KIA TEAMS WITH AMAZON TO PROVIDE ONE-STOP HOME-CHARGING SOLUTIONS FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES
Offering Makes Home-Charging Incredibly Easy
- Kia EV and PHEV customers can now order a home charger and installation through Amazon at www.amazon.com/ChargeMyKia
- Services backed by Amazon’s Happiness Guarantee
IRVINE, Calif., March 14, 2017 — Today Kia Motors America (KMA) began a new program with Amazon to provide plug-in vehicle customers with easy, one-stop shopping for a home charger and installation services using the same easy digital Amazon shopping experience they have come to love.
Before they even bring home their new Soul EV, Niro EV1, Niro PHEV or Optima PHEV, customers can visit www.amazon.com/ChargeMyKia to learn everything anyone needs to know about choosing a charger, having it installed, and charging at home. At the website, they will find recommended Level 2 or 240-volt charging units selected by Kia, information about EV home charging installation and helpful reviews from other Amazon customers. And they can see upfront pricing for electrical services and schedule a licensed electrician to install an EV charger and a 240-volt outlet if needed. Amazon’s Happiness Guarantee backs all home charging installation services, so customers know it will be done to their satisfaction and they can rest assured that their vehicle is supported by Kia’s excellent warranty2.
“Home-charging can’t get any easier than this,” says Orth Hedrick, executive director of Car Planning and Telematics, KMA. “Being able to order a Level 2 charger and installation through Amazon further demystifies and simplifies the experience for new Kia EV and PHEV owners. It’s just another example of how we’re constantly striving to provide the very best vehicles and customer experience.”
