Charging at home – it’s simple.

When you purchase your new EV, knowing how best to charge your car at home is a key consideration. There are some easy options to keep you on the move.

Charging at Home

The Electric Car Store understands that when you have purchased an electric vehicle you need to feel assured that you can get from A to B and know you have options to top up your power, just like you felt you could pop to the fuel station. The good news is that electric charging points across the UK are increasing rapidly, so you should always know that you can top up and be on your way.

Plus, there are several brilliant apps, such as ZAP Map, to enable you to locate where the charging units are and plan longer electric journeys, so you really can plan a worry-free journey.
