Volkswagen and Tesco want to make it easier for you to charge your electric car while you’re out. So by the end of 2020 they will be rolling out EV charging bays across 400 Tesco stores. All of the chargers will be installed by Pod Point, the UK’s largest independent public charging network operator.

To make charging more accessible, the 7kW fast chargers will be available free of charge. But even if you decide to use the rapid 50kW charger you’ll only pay a small fee in line with the going market rate.

You will need to download the Pod Point app (or use the web page version) to use the charger.
