Groupe PSA signs up Pod Point as exclusive charge point supplier
Groupe PSA has appointed Pod Point as its exclusive charge point supplier for its Peugeot, Citroën, DS Automobiles and Vauxhall brands in the UK.
The two-year agreement will see Pod Point become Groupe PSA’s exclusive EV charge point supplier for its Peugeot, Citroën, DS Automobiles and Vauxhall brands, ahead of the arrival of the Peugeot e-208, Vauxhall Corsa-e and DS 3 Crossback E-Tense in early 2020. And by 2025, every model sold by Groupe PSA, both car and LCV (light commercial vehicle), will have an electrified version.
As part of the firms’ partnership, the first 500 retail customers for the three vehicles will benefit from a free Pod Point home charger with standard installation. All Pod Point home chargers purchased through Groupe PSA’s UK dealer network will come with a five-year warranty, instead of the standard three-year warranty.
Pod Point will also work with Groupe PSA’s leasing arm, Free2Move Lease, as its preferred UK fleet charging provider.
Helen Lees, head of electric vehicles & connected services, Groupe PSA UK, said: “We partnered with Pod Point as our preferred EV charge point supplier in 2016 for our Peugeot and Citroën brands and have been impressed by their consistently high customer satisfaction ratings and reliable and simple to use network. It was an easy decision to expand the partnership to cover our DS Automobiles and Vauxhall brands and we look forward to continuing our relationship.”
