Chargemaster announces new membership scheme with low-cost tariff and free loan of BMW i8 and Tesla models

Chargemaster, the largest operator of electric vehicle charging points in the UK, has confirmed a new subscription scheme called POLAR Plus, which will also offer members the chance to borrow the latest luxury electric cars.

The expanding POLAR London and POLAR national network of over 4,000 charging points will be available to any electric motorist for a monthly subscription of just £7.85 - similar to popular streaming services Netflix or Amazon Instant - and the first six months’ subscription is free.

Over 80% of the POLAR Plus charging points are free to use, with remaining points charged at the equivalent of 9p per unit of electricity* - typically less than the cost of charging at home. A pay-as-you-go instant access rate will also be available for non-members. These new tariffs make a significant difference for EV drivers especially on rapid chargers where members can charge an electric car to 80% capacity in around 20 minutes in all POLAR rapid locations at a cost of about £2 when previously it would cost around £6.

Renault ZOE now includes free domestic charging-box

The free wall-box is part of a partnership between Renault and the British telematics company Chargemaster. Commenting on the partnership, David Martell, Chargemaster CEO, said: "We are delighted to be Renault's official charging partner in the UK. As government figures show, plug-in car sales are increasing as more and more motorists choose to reduce their emissions and their running costs.

" The wall-box allows a full charge from zero to 100 per cent full in three to four hours, and is weatherproof so can be installed indoors or outside, with a choice of tethered or socketed cables. The wall-box provides sufficient range for a ZOE to travel up to 149 miles on the official NEDC cycle - comfortably more than most electric vehicle owners' daily mileage. The charger is protected by key controlled access and is covered by a four-year warranty - matching the vehicle manufacturer cover.

EV's could save 65% off fuel bills

Families could cut as much as 65 percent off monthly fuel bills by making the switch to an electric car according to a recent study by Nissan. This equates to a saving of £22 each month, for the average UK family. Equivalent to a family meal, a trip to the cinema or new clothes; the extra cash may well tip the balance when it comes to picking the next family car. The UK families surveyed rated low running costs and safety as the top priorities when selecting a family car; far ahead of considerations such as comfort or performance.

Customer Reviews

Review by Mrs Z, London, September 2015

I had my chargepoint installed last week. What a great service! Alan did top quality job. It makes such a massive difference in the world where it's so difficult to find a decent craftsman. Thank you very much!!!

Review by Mr B, Kent, September 2015

I would like to give some positive feedback regarding my recent home installation. I was served by a guy called Mike. He was very polite and very informative. He explained clearly the different options of installation available to me and gave me good advice on why my original positioning point was not sensible. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he did the work cleanly and efficiently. Can hardly tell he was there (other than I can now drive my car !) Please pass on my compliments to him. Modjo in the customer service team was also very helpful and arranged my install within a short space of time, so also great service from that side. The only comment I would make is that my preferred location involved running a cable through my roof space and out through the wall. Mike advised that in order to do that and pin it properly, it would have been a two man job. It was obvious from the pictures I sent in that this was the case and therefore if we had gone ahead with my original plan, then the installation would not have been completed. That said, all worked out great in the end and I am entirely satisfied.

Review by Mr H, Hornchurch, September 2015

This afternoon Alan Richardson came to install our charge point, he telephoned in advance with an estimated time of arrival, he was polite and took the time to explain everything he was going to do, my rcd consumer unit is quite old and caused him a problem but he managed to sort it without any moaning. After he had completed the install he once again explained things. Very pleased with his work, very neat job and he left no mess.

Review by Mr B, Bolton, September 2015

I am pleased to advise that your electrician Daniel Bolton has done a sterling job. He was friendly and tidied up after he was finished. He took time to complete the paperwork, explaining each step and gave me a demonstration. I am more than happy with his service and wish him well.

Review by Mr C, Hunstanton, September 2015

We recently had our Home Charger installed by Alan from your team and we thought the experience and installation was great. The initial delivery date extended beyond the arrival or our car and you kindly placed us on a cancellation list and we received a call to bring this forward, which was greatly appreciated. When Alan arrived to install he was extremely efficient and explained the installation process and then how to use the device very clearly. Overall we were extremely happy with your service.
