Customers can now drive across Europe with the freedom to charge wherever they want and pay in the way that suits their wallet best. In order to make public charging increasingly accessible, Plugsurfing and Jaguar Land Rover offer new subscription plans for the Jaguar Public Charging App and Land Rover Public Charging App that allow customers to choose tailored charging packages based on their specific needs. Starting on 12.08.2019, customers can upgrade to one of three new payment options: Pay as you Go, Gold and Platinum charging packages.
Drivers can by default enjoy continued no-commitment, pay-as-you-go pricing. This option
requires payment only when charging services are used. Customers can search the Jaguar
Public Charging App or Land Rover Public Charging App to check the different prices at various charging points. The new Gold charging package is ideal for frequent EV drivers or local commuters. Drivers only need to keep two prices in mind as this subscription offers
countrywide fixed rates for both AC and DC charging. Subscribers benefit from reduced
average charging prices compared to the pay-as-you-go model. The monthly subscription fee is 4,99€ (including VAT) with a fixed charging price. Everyday EV-drivers gain rewards for their frequent charging, as the Platinum charging package for 9,99€ (including VAT) a month with fixed AC and DC charging rates offers substantial savings on charging costs. Both options have a minimum six month subscription period.
Chantal Shearing, eMobility Manager for Jaguar Land Rover said, “This update to our public
charging offer with our partner Plugsurfing strengthens our commitment to give customers
easy access to charging throughout Europe combined with simple market tailored pricing
These subscription options are a part of a continued strategy between Plugsurfing and Jaguar Land Rover to ensure that customer access to hassle-free mobility is at the center of the EV experience. The universal rates for AC and DC charging and access to fast charging on HPC networks like Ionity and Fastned eliminate the unpredictability and hassle from the charging experience.
“We created this new pricing model to accommodate the driver’s preference for simplicity,
while also taking the specific market conditions of different countries into account,’ says Bettina Riekenberg, Key Account Executive at Plugsurfing. “We are happy to cover the varying needs of EV drivers in one streamlined pricing model.”
