Charging offer

As part of taking an EV with Octopus EV, we offer you for free, either the:

  1. At home package: a home EV charger with a standard installation. And, if you are or become an Octopus Energy customer, and you switch to the Intelligent Octopus Go tariff or Octopus Go tariff, up to 4,000 miles worth of credit will be added to your Octopus Energy bill. This equates to a £75 credit.
  2. On the road package: up to 4,000 miles worth of EV charge in the form of public charging credit through Electroverse. This equates to £600 Electroverse charging credit.

This offer is subject to the terms and conditions noted below.

At home package

Home charger with a standard installation

The free home charger offer only applies to certain chargers with a standard installation. The chargers eligible under this offer may change from time to time, we can advise you as to which are available or you can find more information here.

If you fall outside of a standard installation or want a different charger, you will be quoted directly for any additional costs by Octopus Energy Services, our sister company who manages the installation. If you have your charger installed before your EV arrives, and you then cancel your EV order, you will be liable for the full cost of the charger and installation.

We cannot guarantee that the charger installation will occur before delivery of your vehicle, and installation lead times can be up to 16 weeks.

If you are not able to charge your vehicle from home or opt out of the home charger offer, we will instead offer up to 4,000 miles of credit on Electroverse as part of our ‘on the road’ package (details below).

Up to 4,000 free miles of energy with your home charger

Once you’ve successfully joined Octopus Energy and taken either the Intelligent Octopus Go tariff or Octopus Go tariff, a credit of £75 will be applied to your Octopus Energy account.

This credit amount (£75) is calculated based on charging your EV during the off-peak window on the Intelligent Octopus Go tariff or the Octopus Go tariff as follows:

It assumes an efficiency of four miles of range per kWh used (but this varies depending on your EV), so 4,000 miles requires 1,000 kWh of energy, and as it costs 7.5p per kWh to charge your car during the off-peak window on the Intelligent Octopus Go tariff, this is £75 of credit. If instead you switch to the Octopus Go tariff, the cost to charge during the off-peak window is 9p per kWh, so the credit of £75 will get you an estimate of 3,158 miles.

On the road package

Up to 4,000 free miles with Electroverse

Electroverse gives EV drivers access to public chargers across the UK and beyond with one card and app, with zero set up costs or ongoing access fees. You don't need to be an Octopus Energy customer to use Electroverse.

Once you’ve successfully signed up to Electroverse, the credit code we provide you with will allow you to redeem £600 of credit through your Electroverse account. The credit amount (£600) is calculated based on charging your EV at public charging stations as follows:

It assumes an efficiency of four miles of range per kWh used (this will vary depending on what EV you have), so 4,000 miles requires 1,000 kWh of energy. Based on an average network cost of 60p per kWh* to charge with Electroverse, we will provide you with £600 inc VAT in the form of credit on your Electroverse account.


The 60p/kWh average network cost is calculated as followed:

As of 12/01/2024, there are 41,285 connectors on the Electroverse network, of which:

  • 70% are slow/fast chargers (average cost of 46p/kWh)
  • 30% are rapid/ultra chargers (average cost of 76p/kWh)

The cost of your charge will depend on the chargers you use, and how regularly you use them. An average cost of 60p/kWh is based on using a mix of chargers on the Electroverse network.


Please note: These calculations are correct at time of publication but are subject to change if energy prices change on Intelligent Octopus Go, Octopus Go, or with Electroverse.

The offer is subject to the following:

  • If electing for the ‘at home’ package, you must have or be able to install an eligible home EV charger or have had one installed before this offer takes effect, and be an Octopus Energy customer.
  • We will make available to you information about which EV chargers are eligible before you select your lease.
  • We will provide the free home charging credit on your Octopus electricity account once you have successfully switched to either the Intelligent Octopus Go tariff or Octopus Go tariff and had your charger installed. Please note that switching to this tariff and/or having a charger installed may take some time, and will depend on whether you are already an Octopus Energy customer, and whether you already have a smart meter and compatible EV charger installed.
    • If for any reason you are not able to have a smart meter installed and therefore are not able to switch to one of the eligible Octopus Energy tariffs, we may at our discretion provide you with the £75 energy credit. This is subject to you being an Octopus Energy customer and is at our absolute discretion.
    • Please note that this would not constitute a reason to cancel your vehicle free of charge, or return the car without penalty.
  • Name and address on the lease and energy account must be the same, or you must be able to prove that you cohabit.
  • If electing for the ‘on the road’ package, you must sign up for an Electroverse account in order for the credit to be applied.
  • We reserve the right to remove or amend this offer at any time.
  • This offer is not transferable and no cash equivalent will be offered.
  • Subject to availability and eligibility. See our charging terms and conditions here for further details, including terms around free home charging installation for standard installs.
  • Nothing in this offer prevents you from switching energy provider or tariff at any time during your EV lease term. However, to get the benefit of the ‘at home’ charging offer you must be supplied by Octopus Energy on the Intelligent Octopus Go or Octopus Go tariffs for the credit to be applied.
  • The free miles offers are subject to change if energy prices change on Intelligent Octopus Go, Octopus Go, or with Electroverse.
