Lookers Motor Group has confirmed a partnership with clean energy brand Egg to provide and install electric vehicle charging infrastructure across its dealership network.
Egg will be Lookers’ exclusive supplier of EV charging equipment and services, including installation, service and maintenance on a variety of chargers through from fast 7 kWh AC units to rapid 150 kWh DC chargers.
Lookers is one of the UK’s leading motor retail and aftersales service groups, with a network of franchised dealerships across the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. Its dealerships represent 35 manufacturers across a spectrum of Premier and Volume brands which produce some of the UK’s top selling EV models.
Duncan McPhee, Lookers’ Chief Operations Director, said:
“Our partnership with Egg underlines our commitment to supporting customers make a seamless, confident transition towards an all-electric, sustainable driving future which is backed by the best advice and expertise and unrivalled choice and value – and underpinned by world class, customer-ready EV infrastructure available right across our network.”
“Lookers recognises the value of investing in EV infrastructure to future-proof its business,” added Gareth Greppellini, Commercial, Marketing and Sales Director of Egg. “As well as keeping stock powered up, on-site EV chargers allow vendors to demonstrate charging in action and highlight the features of various models. For customers buying their first EV, understanding the practicalities of keeping that vehicle running are just as important as parameters like capacity, comfort and speed.”
The framework of this partnership sets Lookers on the path to delivering electrification infrastructure across its franchise dealers, with enterprise grade charging equipment, service and maintenance.
Egg was launched in February 2022 and provides sustainable energy solutions including EV chargepoints, solar panels and storage for domestic and business use. Accolades for Egg include the Impact 50 Award by Hyer.co, Best New Product or Service (Domestic) at the EVIE Awards (October 2022) and Residential Solar and Storage Project of the Year at the Solar & Storage Live Awards (November 2021).

Charging an electric car at home
Having an at home charging point for your electric car is essential as it's often the easiest and most cost-effective way to charge. Fitted by a qualified installer, this compact weather-resistant unit is wall mounted for easy access and allows you to plug your car in once parked. There are grants available for home charging points and after this initial cost, you just pay for the electricity you use.
Home charging points are normally 3.7kW or 7kW, which means your car will charge faster than if it were plugged into a regular 2.3kW outlet with a three-pin plug.
