Polestar Partners with Ohme for Smart Charging

Polestar, a prominent electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, has officially chosen Ohme, an award-winning dynamic smart charging company, as its home charging partner in the UK.

Why It Matters

This collaboration signifies a strategic move by both companies to push forward in the rapidly growing EV market in the UK. Partnerships like these make EVs more appealing and accessible to potential buyers, encouraging sustainable transportation options and boosting market confidence in electric mobility.

Key Points

  • Mutual Acknowledgement: David Watson, CEO at Ohme, highlighted that this partnership reaffirms Ohme’s reputation as a rapidly growing dynamic smart charging company. Simultaneously, Jonathan Goodman, Head of Polestar UK, expressed enthusiasm about working with Ohme, emphasizing alignment in values and culture.
  • Smart Charging Advantage: Ohme’s chargers can connect in real-time with the National Grid. Their unique software can adjust charging schedules to tap into low price charging periods with smart off-peak tariffs.
  • Cost Efficiency: Using an Ohme smart charger with a Polestar 2 Long Range Single Motor can lead to significant cost savings. For an average UK driver covering 6800 miles annually, the expense would be approximately £103.02. This is in stark contrast to the Standard Variable Tariff’s cost of £384.58 or over £1200 for an equivalent petrol car.
  • Special Offer: Polestar 2 purchasers will receive a complimentary Ohme charger with standard installation for a limited period.
  • Recent Achievements: Ohme has recently received accolades such as the Fast Track Company of the Year at the 2023 UK Green Business Awards and Best Electric Charging Point Provider by Business Motoring. Additionally, Ohme was appointed as Polestar’s official charging partner in Ireland in September.

Bottom Line

Polestar’s collaboration with Ohme not only underscores the growing prominence of EVs in the UK market but also showcases the significance of strategic partnerships in enhancing the overall EV user experience. Such initiatives can further accelerate the adoption of EVs, promoting a greener and more sustainable future.
