Electrify your New Year’s resolutions

EV Life |

A new year lies before us like an open road shimmering in the sun. Anything is possible. We can try anything. We can begin again. We can ask ourselves: What’s next? Why not?

While we appreciate traditional New Year’s resolutions focused on physical, emotional and financial health, this year we’re framing ours a little differently. As EV lovers, our EV lifestyles touch every aspect of our lives – including our hopes for the new year.

We invite you to join us in electrifying our intentions for the year ahead:

1. Go on more EV road trips and adventures

While we appreciate how our EVs power our daily lives – office commutes, shopping trips, school drop-offs – we want to say YES to more EV adventures this year. Nothing beats the fun of a road trip except an ELECTRIC road trip. And with rapidly increasing EV range, expansive charging networks and apps like ChargePoint and weather-resilient EV charging infrastructure, we’re ready to hit the road this winter.

2. Discover new fun places to charge

We all have our go-to EV charging spots. Maybe you like to charge at work or at the supermarket. While having a charging routine is essential, finding new spots to charge near fun activities and local businesses is a great way to get out and bring more adventure into your daily life. Perhaps there’s a place to charge near a new gourmet pastry shop. Perhaps that nail salon or work-out studio you’ve been meaning to try is right next to a ChargePoint station. Perhaps that trail you’ve been eyeing now has its very own charging spot. Expanding your local charging universe is an exciting way to expand and enjoy your world.

3. Explore sustainable incentives across your lifestyle

The new year is the perfect time to take advantage of sustainable incentives across your lifestyle. Explore tax credits and incentives for buying an EV and EV home charger and other energy efficient home upgrades ranging from solar panels to an electric stove. Across the EU, doing the right thing for the planet is also the right thing for your wallet.

4. Fully customise and explore your charging app’s best features

If you haven’t taken full advantage of your EV charging app, there’s no time like the present. Start with the basics:

  • Add your exact EV model
  • Update your filters to your preferences
  • Download the newest version of the app

Speaking of the newly refreshed ChargePoint driver app. You can now set up time-saving widgets on your phone to:

  • Find nearby stations
  • View charging status

Did we mention you can do all of this WITHOUT opening the app directly? You can also use your ChargePoint app with your Apple and Android smart watches, in-dash Apple and Android car displays and Siri. If you haven’t done this yet – well, you’re missing out and now’s the time to say yes.

5. Invest in an EV if you haven’t

Last but certainly not least, if you haven’t yet joined the EV revolution... welcome to this growing and mighty club. This is your sign to do it. You won’t regret it. Save thousands of pounds and do right by the people and planet you love. You can charge your EV wherever life takes you with the global ChargePoint network and driver app. It’s really that easy. We promise you’ll never look back.

What are your EV and EV charging hopes and dreams for the new year? What’s next? If not now, when?
