EV Charging and your SsangYong
Owning a Korando e-Motion means that powering your ride is not only effortless but also eco-friendly and cost-effective. Charging is as simple as refuelling a traditional petrol or diesel car but with the bonus of reducing your carbon footprint and keeping money in your pocket.
Whether at home, work or on the go, it is a convenient and easy process that will leave you with peace of mind knowing that you're making a positive impact on the environment.
So let us show you how and where to charge your EV and help you drive towards a brighter future.
Charging at home
As a proud e-Motion owner, you can elevate your driving experience by having a charge point installed at your home. And why not? Over 80% of EV owners in the UK charge their cars at home because it's not just the most budget-friendly method, but also the most convenient.
With a home charge point, you'll have the freedom to charge your car overnight and wake up to a fully charged battery. That means less stopping on your journey, and more time spent enjoying the open road.
Getting a home charger installed is easy, too! Simply register for an installation with our affiliate partner, EO, at your local SsangYong dealer.
Charging at the workplace
Plugging in your EV at work has some great advantages. It can help you save money on charging costs at home as you use your workplace charging infrastructure. Plus, it's super useful to charge up throughout the day and have a full battery for your commute home.
That’s not all, as businesses can also get up to £350 towards the cost of installing a charging socket at work through the government's workplace charging scheme. This can also help reduce your business's vehicle emissions to zero, making it a sustainable choice for everyone.
Using public charging stations
If you're concerned about charging your electric vehicle while on the go, don't worry. In the UK, you can find more than 49,000 charging points at 29,000 different locations. That's more than the total number of petrol stations!
You can easily find charging points all over the place - from town centres, shopping outlets, supermarkets, and service stations – plus free apps like Octopus Electroverse, Zap-Map, and ChargePoint that can help you plan your journey, find charging locations, and even get information about speed, price, and availability.
The great news is that recharging your vehicle is quick and easy. With a 100-kW rapid charger, you can go from 20% to 80% charge in just 33 minutes. That's the perfect amount of time to grab a coffee or a quick bite to eat while you wait for your vehicle to charge. So, don't be put off about running low on energy – just hit the road and relax, knowing that you have plenty of charging options available to keep you going.
