British Gas has unveiled its latest offering in smart home charging products with the launch of the Hive electric vehicle (EV) charger.

Developed in collaboration with the manufacturer EO Charging the charger, similar in size to an A5 notebook, aims to provide electric car owners with greater control and management over their vehicle charging while promoting cost savings and environmental benefits.
