Speed up charging of your Kia EV by upgrading your home charger to 240V.
Kia Motors America and Amazon have announced a partnership to sell and install home electric car charging stations.
The online marketplace giant have made online shopping quick and easy with their one-stop shopping experience.
By partnering with Amazon, Kia are looking to bring that same level of service to owners of plug-in vehicles.
Home chargers for Kia EV and PHEV models
If you own a Kia Soul EV, Niro EV, Niro PHEV or Optima PHEV, the first thing you should do is pay a visit to ChargeMyKia Amazon page to learn all you need to know about buying, installing and using your EV charger at home.
The page includes recommendations from Kia concerning which Level 2 or 240-volt charging unit works best for you. There are also tips on installation, as well as reviews from other Amazon customers.
Perhaps best of all, the website is home to upfront pricing for services, as well as a list of licensed electricians who can help you with installation, if needed.
All services offered in the Kia-Amazon partnership are backed by Amazon’s Happiness Guarantee. Between that and the amazing warranty offered by Kia, you can rest assured that you are in very good hands.
Keep it simple: 3 steps
The buying process is quite straightforward. Listed below are the 3 steps you need to follow.
1. Select the 240V charger you want.
It is worth noting that all Kia electric vehicles come equipped with a 120V charger. Upgrading to the 240V option means seeing a marked improvement in charging times.
2. Schedule an appointment.
Amazon offers a great selection of top-rated electricians in your area to help with installation. Each of these electricians are licensed and have gone through a background check, which is all part of the Amazon Happiness Guarantee.
3. Start charging your electric Kia car
Just like that, you are done. You will now have access to greater power and charging times, making it easier to keep your Kia EV fully charged at the start of each day
Amazon & electric vehicles?
Those of you who pay attention to the automobile media will not be surprised by this news, as Amazon have already stated how serious they are about getting into the business of home charging stations for electric cars.

Amazon has been selling electric vehicle charging stations for a long time. They now have over 100 products available.
