The home EV charging experts

You’re bound to be thinking about your first car when you’re learning to drive or
have just passed your test. Going for an electric vehicle is the greener option and –
thanks to the dream team of home EV charging from Hive and British Gas – it’s the
most convenient one too.

You don’t need to worry about finding a petrol station when the fuel gauge nudges
into the red, or wondering if you’ve got enough left in the tank to make it home.
With Hive EV Charging, you can power up from the comfort of home. Even better,
it syncs with your tariff, so you charge when it’s cheapest and greenest. Simple!

3 reasons why Hive EV Charging makes sense for your pocket

1. A Year's FREE charging

Hive will give you 12 months’ free driving when you install Hive EV Charging. All you need is a smart meter and a British Gas energy tariff – and it’s easy to switch if you don’t already have one. Then once you’ve enabled it in the Hive app, all your charging done in FreeCharge mode will be reimbursed.

2. Charge when it’s cheapest

SmartCharge* is Hive’s first ever intelligent scheduling tool and will charge your EV when the grid is quietest. Just plug in, set when you need it charged by and then leave Hive’s clever tech to find the cheapest times to charge. It’ll calculate your savings and take them off your British Gas energy bill too.

*Requires a smart meter and British Gas electricity tariff. See for more info.

3. From just £93.90 a month (for 10 months)

Not only can having your own EV chargepoint at home save you money, Hive help to make installing one as affordable as possible with a choice of ways to pay. Don’t want to shell out for it all in one go? No problem! Buy yours with expert installation and you can spread the cost with interest-free credit.

Hive EV Charging makes life easy

Smart tech like Hive EV Charging can help to simplify life, so you can spend more
time doing the things you love.


Always ready and waiting when you need it

No more driving around hunting for a petrol station or a public charger (or
hanging around waiting until one is available) – Hive EV Charging is always
waiting for you at home.


Get on with life while you charge

At public charge points, you’ll often have a boring wait while your car charges. But with Hive EV Charging you can charge overnight while you sleep, or just plug in and crack on with the rest of your day.


Get the best rates for your charging

When you charge using your energy tariff, you’ll get better rates than at public charge points. And even charge for free when you have Hive EV Charging and a British Gas energy tariff.


Control with an easy-to-use app

Charge your way with the Hive app and control your charging from wherever you are with just a few taps.


See your spend in pounds and pence

The Hive app puts you in charge with accurate updates in real time so you can see exactly what you’re spending – anywhere, anytime.

For total peace of mind, choose expert installation by fully qualified engineers, all with the British Gas seal of approval. They’ll take care of all the paperwork too so there’s one less thing for you to worry about.
