Will a home EV charger do all cars?

I am interested in buying the Peugeot 508 PHEV. My question is, if in future I change to another make (e.g. Volkswagen), can I use the same home charger system that I plan to install with the SEAI grant? I travel 100km (up and down to work) so I think I have to charge it daily.

Hi Ruban,

Yes, you can. Pretty much all of the home charging points use the standard Type 2 connector, so that will work with any car. Even if you buy a brand-specific charging point, it’ll work with any make or model.
