AA Ireland & Ohme Partner To Simplify EV Transition


The AA is delighted to announce its latest partnership with Cork-based smart charging company Ohme as the new official EV charging partner for its EV Insurance customer base.

The agreement will see the AA customers benefit from discounted Ohme EV chargers as a crucial part of its wider programme to encourage more drivers in Ireland to make the switch to electric. The AA offers EV specific insurance and is also currently offering three months free EV insurance for its customers. Some EV Car Insurance policies also offer wall charger cover as standard.

“We are delighted to announce that we will be partnering with Ohme as our official home charger supplier,” said Tom McIlduff, CEO at AA Ireland. “Ohme’s award-winning ePod and Home Pro chargers and reputation for excellent customer service meant it was the obvious choice for The AA and a great way to collaborate with a fast-expanding Irish business.”

“Our partnership with the AA underlines Ohme’s position as one of Ireland’s fastest growing smart charging companies,” said David Watson, CEO at Ohme. “The AA is a trusted, household brand in Ireland and Ohme has just been named as the Best EV Chargepoint Manufacturer in the recent Irish EV awards, so this is a perfect partnership bringing the benefits of off-peak charging with reduced running costs to EV drivers in Ireland.”

Priced from €1099, Ohme’s range of smart chargers can connect seamlessly with all of Ireland’s electricity suppliers and automatically adjust an EV’s charging for drivers to take advantage of off-peak tariffs.

For instance, charging a 77kWh Volkswagen ID.3 from zero to 100 percent with an Ohme EV charger on an off-peak tariff, such as SSE Airtricity’s Night Boost*, could cost just €7.34 for an electric range of more than 574kms (WLTP Combined). Over the course of a year and 10,000kms of driving that would equate to running costs of less than €130.

Ohme also offers drivers the option to charge their car when renewable energy generation is at its highest, further lowering their CO2 impact. Ohme is the official EV charger provider for the Volkswagen Group, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo Cars and Polestar in Ireland and has worked with a number of other partners including Donegal County Council and Iarnród Éireann.
