    Installing a home wall box

    The location of your home wall box will depend on the position of your home fuse box or meter and how you park your car. Most installations are eligible for standard installation however, in some cases groundworks and additional upgrades may be required. Most UK homes have single-phased power, which enables a 7kW wall box to be installed, while larger homes with 3-phase power may be able to host a higher-powered wall box. Pod Point offer a free consultation over the phone to find out if your home is suitable for a wall box.

    What if Pod Point can’t install a home wall box?

    Sometimes, a home wall box isn’t suitable for your home, because wiring is unfit or because you don’t have off-street parking, for example. In these cases, we recommend you contact your local council, who may be able to install a charge point on your street. You can find a nearby charger using the Zap-Map app.

The discounted £599 wall box included in the offer is a 7kW Pod Point Solo wallbox with standard installation only.

Standard installation is subject to survey. You will have the option to choose between a universal socket or tethered unit. Supply, installation and maintenance of the wall box will be subject to a separate contract between the customer and Pod Point. Neither Audi UK nor the Audi Centre can accept any responsibility in connection with that contract and any customer queries or claims must be directed to Pod Point.

New customers to Octopus Energy who purchase an Audi electric vehicle and who set up an account for gas and/or electricity who sign up via the referral link provided by Audi UK will be eligible for free miles in the form of £45 credit per fuel type on their energy account. To receive £90 credit, customers must switch both fuels to Octopus Energy. If only one account is switched, the customer will receive £45 credit. The credit shall be applied once the account is on supply and the first direct debit payment has been taken. If you qualify for more than one marketing incentive, Octopus reserves the right to give you just one incentive. To benefit from the Octopus Go tariff, the customer must have a SMETS2 smart meter or a SecureTM branded SMETS1 meter that they have agreed to let Octopus receive half-hourly consumption data from. There are some instances where a smart meter installation is not possible, for example remote areas with poor mobile signal. Where smart meter installation is not possible, customers can sign up to an Octopus standard tariff and still receive the £45 credit per fuel type. For the Q4 e-tron SUV 40 S line, at Octopus' Go tariff off-peak rate (7.5 p/kWh), £90 credit is equivalent to up to 4,500 miles. This is based on a usable battery capacity of 76.6 kWh and WLTP range of 308 miles giving an efficiency average of 0.25 kWh/mile. Efficiency differs depending on multiple variables, such as driving conditions and vehicle configuration. If the vehicle is not charged during the off-peak window £90 credit is equivalent to approximately 1100 miles based on the peak electricity price of 30.73/kWh. Existing Octopus Energy customers who purchase an electric vehicle from Audi can still avail this offer and should contact Octopus Energy directly on evoffers@octopus.energy to request a switch and/or add credit to their account. Existing customers must not have claimed other Octopus joining rewards to be eligible. Audi UK reserves the right to withdraw the offer without notice. Information correct as of January 2022.
