Kearys Motor Group has struck a new partnership with smart-charging company Ohme, to provide EV chargers to its customers.
The family-owned motor group, in Ireland, will recommend Ohme EV chargers for all of its new and used electrified vehicle sales with an Ohme Home Pro charger in showrooms for customers to view.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Ohme as our preferred EV home charging supplier,” said Brendan Keary, CEO of Kearys Motor Group. “We considered many potential charging partners and it was clear to us that Ohme’s smart charging capability, award-winning products and excellent customer service made it the obvious choice for Kearys. With increasing numbers of customers choosing new and pre-owned electric and hybrid vehicles, we’re looking forward to recommending Ohme’s smart chargers.”
Ohme recently became the official charging provider for the Volkswagen Group and will place charge points in all Volkswagen, Cupra, Skoda and Seat showrooms.
Its smart chargers can connect with the national grid in real time and automatically adjust their charging for drivers to take advantage of all the times of low price charging with off-peak tariffs.
The company also offers drivers the option to charge their car when renewable energy generation on the national grid is at its highest, further lowering their CO2 impact.
Kearys Motor Group represents the likes of BMW, Hyundai, Nissan, Renault and Mini across 12 dealerships throughout Ireland. Kearys also own Carstore, Ireland’s largest used car supermarket with three superstores in Dublin, Cork and Limerick as well as a strong online presence.
