Peter Vardy Group has announced a partnership with Zoom EV, to provide customers with services to help simplify the switch to electric.

Customers who purchase a plug-in hybrid or fully electric car from a CARZ store, will gain access to a suite of discounts as part of Peter Vardy’s EV Benefits Bundle, as well as support from Zoom EV’s team.

Benefits include discounted access to public charging networks, smart home charging units, EV home energy tariffs and accident management services.

Ed Carpenter, director of electric vehicles at Peter Vardy, said: “We understand that transitioning from a conventional car to an EV can be a daunting experience for some motorists and our teams are often faced with questions around charging an electric car.

“With Zoom EV’s support, the Peter Vardy EV Benefits Bundle will mitigate these concerns, providing our customers with bespoke services to make their EV ownership experience enjoyable and hassle-free.

“As the climate crisis continues to become more apparent, we are proud to be encouraging EV use in the UK and excited to be on this electric journey with Zoom EV.”

The Scottish AM100 car retail group delivered a 47.8% increase in profit before tax in a COVID-19 impacted 2020, despite a group-wide focus on “giving back” during the financial period.

The group was also the winner of the AM Awards 2021 Best Online Customer Experience and Community Hero award.

Greg Fairbotham, chief executive officer at Zoom EV, said: "Our concierge-style service gives customers reassurance and a helping hand as they transition to electric.

“Peter Vardy is proactively driving of the adoption of electric vehicles across Scotland, and the EV Benefits Bundle is a fantastic way to encourage drivers to make the decision to go electric."
