HOME CHARGING

Charging your car at home is convenient and cost-effective. It can be done overnight on lower energy rates meaning your vehicle is ready to go when you wake up in the morning. Although a standard home socket comes with the car and can be an option for occasional usage, we would recommend having a Wallbox home charger installed.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HOME CHARGING?

A Wallbox home charger provides a convenient and safe solution to charging your car at home. With a full charge in around 8 hours, your battery is always full charged before your journey starts.

  • CONVENIENCE

    Just plug your UX 300e into your home electric charger and it will fully charge in 8 hours (6.6 kW).

    LOWER ENERGY COSTS

    Many electricity suppliers offer rates that are cheaper at night-time and could reduce your bill.

    GOVERNMENT SUPPORT

    The Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) provides grant funding of up to 75% towards the cost of installing a domestic charging unit up to £350. Householders must own, lease or be named as the primary user of an eligible EV or have a vehicle on order to qualify for the grant.

MAKING HOME CHARGING SIMPLE

There will be an electric home car charger product available from our installation partner from January 2021. If you already have a home charger then we recommend that you have a survey to assess if it still meets the current safety standards.

THREE STEPS TO GET A HOME CHARGER INSTALLED

  • ADVICE

    ADVICE

    A Lexus sales consultant will discuss your home charging options to help you choose the charger that is right for you, taking into consideration your home and charging requirements.

    ASSESSMENT

    ASSESSMENT

    At the point of ordering your car, we will refer you to our installation partner who will contact you directly to carry out a simple installation self-survey. This assessment will determine installation requirements and confirm the final installation quote.

    INSTALLATION

    An appointment will then be arranged for an engineer to visit, in plenty of time before your car arrives. They will assess the best place to fit your charger in terms of convenience and safety.

    WHAT GOVERNMENT GRANTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR HOME CHARGING?

    The Government OLEV Grant will contribute up to £350 towards the purchase and installation of your electric car charger. But there are certain requirements you must meet in order to qualify for the Grant:

    -You have off-street parking
    -Your property is within the UK
    -Your vehicle is eligible for the grant
    -You have not already claimed the grant for your vehicle

    It’s also important to note that, by claiming the Grant, you are not exceeding the limit of two OLEV funded charge points per household.

    If you are eligible, our installation partner will complete the grant application at the same time as ordering your electric home charger. If the application is successful, the discount will be automatically applied by our installation partner and the discount is built into our indicative price of the electric home charger.

HOME CHARGING

WORK OUT THE COST OF HOME CHARGING

The cost of a full charge will depend on your domestic electric tariff and which charging points you use externally.

To fully recharge the UX 300e you will need 54.3 kWh., so to work out the cost simply multiply your tariff per kWh by 54.3. Typical charges for a 196 mile journey are £5 on an Overnight Tariff, and £7 on a Standard Domestic Tariff.
