BMW Group Ireland has appointed Pod Point as a preferred EV home chargepoint supplier for BMW and MINI retail customers, further enhancing home charging services for retail customers.

The three-year agreement will see BMW and MINI customers purchasing a new electrified vehicle, at a BMW or MINI Retailer, offered the option of home charger consultation and installation by Pod Point’s expert team. Irish customers with home installations will benefit from a three-year Pod Point warranty included as standard. To date, Pod Point have already installed more than 3,800 home chargers for BMW and MINI owners in the UK.

With Pod Point’s smart home charging, EV drivers can charge up to 10 times faster than when using a 3-pin plug while also benefitting from the charger’s built-in safety features. Pod Point’s Solo 3 home chargers, when connected to WiFi, can receive over-the-air software updates to unlock new features without needing to install new hardware. This over-the-air functionality allows for software updates to enhance performance and allows Pod Point’s support team to perform remote diagnostics.


The Pod Point App’s charge activity monitoring feature provides vehicle owners with insights into energy usage, enabling them to determine how much energy they are using to charge their vehicle and the electricity cost over a specified period.


Kevin Davidson, Managing Director at BMW Group Ireland, said: “Charging at home is the most convenient and cost-effective way of charging an electric car. We are delighted to be partnering with Pod Point, they offer safe and intelligent charging with a proven reputation for delivering outstanding customer service.”

Commenting on the partnership, Erik Fairbairn, Founder and CEO of Pod Point said: “We’re delighted to be working with BMW Group Ireland as a preferred chargepoint supplier. BMW has won praise for having some of the best electric cars and is consistently lauded for efficiency and range, and we’re excited about the electric vehicles it will bring to market in the coming months.”
