Iberdrola and Lexus are joining forces to achieve more sustainable mobility and move forward together in the electrification of transport. Iberdrola becomes the charging supplier for Lexus electric models in Spain, specifically for the new UX 300e, the first 100% electric vehicle from Lexus.
In collaboration with Iberdrola, Lexus will install a home charging point at no cost for users who purchase an electric vehicle. Thanks to this agreement with the energy company, the users will also enjoy a 3-year guarantee on both the installation and the Wallbox equipment.
In addition, those customers who are also Iberdrola customers or who decide to sign up with Iberdrola will benefit from six months free charging throughout Iberdrola's public network via its app. Specifically, the Electric Vehicle Plan, created especially for charging, will allow them to save on charging their vehicle with 100% renewable energy, without a bill and without a permanent contract.
Electric mobility and green recovery
Iberdrola continues to push its stance on transport electrification as part of its strategy for a decarbonised economy, as a key factor in reducing emissions and city pollution, as well as for a green recovery in the post-Covid world.
The company has unveiled its sustainable mobility plan, with an investment of €150 million, which will increase its roll-out of electric vehicle charging points over the coming years.
The initiative entails installing around 150,000 charge points in homes, companies and on the public road network in cities, as well as on the main motorways over the coming years. The commitment to deploying high-efficiency charging points will include the company installing ultra-rapid (350 kW) charging points every 200 kilometres, super-rapid points (150 kW) every 100 kilometres, and rapid (50 kW) points every 50 kilometres.
Iberdrola is aware of the need to boost electric mobility in Spain through coordinated, effective action involving the major players. The company has, therefore, now completed more than 40 infrastructure roll-out agreements with government departments, institutions, companies, service stations, and electric vehicle dealers and manufacturers.
The company has recently become the first Spanish business to subscribe to The Climate Group's EV100 initiative, with the aim of accelerating the transition towards electric vehicles with a commitment to electrify its entire fleet of vehicles enabling staff to charge their vehicles at its outlets in Spain and the United Kingdom by 2030.
