Mercedes-Benz Selects Ohme as Official Smart Charger Partner

Mercedes-Benz UK has partnered with Ohme, a leading smart charging company, as its official home charging partner. This collaboration will lead to Mercedes-Benz recommending Ohme’s smart chargers to customers seeking a home charging solution. Ohme Home Pro chargers will also be showcased in Mercedes-Benz showrooms for customer viewing.

Why It Matters

This partnership is significant as it aligns with Mercedes-Benz’s commitment to technological innovation, customer service, and professionalism, as stated by Jason Allbutt, Head of Product and Planning at Mercedes-Benz. The collaboration also underscores Ohme’s position as one of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic smart charging companies, according to David Watson, CEO of Ohme.

Key Points

  • Ohme’s dynamic smart chargers can connect with the national grid in real-time, automatically adjusting charging to take advantage of low-price charging periods with smart off-peak tariffs.
  • Charging a Mercedes-Benz EQA with a 66kWh battery from 0 to 80% with an Ohme smart charger on a smart off-peak tariff, such as Octopus Intelligent, could cost just £3.96.
  • Ohme also allows drivers to charge their vehicles when renewable energy generation on the national grid is at its peak, reducing their CO2 impact.
  • Ohme was recently recognized as the Fast Track Company of the Year in the 2023 UK Green Business Awards and as the Best Electric Charging Point Provider by Business Motoring.

Bottom Line

The partnership between Mercedes-Benz and Ohme is a strategic move that not only enhances the electric vehicle charging experience for Mercedes-Benz customers but also promotes sustainable and cost-effective practices. This collaboration is expected to further solidify Ohme’s position as a leading smart charging company in the UK and contribute to Mercedes-Benz’s commitment to customer service and technological innovation.
