Honda to provide own brand home chargers

Post by Rob » Wed Sep 11, 2019 11:26 am

Honda is offering its own branded home wall chargers, and installing chargers in lampposts for on-street charging.

No further details have been released yet, other than a couple of picutres:

You can have this installed in your home? This is interesting. I was under the impression that you had to always charge the vehicle on the go but this is a game-changer in my book. Do you know if they began implementing the ones on the streets yet?

Government will pay £500 towards it at home (OLEV grant), so you can get a decent 7 kW charger for under £400. See https://pod-point.com/products/homecharge

Do you have off-street parking at home? If so, charging the car while you sleep, using cheap off-peak electricity, is a no-brainer.
