Lidl Pricing Update | FAQs
Posted by Roseanne: Oct 01, 2019 • 2 min read
Update: As of 15 March 2021, the price for using Lidl’s 22kW and 50kW chargepoints is 25p/kWh.
For the long term sustainability of the network and to ensure future expansion, Lidl is introducing a new tariff of 23p/kWh on all rapid chargers.
The new tariff is effective from the 1st October 2019, at 3:30pm.
Lidl has invested a huge amount in supporting EV drivers, installing rapid chargers at more than 50 stores and powering more than 6.9 million EV miles. Its support for EV drivers will continue with more rapid chargers available at market leading prices for customers. That’s in addition to the excellent value it provides in-store.
Why is Lidl introducing pricing now?
Whilst rapid charging has been free to use for a limited period, Lidl will continue to offer the best value tariff on the market, and the new pricing will ensure its network remains sustainable as the number of EV drivers continues to increase. Over the long term, this means Lidl will be able to support more EV drivers, by rolling out to even more stores.
How much will it cost?
23p/kWh for rapid chargers only. 7kW units will remain free to use.
Are there any other restrictions?
All usual/signposted car park restrictions will apply.
How do I pay?
Payment can be made via the Pod Point App.
Is there a discount for shopping in-store?
There is no discount for shopping in-store, however, Lidl is offering a market-leading rate for rapid charging, in addition to the value it’s known for in-store.
Where are you installing new charge points? Will they all be rapids?
Lidl has big plans to continue its EV rollout and we’ll update you on new chargepoint locations as soon as we can - watch this space!
