A York car retailer is making it easier for electric vehicle drivers to charge their cars this spring.

Cars available from Ray Chapman Motors York, on Whiterose Close, now have access to a network of thousands of different charging points across the UK and beyond, following a partnership between Volvo Cars and Digital Charging Solutions, one of Europe’s largest electromobility providers.

York’s Volvo drivers will find a host of new and convenient features designed to make accessing and paying for public charging simpler – all accessible through the Volvo Cars app.

For drivers looking to go beyond York and the UK, the app is able to access more than 590,000 public chargers across 30 European countries, meaning road trips abroad and visits to family for the summer season will be much easier.

Among the new features in the app is a ‘Plug & Charge’ function, compatible with Volvo Cars’ forthcoming flagship, the fully electric EX90. The feature eliminates complex transactions, providing a hassle-free charging experience.

A remote charging control also allows customers greater flexibility and control, enabling drivers to remotely start and stop charging sessions through the app while going about their weekly chores.
