CUPRA e-HYBRIDs now eligible for the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme

06/09/2021

In a nutshell:

  • e-HYBRID customers can now get £350 towards the cost of their home wall box
  • CUPRA UK recommends Pod Point as a recommended supplier

Customers who purchased or are in the process of purchasing an e-HYBRID are now eligible for the £350 Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) grant towards the cost of a home wall box to charge their car. Pod Point is CUPRA’s recommended supplier but customers can choose from any office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) approved suppliers and installers. The cost for a 3.6KW Pod Point wall box is £849 (inc. VAT and installation), reducing to £499 with the EVHS grant. This wall box will fully charge an e-HYBRID battery in around 3 and a half hours. If customers wish to future proof their home for future electric vehicle ownership, they can choose to invest in a wall box with higher charging capacity.

The grant is available to UK residents if they:

  • Have proof of ownership or lease of an approved full-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle
    or proof of such a vehicle being on order (new or used)
  • Have designated private off-street parking
  • Use a supplier approved by OLEV (view a list here)


Why should customers invest in a wall box?

  • Both plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) and battery electric vehicles (BEV) charge quicker using a wall box.
  • The wall box can be used with any future PHEV or BEV purchases
  • The wall box can be installed in a position to make charging convenient (i.e. no need to run cables through a garage)
  • Accredited installers like Pod Point offer three years’ warranty and wifi capability
