Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has announced a new charging service for its electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, such as the Jaguar I-Pace and plug-in hybrid Land Rover Discovery Sport. 

Provided by charging specialist Plugsurfing, JLR customers will gain easy access to over 300,000 charging points spanning 27 European countries, as well as facilities from 700 separate companies such as Osprey, Ionity and 

JLR says more network operators will be added to the network later this year.  

Existing and new owners will receive a welcome pack to the service, including a Jaguar or Land Rover charging key which simply needs to be tapped at any one of the network’s points to initiate a charge. Access can also be granted through the Jaguar Charging or Land Rover Charging app - available on iPhone and Android. 

Since the prospect of charging a car away from home can still feel daunting for motorists, the service aims to remedy this by centralising the operators available, making it easier to select a charge point and pay for the facilities all in one place. 

There is a Pay-As-You-Go option, where charging sessions cost the current variable rate at each charger, as well as two monthly tariffs - Gold and Platinum. 

Gold, priced at £4.46 per month, provides fixed prices for charging, differing depending on the speed of the charger. The Platinum Tariff, priced at £8.50 per month including VAT, reduces the fixed rates, making it suitable for drivers that are regularly charging away from home.

Rawdon Glover, Jaguar Land Rover UK MD, said: “This is a significant step forward for us and our customers as we move closer to our all-electric future. 

“Creating simplicity and convenience throughout the EV ownership experience is a key objective and, until now, we have been impacted by a compromised public charging infrastructure. 

“With our new Jaguar Charging and Land Rover Charging services, we can serve our fleet and business customers with valuable management tools, and enhance the charging process by making it more simple and convenient for drivers throughout the UK and across Europe.” 

The announcement comes ahead of plans to premiere a fully electric Range Rover and Range Rover Sport by 2024. The  new Range Rover is already available as a plug-in hybrid, which is claimed to produce CO2 emissions of 18g/km while providing 70 miles of EV range. Plug-in hybrid versions of the Range Rover Velar, Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport and Defender are also available in the firm’s range. 

The full list of countries which use Plugsurfing are as follows: 

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Macedonia, Albania and Croatia.
