Independent car retailer FJ Chalke has partnered with electric vehicle benefits company Zoom EV to make the decision of buying an electric vehicle (EV) in its showrooms easier.
FJ Chalke, which was established in 1929 and has a series of showrooms across the south of England, will now offer Zoom EV’s unique EV Driver Benefits Bundle to its customers, which provides a range of services and discounts designed to ignite their electric car journey.
From the 9th September – World EV day – customers purchasing a new or used fully electric vehicle from the dealership, will receive a free 12-month Zoom EV Bundle, which gives access to benefits and discounts covering public charging networks, smart home charging units, EV home energy tariffs, parking and EV accident aftercare services.
In addition, FJ Chalke customers have the reassurance of the Zoom EV team helping throughout their transition when starting their EV journey.
FJ Chalke’s Managing Director, Steve Fowler, said: “The partnership with Zoom EV will give our customers an opportunity to be reassured when they are considering making the switch to an electric car. Knowing that customers have a support service from our electric specialists, but also the infrastructure in place to support any questions they may have once they are on the road, is invaluable.
“Our management team is always trying to find ways in which we can help reduce the amount of carbon emissions we generate as a business – generally, by choosing products which have a lower carbon impact. Our electric specialists are keen to discuss the various options available, helping our customers choose the right model to suit their lifestyle. They will assist with the range, how it’s charged, how their driving style can affect the performance and most importantly how it will reduce their impact on the environment, making an electric car a preferable option to petrol or diesel.
“Whether our customers are buying for business or pleasure, undecided on new or used, we can guarantee an electric car is the key to happy, clean affordable, low-cost motoring.”
Greg Fairbotham, Zoom EV’s CEO, added: “Electric vehicles are becoming more and more popular by the day but some people remain unsure about the technology or its usability. This confusion makes the customer buying experience absolutely critical as the country moves toward an emission-free road network.
“We will be working with FJ Chalke to ensure that their customers experience in transitioning to electric is seamless and provide them with what they need to run their EVs and save money, whether they’re at home or on the road. EVs are a new technology and it’s important that.
“This partnership will guide customers on their EV journey, remove barriers to EV ownership and lower the decision-making bar for many.”
Kia, Nissan and Fiat are all leading brands within the FJ Chalke portfolio that have fully electric models, with more coming to other brands in the near future.
