...of your car, that is! Make the most of FREE EV charging points at Union Square

Did you know that Union Square has installed modern electric vehicle charging points?  They can be found on the left as you drive into level 1 of our multi-storey car park and are completely free to use!  • 3.7kW fast charging up to 50kW Rapid Charging speeds available • Mobile App enabled And what are the main advantages of an electric vehicle? ✅ Lower running cost: A full charge in a pure electric vehicle will give a typical range of 100 miles and will cost £2 to £4. Driving 100 miles in a petrol or diesel car will cost around £13 to £16 in fuel, which is around four times the cost of the electric car. The cost savings will be greatest when owners have access to an off-peak overnight electricity tariff. ✅ Lower maintenance cost: There are fewer mechanical components in an electric vehicle when compared with conventional vehicles, which often results in lower servicing and maintenance costs. ✅ UK Government Grants are available for purchase: applied directly at dealerships, a discount of 35% (up to a maximum of £3,500) of the price of a new EV is currently available. For electric vans, it’s 20% (up to a maximum of £8,000). For more info, visit the UK Government Website ✅ Ultra-low emissions: EVs could realise a 40% reduction in CO2 compared to the average family- sized petrol car over a full life cycle (SMMT Electric Car Guide, 2011). As more electricity is generated from renewable sources, these savings will increase further.
