Kia EV Owners Can Charge Up Anywhere They Want as Long as They Live in California

This is the ultimate experience when it comes to convenience. Schedule an appointment with Kia and they’ll come to you

  • The charging program is an “on-demand concierge service.”

  • If you live in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Jose, Kia will come to you.

Nearly all manufacturers with an EV to sell will include some form of free charging. All of them involve a deal with an existing network where, for a given period of time, owners can charge their EVs for free. Kia EV owners have it even better – they’ll go to the car to charge it up.

Charging an EV is not exactly an inconvenience. Most owners plug in at home overnight and the following day, go about their business. Occasionally, things don’t go as planned and if you own a Kia EV and live in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Jose, via the Currently smartphone app, an appointment can be made, and a technician will come to the car and charge while you do what you do.

“The relationship with our customers does not end after delivery. In fact, that is just the beginning…partnering with Currently to offer complimentary EV charging connects to our larger ‘Plan S’ strategy and amplifies our commitment to overall EV adoption. We believe making charging easy also makes EV ownership easy,” said Greg Silvestri, Kia’s VP of Service Operations as reported by CarBuzz.

The service is available for a two-month period after delivery. Many other automakers offer 6- or 12 months, or more of free charging but the difference is that you have to drive the car to the station.

The program is expected to expand to other cities in the near future.
