Award-winning smart-charging company Ohme is the new official charging partner for Kearys Motor Group in Ireland.
The agreement will see Kearys Motor Group recommend Ohme EV chargers for all of its new and used electrified vehicle sales with an Ohme Home Pro charger in showrooms for customers to view. Based in Cork and London, Ohme was one of Ireland’s fastest-growing smart-charging companies in 2022 and is looking forward to continued strong growth in 2023.
Kearys Motor Group is Ireland’s largest family-owned motor group, representing the likes of BMW, Hyundai, Nissan, Renault and Mini across 12 dealerships and employing 450 people throughout Ireland. Kearys also own Carstore, Ireland’s largest used car supermarket with three superstores in Dublin, Cork and Limerick as well as a strong online presence.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Ohme as our preferred EV home charging supplier,” said Brendan Keary, CEO of Kearys Motor Group. “We considered many potential charging partners and it was clear to us that Ohme’s smart charging capability, award-winning products and excellent customer service made it the obvious choice for Kearys. With increasing numbers of customers choosing new and pre-owned electric and hybrid vehicles, we’re looking forward to recommending Ohme’s smart chargers.”
The company’s smart chargers can connect with the national grid in real time and automatically adjust their charging for drivers to take advantage of all the times of low-price charging with off-peak tariffs.
Ohme also offers drivers the option to charge their car when renewable energy generation on the national grid is at its highest, lowering their CO2 impact.
“Our partnership with Kearys underlines Ohme’s position as one of Ireland’s fastest-growing charging companies,” said David Watson, CEO at Ohme. “Like Ohme, Kearys has a strong reputation for exceptional customer care and service and we’re looking forward to working together to give its customers a seamless charging experience with reduced running costs.”
Ohme works with several fleet partners across Ireland, including the AA, Donegal County Council, and Iarnród Éireann. In the UK, it is the official charging provider for the Volkswagen Group as well as Motability Operations, the largest fleet operator in the UK, and has been named as the Best Electric Charging Point Provider by Business Motoring.
