Centrica through the British Gas brand and Volkswagen Group are set to accelerate EV adoption across the UK, after agreeing a three-year partnership to provide home charging hardware solutions for new EV owners.

The deal will see Elli, the central provider of charging hardware and related services for the main Volkswagen Group, work exclusively with British Gas to deliver a package of home charging installations, aftersales services and preparatory electrical upgrades across the UK. This will help customers to transition to EV smoothly and cost effectively, initially across the Volkswagen, SEAT, ŠKODA and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles with plans for Audi to join later this year.
