Jaguar Land Rover UK and Nissan Norway appoints Pod Point as preferred supplier

Erik Fairbairn CEO Pod Point

Jaguar Land Rover UK and Nissan have awarded Pod Point with a preferred supplier agreement, which will see retailers and customers equipped with charge points.

Pod Point can offer to install chargers at retailers and customers’ homes for both the new full battery all electric Jaguar I-PACE and the Range Rover PHEV and Range Rover Sport PHEV plug-in hybrids.

Pod Point’s chief executive Erik Fairbairn (pictured) said: “We’re delighted to be working with Jaguar Land Rover, particularly following the launch of the I-PACE, which was a very exciting moment for our industry.

"Likewise, working with high profile brands like Land Rover as they launch their first plug-in models is another landmark achievement for Pod Point.”

As well as providing home and workplace charging, Pod Point runs one of the UK’s largest free public charging networks and EV drivers can charge for free at 90% of Pod Point’s 2,500 public chargepoints

Pod Point has recently been appointed by Nissan Norway as a preferred supplier for three years, expanding its presence in the country. It has been an official supplier to Nissan UK since 2015 and has been working with Alliance Partner Renault Norway since 2014, installing 6,000 units to date.

Fairbairn said: “We already have a great relationship with Nissan in the UK and we’re delighted to expand our relationship with our new partnership in Norway.

“Of course, Norway is very much leading the way when it comes to EVs and everything we learn from this market is what we expect to see in the UK within the next five years.”
