We’ve Been Nominated for EV Advocate of the Year

We are proud to announce that we have been nominated by Automotive Management for the EV Advocate of the Year.

We find ourselves in esteemed company, with nominations for the likes of Volkswagen UK, Nissan UK, Devonshire Motor Company, and Luscombe’s – all of whom have been absolutely instrumental in bringing awareness of EVs to the forefront.

The AM Awards ceremony takes place on Thursday 2nd May at Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge in London.

Our journey so far

Our own journey to EV advocacy started in earnest in late 2015 when we collected the very first Tesla Model X. Driving it home from Solihull, we realised that this was a car that could seat 7 people in comfort, be as quick as any Porsche 911, and yet be almost completely silent.

This was the moment that sparked our electric mission.

Upon trying to encourage people to choose an electric car, we soon found that people were not engaging in the conversation as they were content with their ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) car.

Our challenge became how to convince them to transition from fossil fuel cars to the new world of electric mobility.

Continuing EV advocacy

We realised that there were so many questions and fears that people had which were stopping them from committing to this new technology – if we could just give them the opportunity to try it out, maybe they would be convinced.

We realised that if we could let people take an electric car for just a month, and include insurance, maintenance, and breakdown cover, simply leaving them to ‘charge and drive’ for a single monthly payment, this would be a huge opportunity to increase the uptake of electric cars.

To provide this seamless service for our customers, we had to spend a lot of time getting the important pieces of the puzzle lined up, including insurance, maintenance, and technology.

Despite launching in the depths of the Covid Lockdown, we’ve grown our fleet to hundreds of electric only cars, as well as growing our team with our HQ in Coventry and a hub in Glasgow.

Our refined online process now allows consumers and businesses to choose their car, choose the term, and book a delivery to their door!

Since we have added Salary Sacrifice which allows savings of 30-60% on the price of an electric car, business has continued to grow and attract attention from all areas.

The future

We’re enormously grateful to receive this nomination and to be placed into a category with businesses that have done so much to further EV exposure.

No matter the result, we’re incredibly excited to see what the future holds for us as a business and the EV industry as a whole.
