To celebrate the launch of the new, all-electric Honda e, Honda has teamed up with SSE Airtricity and Sheils Motor Group to make the transition to driving electric hassle free.
The partnership offers all eligible customers of the Honda e the installation of a free home charging system. Customers simply check their SEAI grant eligibility, and SSE Airtricity takes care of the rest. The offer is available across the five Honda e dealerships nationwide, one of which is Sheils Motor Group Galway.
At the launch of the Honda e, John Saunders, sales and marketing director for Universal Honda Ltd, said that with the greater focus on environmental issues, such as climate change, Honda's customers were seeking cleaner mobility and energy choices in Ireland.
"The launch of the Honda e represents our commitment to reflecting this change as we transition towards Honda’s 2022 goal, where our entire model range will be electrified. Therefore, we are delighted to be partnering with SSE Airtricity which prides itself on providing 100 per cent green energy. Together we are helping to improve our environment.
"Under this partnership all eligible Honda e customers will receive a free home charging system from SSE Airtricity making the transition to owning an electric car as easy as possible. We all have a part to play in securing our futures and choosing how to power your home or car can make that happen”.
SSE Airtricity Energy Services' head of business development Will O’Shaughnessy said SSE Airtricity and Honda shared the same goals in achieving green ambitions.
"Honda’s commitment to carbon neutral motoring is truly commendable. As Ireland’s largest provider of 100 per cent green energy and energy related services, this partnership is another important milestone in supporting customers and motorists on their journey to a net zero future.”
