.

ŠKODA and Octopus Energy

We’ve partnered with Octopus Energy to offer £90 of charging credit to new and existing customers who switch to a dual fuel home energy supply. That’s the equivalent of up to 7,500 miles*.

Zap Map

Find your nearest charger easily. Zap Map instantly gives you the location of more than 15,000 charging bays across the UK.

Charging at work

Your employer may see real benefits from installing a charging station where you work. By applying for the Workplace Charging Scheme, they could receive a grant which saves £350 off the installation price for each bay they put in.

*Charging times will depend on various factors, including temperature, state of the battery, state of and capabilities of the charging unit and power supply. Actual charging time will vary depending on the level of charge in the battery, as well as environmental conditions. Charging times will also be affected by the charging curve for example once charging passes 80%, charging will slow to protect the battery’s longevity.
