Vanarama and OVO Energy have today launched an innovative new partnership that will put OVO Energy new and existing members in pole position for the best deals on electric car leasing and help them achieve unbeatably low EV running costs.
The ground-breaking arrangement between the UK’s biggest online vehicle leasing business and largest independent energy supplier will see new and existing OVO Energy members able to access the hottest electric vehicle leasing deals through an exclusive new partner site. But that’s not all. When leasing a new ‘Hot Offer’ EV, they will also qualify for a years’ free insurance (worth an average £538) and a fully installed EV home charger. Better still, OVO’s ingenious ‘Free Green Miles’ scheme, converts EV miles into a reduction in energy bills, meaning customers can save money on charging their vehicle and on their household energy.
Vanarama and OVO Energy believe that, taken together, the new scheme creates the UK’s best value and most affordable route to electric motoring. Andy Alderson, CEO and founder of Vanarama, said: “More and more motorists are looking to make the switch to electric motoring and we are determined to make it as easy and affordable as possible for them to do so.”
He added: “This new partnership with OVO is incredibly exciting and brings together a range of benefits to create an unbeatable offer that other brands can’t even come close to.”
From today, visitors to OVO’s website – www.ovoenergy.com – will find a new section offering a range of tools, information and impartial advice for those thinking about moving from petrol or diesel and into an electric car.
Members can then choose to be redirected to a co-branded partner site where they can access leasing deals on the latest EV models through Vanarama. Those leasing an EV through the site will automatically qualify for the years’ free insurance*, free charger installation while new and existing OVO members will also qualify for the ‘Free Green Miles’ tariff.
Chris Russell, Managing Director OVO Drive, OVO Energy said:
“The new partnership between OVO Energy and Vanarama creates another opportunity for drivers across the UK to reap the rewards from driving an electric vehicle. As a business we’ve set progressive goals to halve our members’ carbon footprint by 2030, as a direct response to the climate crisis. By rolling out innovative new propositions to our members to get into electric vehicles we’re unlocking the huge environmental opportunity that electric vehicles offer.”
