KiaCharge launches in UK

Kia Motors has launched its KiaCharge charging service in the UK giving owners of the brand’s BEVs and PHEVs access to 13,900 charge points across the UK – around 68 per cent of the public charging network.

KiaCharge provides access to several major charging networks, including BP pulse, Pod Point, IONITY, Source London, Chargepoint, NewMotion, Char-gy, and ESB. Several other networks, including certain regional services, are also available. There are plans to further expand KiaCharge coverage throughout 2021. Being able to access these networks via a single platform negates the need for drivers to sign up to separate accounts with multiple charging point operators.

The service also provides access to more than 1,300 ‘rapid’ connections, providing charging speeds above 50kW. Located in urban hubs and along major travel arteries, such chargers let Kia e-Niro and Soul EV drivers make the most of each vehicle’s rapid-charging capabilities.

Created in partnership with Digital Charging Solutions (DCS), the service also enables zero-emission continental travel. Thanks to eRoaming, drivers can access more than 178,000 additional charging points across 28 European countries without the need for additional contracts.

Kia BEV and PHEV owners can access KiaCharge via a smartphone app or radio-frequency identification (RFID) card.
