Ampol to provide benefits to Volkswagen EV drivers

Ampol and Volkswagen have struck a deal that will see Volkswagen EV customers receive deals both at home and on the road.

The agreement will mean Volkswagen customers gain access to Ampol’s AmpCharge home EV charging offer and discounts at its public EV charging stations nationwide.

Brent Merrick, Ampol Executive General Manager, Commercial Fuels and Energy, said they’re proud to partner with Volkswagen Australia and excited to work alongside them to provide charging infrastructure for the rollout of their EV range of vehicles.

“This collaboration with Volkswagen Australia represents another step forward in our continuing e-mobility strategy which is designed to provide a diverse and comprehensive charging network to power customer journeys in the home, forecourt or locations where they need to charge.”

Volkswagen ID. customers will receive discounted Ampol public EV charging rates for the first 12 months of ownership, with rates to be determined closer to the ID. electric vehicle range launch. Volkswagen will then share dealer and customer insights to inform key locations in Ampol’s fast-charging rollout.

Ampol will also allow Volkswagen ID. customers to colour-code their AmpCharge home charger to their ID. vehicle, provided with a nationwide installation service and five-year warranty. 

Michal Szaniecki, Director of Volkswagen Passenger Vehicles, said the agreement was absolutely crucial to Volkswagen’s stated intention for its Australian EV sales to surpass those of conventional vehicles by 2028.

“Two giants of personal mobility are helping more Australians transition to lower emissions vehicle ownership more quickly, making seamless their transition to e-mobility.

“Eighty per cent of charging in urban areas will be done at home, while we are supporting the growing Ampol network on the open road, so this association literally empowers our customers wherever they live around this great country.”

Volkswagen will announce the rates for Ampol public vehicle charging, ahead of the ID. range rollout commencing from July/August 2024.
