Save on your charging costs when you subscribe to e:PROGRESS intelligent charging
e:PROGRESS is a comprehensive and innovative home charging solution, which offers Honda e owners connected charger, advanced intelligent software and dynamic energy tariff to charge at the most cost-effective times.
The e:PROGRESS software sets a charging schedule to ensure the car is always adequately charged when it's needed based on the requirements of the owner, while optimising the use of low-price clean energy. Customers can change their charging requirements at any time through the e:PROGRESS app.
e:PROGRESS offers a seamless experience in setting up the service, guiding the customer through checking their eligibility online, switching to the dynamic tariff and subscribing to intelligent charging. Ordering and installation of the charger is carried out by British Gas, to ensure the highest-quality service nationwide, with ongoing after sales support.
Electricity is provided by Octopus Energy, with its UK-first dynamic tariff, Agile Octopus, a combined tariff for both the EV and home which allows customers access to lower prices during renewable-heavy, off-peak periods. The software selects the most cost-effective times to charge the Honda e based on the tariff, which changes price as often as every 30 minutes in response to fluctuations in wholesale energy prices. This gives customers an estimated annual saving in charging costs of up to £4001 per year compared to a standard flat tariff1, while Octopus Energy guarantees that 100% of its electricity comes from renewable sources.
The preferred connected charger for the service is the Honda Power Charger S+ (4G), which connects remotely to e:PROGRESS to schedule access to low-cost electricity. With a simple yet sophisticated design inspired by that of the Honda e, Honda Power Charger has been designed to create more value in the future with further intelligent charging services which interact with the grid.
As well as offering a unique set of benefits to customers, e:PROGRESS will support active grid management to help stabilise demand and to optimise the use of renewables. It also aligns with Honda's 2030 Vision, part of which outlines the company's ambition to create 'new value' by moving into areas other than mobility, including energy services.
Offered exclusively to Honda e customers, e:PROGRESS is available now in the UK. For further information on e:PROGRESS and to check eligibility please visit:
The savings shown are based on an average household energy consumption of 4,200 kWh per year plus the energy consumed by a Honda e travelling 8,000 miles per year (22 miles per day) with an efficiency of 4 miles/kWh, or 2,000 kWh. The monetary savings are calculated by comparing the cost of this energy when powered by Agile Octopus against a standard flat tariff with a rate of 17.4p/kWh and a standing charge of 25p/day. Tariff pricing for Agile Octopus is based on the past 12 months’ data (up to June 2021) for the London area. Vehicle charging costs are based on e:PROGRESS intelligent charging selecting the half-hourly periods with the lowest prices on the Agile Octopus tariff between 6pm and 6am each day. The vehicle charging rate is fixed at 6.6kW/h. Your savings will differ based on your household consumption, vehicle usage, driving style, and location. You need to be eligible for Agile Octopus to switch. ** Subject to availability/first 60 customers only - see terms and conditions. ↩
