Honda and SSE Airtricity offering free home charging

Universal Honda Ltd., distributors of Honda cars in Ireland, has teamed up with SSE Airtricity to celebrate the launch of the all-new Honda e.

The partnership offers all eligible customers of the fully electric Honda e the installation of a free home charging system. Customers simply check their SEAI grant eligibility and SSE Airtricity take care of the rest. The offer is available across the five Honda e dealerships nationwide.

The Honda e is the Japanese brand’s first fully electric car. It went on sale in Ireland in November and is priced from €29,995.

John Saunders, sales and marketing director for Universal Honda Ltd. said: “With a greater focus on environmental issues such as climate change we are witnessing our customers looking to seek cleaner mobility and energy choices here in Ireland.

“The launch of the Honda e represents our commitment to reflecting this change as we transition towards Honda’s 2022 goal, where our entire model range will be electrified.

“Therefore, we are delighted to be partnering with SSE Airtricity who pride themselves on providing 100 per cent green energy and together we are helping to improve our environment.

“Under this partnership all eligible Honda e customers will receive a free home charging system from SSE Airtricity making the transition to owning an electric car as easy as possible.

“We all have a part to play in securing our futures and choosing how you power your home or car can make that happen.”

Honda e wins in Germany
Meanwhile, the new Honda e also became the first Japanese car to be named ‘German Car of the Year 2021’ in the country’s prestigious annual Car of the Year Awards. The car also won in the ‘New Energy’ category.

This is the latest in a series of prestigious accolades to be given to the Honda e since its launch in earlier this year, including the top honour in the Red Dot Design Awards.

This latest award for the Honda e follows notable success and recognition from across Europe. In the UK, the Honda e triumphed in Autocar’s ‘Britain’s Best Car’ Awards 2020 in the ‘Best Car Tech’ category, and it was recently named ‘City / Small Car of the Year’ in the News International Motor Awards 2020.
