August 2023

Mercedes-Benz in the UK has chosen dynamic smart charging company Ohme as its new official home charging partner.

The agreement will see Mercedes-Benz recommend Ohme chargers to customers who need a home charging solution. And an Ohme Home Pro charger will be available in Mercedes-Benz showrooms for customers to view.

“We are delighted to announce that we will be partnering with Ohme as our recommended home charger supplier,” said Jason Allbutt, Head of Product and Planning from Mercedes-Benz. “Ohme’s technological innovation and excellent approach towards customer service and professionalism align with the core values of Mercedes-Benz.”

David Watson, CEO of Ohme said: “Mercedes-Benz has one of the strongest premium line-ups of electric vehicles. This collaboration with Mercedes-Benz underlines Ohme’s position as one of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic smart charging companies in the UK. We’re looking forward to introducing Mercedes-Benz customers to the benefits of smart charging and supporting its network of agents.”

Ohme’s dynamic smart chargers can connect with the national grid in real time and automatically adjust its charging for drivers to take advantage of all the times of low price charging with smart off-peak tariffs, not just set times.

Charging a Mercedes-Benz EQA with a 66kWh battery from 0 to 80% charge with an Ohme smart charger on a smart off-peak tariff, such as Octopus Intelligent*, could cost just £3.96. Ohme also offers drivers the option to charge their car when renewable energy generation on the national grid is at its highest, further lowering their CO2 impact.

Ohme has just been named as Fast Track Company of the Year in the 2023 UK Green Business Awards as well as Best Electric Charging Point Provider by Business Motoring.

* Octopus Intelligent at 7.5p/kWh for 23.30-05.30am, Standard Variable Tariff – 30p/kWh
