Bumper partners with electric vehicle home charger brand VCHRGD to supercharge UK’s transition to zero-emission
Bumper has partnered with electric vehicle home charger brand VCHRGD to make the UK’s electric vehicle (EV) movement and transition to zero-emissions more affordable for all.
With the 2030 ban on the production of new diesel and petrol cars looming, the need to accelerate EV adoption is clear. However, a lack of charging points across the UK as the Government falls behind on its installation targets and expensive plug-in costs are currently presenting major hurdles.
A home charger is highly recommended for all EV drivers, mainly due to cost savings per charge but also, for convenience. Launched in February 2022, VCHRGD offers charging technologies which are both reliable and affordable as well as smart and sustainable.
Jack Allman, Chief Commercial Officer at Bumper commented:
“At Bumper, we’re conscious of leaving a positive mark on the motoring industry. To date, this has taken place by lightening the burden of vehicle repair costs for motorists, but our new partnership with VCHRGD enables us to make an impact in a different light.
“It’s hard to downplay the importance of climate change. However, motorists are currently discouraged from making the switch to EVs due to a lack of infrastructure. As long as customers are unable to guarantee that they’ll have access to fully operational charging points, home charging presents the best solution to encourage the transition to EV usage.”
Alex Watson, founder and director at VCHRGD, commented:
“In under a year, the impact of VCHRGD’s customer-first approach has been incredibly exciting and rewarding to see. Our new partnership with Bumper will only make electric vehicles and home charging more accessible to UK EV drivers.
“With seven years left until the ban on the sale of diesel and petrol cars, it’s imperative that we act now, not only to offer great charging solutions but to support and educate drivers on the transition to electric vehicles.”
