Rome, May 12th, 2021 - Technology, energy and services are the pillars on which Renault has chosen to base its evolution into the age of modernity. Renault has been at the forefront of the automotive transition to electric technology for more than ten years and is consolidating this path in collaboration with Enel X, the Enel Group's global business line that provides services to accelerate innovation and drive the energy transition.
"Renault E-charge Home" is here: the all-inclusive, integrated charging solutions package, developed in partnership with Enel X to make home charging safe and easy. The new solutions are available as accessories in Renault’s electric range, offering an integrated customer experience when purchasing a vehicle at the dealership: tailor-made solutions, cost included in the vehicle financing plan and support during all stages of the customer experience.
"We are very pleased to have signed this agreement with Renault to guarantee people a convenient and safe home charging experience," said Augusto Raggi, Head of Enel X Italia. "Accelerating the transition towards electric mobility is one of Enel X's objectives. In 2017, we started an ambitious plan to build a widespread and reliable network of public charging points across the country. We have also focused on developing electric vehicle charging for the private sector, with our innovative JuiceBoxes and agreements with leading car manufacturers.”
"For over ten years, Renault has been committed to making the transition to electric mobility an innovative choice in terms of technology, environmental responsibility, and the ease of purchasing and servicing,” commented Eric Pasquier, Managing Director Renault Brand Italy & Country Head Italy. "Now we want to evolve the private charging solutions that we offer our customers by designing integrated solutions with our partner, Enel X, that include personalised advice and services for an intuitive, effortless shopping and electric driving experience."
With Renault E-Charge Home, customers can choose from three different ready-made packages, which vary according to the power of the Enel X JuiceBox Pro Cellular: "E-Charge Home 3" with a 3.7 kW JuiceBox, "E-Charge Home 7" with a 7.4 kW JuiceBox and "E-Charge Home 22" with a 22 kW JuiceBox. The Enel X JuiceBox Pro Cellular is the smart home charging station featuring dynamic power regulation to avoid overloading of the electricity supply and to enable smart charging. Using WI-FI and Bluetooth connections, you can schedule and monitor charging operations remotely with the Enel X JuicePass app. The E-Charge Home solutions also include many services designed by Enel X to assist the customer at all stages of the customer journey: a home visit to check the suitability of the electrical system and the electricity supply, advice on any necessary adjustments, contractual power increases and condominium approvals; installation of the JuiceBox and connection to the electricity meter; remote technical assistance through a dedicated Contact Center; a 2-year warranty and extraordinary maintenance. The "E-Charge Home" solutions are compatible with all the electric and plug-in hybrid models in the Renault E-TECH range: Twingo E-Tech Electric, Zoe E-Tech Electric, Kangoo E-Tech Electric, Master E-Tech Electric, Captur E-Tech Plug-in Hybrid and Mégane E-Tech Plug-in Hybrid.
As an example, the Renault Zoe can be fully charged overnight with a 7.4 kW JuiceBox and in 3 hours with a 22 kW JuiceBox. The Renault Twingo Electric recharges in 4 hours with the 7.4 kW JuiceBox and 1.5 hours with the 22 kW JuiceBox. To mark the launch of "E-Charge", customers will receive an exclusive offer with the vehicle at the heart of the 100% electric range: the Renault Zoe E-Tech Electric.
Buy a Renault Zoe by 30 June and get the "E-Charge Home 7" (JuiceBox Pro Cellular by Enel X with 7.4 kW, including inspection, standard installation, remote technical assistance, two years warranty and extraordinary maintenance) for 600 euros, including VAT. People who do not have a garage can benefit from the "E-Charge Street 7" offer, a voucher for 695 kWh of energy (corresponding to about 4,000 km) for public recharging, which can be used with Enel X's JuicePass app or a dedicated card.
