British Gas-owner Centrica is to introduce a dedicated home charging installation service as well as electrified vehicle tariffs to UK Ford customers with electric vehicles.
Upcoming Ford all-electric models include a Transit in 2021 and Centrica says it will also make its installation service available to support Ford’s dealership networks in the UK and Ireland.
