Lidl provides the largest network of electric vehicle chargers in the Irish supermarket sector, enabling customers to charge their electric vehicles free of charge whilst they shop. This initiative ensures all new suitable stores include two charging points for e-cars and over 40 charging points across the country.
“Electric vehicles are indispensable in addressing the major challenges of improving air quality and curbing the use of fossil fuels. With more and more customers shopping with us every week, we hope that the expansion of the network of public charge points will make electric vehicles more attractive to customers whilst further enhancing our customer experience. What’s great is they’re also free for our customers!
The electric vehicle charging point at our Drogheda store, for example, provides on average 100kms of free driving range per charge and is currently charging over 4000kms a week.”
Alan Barry, Director of Property and Central Services, Lidl Ireland
