Volkswagen Group UK Partners With OVO
To Power EV Customers’ Energy Needs


Volkswagen Group UK has partnered with energy experts OVO to offer customers preferential rates and bonuses, making it simpler and more cost-effective to switch to an electric vehicle. Those purchasing vehicles from any of the Volkswagen Group brands – Audi, CUPRA, SEAT, Škoda, Volkswagen Passenger Cars and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles – can take advantage of OVO’s market-leading ‘Charge Anytime’ add-on, as well as a number of other benefits. These include OVO’s intelligent grid technology, powered by Kaluza, which unlocks a charging rate nearly four times cheaper than the national average.

Earlier this year, Volkswagen Group announced it had renewed its home charging and wallbox partnership with Ohme. The addition of OVO to the ecosystem means Volkswagen Group and its retailers can also support customers with an energy recommendation, helping to complete the ‘package’ of EV ownership.

Under the partnership with OVO, Volkswagen Group customers can charge for just 7p/kWh at home at any time of the day or night. The Charge Anytime add-on powered by Kaluza’s smart software, has enabled customers to save over £10 million since its launch in 2022. It works by automatically enabling charging when carbon emissions and prices are lower.

In addition, when Volkswagen Group customers sign up to OVO, they will receive 10,000 free miles, followed by 1,000 free miles on their contract anniversary for three further years. Diesel and petrol car drivers could also bank thousands of EV miles to power their future electric car through OVO Beyond – the UK’s first ‘Energy Savings Account’ helping to reward customers planning to make the switch. They can ‘bank’ an extra 50 miles on top of the 100 EV miles per month for up to 24 months if they then go on to buy a new Volkswagen Group electric vehicle.

Commenting on the partnership, Electric Vehicle Lead for Volkswagen Group UK, Kate Jeffreys, said: “Following a thorough tender process, we were delighted to join forces with OVO to offer Volkswagen Group customers a solution for clean, affordable and simple energy. On top of our Ohme partnership for home charging, we believe the agreement with OVO breaks down more barriers for customers who are looking to make the switch to an electric vehicle. Buying, owning and driving an electric vehicle is simple and easy – and fun! We hope this latest addition to our holistic offering will be another attractive piece of the jigsaw for consumers.”

OVO’s Chief Commercial Officer, Mat Moakes said: ‘’OVO is committed to helping customers transition to an electric vehicle. Together with Volkswagen Group we are rewarding customers for making the switch to an EV. We look forward to extending our market leading Charge Anytime to more customers than ever before and helping consumers on their EV journey, all while cutting costs and carbon.”

Globally in 2023, the Volkswagen Group sold more than 771,000 electric vehicles, over a third more than in 2022. In the UK, it was responsible for one in every five battery electric passenger cars sold.
