What is Hive Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging?
Hive EV Charging includes a smart home charger with a British Gas backed warranty, and gives you complete control of your charging from the Hive app.
Trusted installation by British Gas
Our friends at British Gas have one of the largest networks of EV charger installers in the country. Their expert engineer will get everything set up safely for you and answer any questions.
Take control. Save money.
Hive EV Charging cleverly syncs with your energy tariff via the easy-to-use Hive app. So just plug your car in and it'll automatically charge up when your electricity's at its cheapest. And if you switch to the new Electric Driver tariff from our friends at British Gas – you could save even more.

Smart. Simple. Effective.
