The grant has been abolished, as of this month I believe.FWIW I have a couple of the 32Amp (7.2kW) versions of these - https://evonestop.co.uk/collections/home-charging-range/products/wallpod-ev-charging-unit-type-2-socket-16-32-amp3-6-7-2kw-ip65. Very reasonably priced and reliable 2 years in!
make sure to apply for the grant before you buy anything!
PS. 7.2kW (32A) is the fastest the Kona can charge at home.
Oh really?! I didn't realise there was a grant for the actual charging point. Will look in to it. Thank you.The recent Budget abolished the grant for companies purchasing EV's for staff. As far as i am aware, the grant for installing a Charge Point in your home was retained.
Why is the charging speed of such importance to you?Thank you.
I would like a fast charge if possible. We don't have Solar PV or an electric shower. Am hoping for a tethered, however, if it appears invasive, then I'll go for non-tethered.
I'll check out the EO mini.
Ok. Yes, you are right. I am possibly focusing on something that is not very important. I just want to be sure I get the best one to suit. Thanks.Why is the charging speed of such importance to you?
Assuming you are switching from traditional fuel and intend charging at home overnight, you will just get into the habit of plugging the car in when you arrive home from work. The car will be fully charged in the morning regardless of the type of charger you buy.
For me, the importance of fast charging applies only when you need to charge in a hurry e.g. at motorway service stations, shopping centres, etc
