Mercedes-Benz EQC customers now can enjoy integrated access to the UK’s largest public electric vehicle charging network. Polar, operated by BP Chargemaster, is now available along with other charging networks, through one optional subscription, via Mercedes me Charge.

A three-year subscription to Mercedes me Charge comes as standard with the EQC, and due to the unique cooperation between Mercedes-Benz Cars UK and BP Chargemaster, Mercedes me Charge customers in the UK can upgrade their basic plan to have access to a Polar Plus membership (6 months subscription free). This membership provides the driver with a lower cost electricity tariff than on the basic option.

The EQC’s route-optimised navigation system calculates and directs drivers to their nearest Mercedes me charge points, taking into account the remaining electric range. Customers can also use the voice-activated MBUX system to find charging locations, as well as their availability and electricity pricing. Access to the charging stations is provided by the Mercedes me Charge card, Mercedes me App or via the vehicle’s media display – and customers can benefit from an integrated payment function with billing conveniently managed through Mercedes me.

BP Chargemaster is also the Mercedes-Benz Cars UK preferred partner for customer home charging wallboxes, which are eligible for the government’s EV Homecharge Scheme grant.
