Free Solo 2 POD Point available for electric and hybrid owners

One of the UK’s leading electric charging companies, POD Point, is offering free home charging kits to car owners in those regions, which is typically worth over £1,000 when fully installed.

The model that POD Point is giving away is the Solo 2, a smart communicating charge point that features a built-in GPRS to allow two-way communication between a charge point and an online account.

Using the Solo 2 allows people to see the amount of energy they have used when they are charging their car. Electric and hybrid car owners can also remotely lock the Solo 2 and set charging schedules, meaning they can set charging times via their laptop, mobile phone or PC.

The Solo 2 can be installed in the home or workplace, subject to a free site survey. People living within the M25 area can be considered if they take part in the Low Carbon London electric vehicle usage trial.

The Solo 2 is the perfect charging point to complement EV vehicles such as the Renault Fluence and the Renault Twizy. The Renault Zoe is also released later this year, with prices starting from £13,650 on-the-road after the UK Plug-in Car Grant.

The Solo 2 would also be a great option for Vauxhall Ampera owners in those regions. The Vauxhall Ampera is available from £29,995 OTR, also inclusive of the £5,000 government plug-in car grant.

Buyers interested in buying a new Vauxhall Ampera can contact Perrys Vauxhall dealerships.
