Octopus Electric Vehicles and smart charger provider Ohme are partnering once again to offer a one-stop shop for future EV drivers.
The new EV package from Octopus enables drivers to switch to an EV with a single bundled package offering a new car, Ohme Home Pro smart charger, EV energy tariff for your home and 5000 miles of free charging.
Included in the package, drivers will be able to take advantage of six hours of cheap electricity rates every day on the Intelligent Octopus tariff to charge their cars. As Octopus Electric Vehicle’s only approved charger supplier, Ohme’s smart chargers can automatically adjust a car’s charging times according to your tariff, without needing to be pre-set for certain hours.
“Demand for electric cars is soaring, driven by low running costs and convenient charging at home and work and we’ve seen that drivers are looking for experts that can offer the full EV package to guide them through their journey,” said Fiona Howarth, CEO of Octopus Electric Vehicles. “With more EV models entering the market every month, and innovative tariffs like Intelligent Octopus making charging your car as easy as your phone, we only expect the transition to accelerate.”
With petrol and diesel prices now 27 per cent higher since the start of the year, the 5000 miles of free charging means that a typical UK driver could spend less than £35 in running costs for an EV using smart charging for their entire first year.
“This exciting new bundle makes it easy for motorists to make the switch to electric in a way that’s simple and hassle-free,” said Ohme CEO David Watson. “It enables drivers to not only charge their EVs in the most cost efficient way using off-peak tariffs and smart charging, but the 5000 miles of free charging means that they can effectively drive from London to Miami for nothing!”
