Lloyds Banking Group has partnered with Zoom EV to help simplify the switch to electric vehicles for its customers.
The package of benefits includes discounted access to industry-leading public charging networks, smart home charging units, EV home energy tariffs and EV accident management services.
Prospective EV owners getting finance online through Lloyds will receive a discounted year-long subscription to the Zoom EV package. Insurance giant Direct Line Group was also recently announced one of Zoom EV’s partners.
Zoom EV’s customers already benefit from discounted home charger installation from BP Pulse or EO, discounted public charging through Osprey Charging and discounted home energy tariffs through OVO Energy.
The bundle, which can be bought direct by EV owners or offered by dealerships in a white-label format – packaged as an additional benefit to customers delivered by the dealer – is being made available through a finance partner for the first time.
Greg Fairbotham, CEO at Zoom EV, said: “Having Lloyds Banking Group, one of the finance sector’s best known and biggest players, as one of our partners is a huge boost in our drive to towards greater electric vehicle uptake. The ability to offer a discounted solution to their customers getting online car finance is a great way to make more people feel comfortable about making the switch to electric.
“All the indicators show that EV adoption is expected to surge especially following COP26 with more and more governments beginning to introduce regulations and incentives. The fewer hurdles to mass EV embracement that we have to overcome, the better it will be for our planet and our health.”
