Polar is the UK’s largest electric vehicle charging network.
All Mercedes-Benz EQC customers get a free three-year subscription to Mercedes me Charge. It allows owners to access multiple networks through one Mercedes Me Charge card – and the EQC’s onboard navigation calculates routes including Mercedes me-accessible chargepoints.
Owners can also access nearby charging stations through the Mercedes me App, and pay for charges directly through Mercedes me. This saves fumbling with credit cards or multiple subscriptions.
Now, the service is even more useful with the addition of BP Chargemaster to the network.
The company is even offering an upgrade to Polar Plus membership, with six months free, which gives lower tariffs than the regular Polar service.
“With Mercedes me Charge, customers no longer need individual subscriptions to charging networks, and can now access many charge points via the vehicle’s head unit or the Mercedes me app,” said the firm’s UK head of product management Jason Allbutt.
The deal with BP Chargemaster extends the link between the two companies: the charging network is Mercedes-Benz choice partner for providing home charging wall boxes to new EV buyers.
