ONE year on from the start of their partnership, leading smart charging company Ohme and Motability Operations have now installed more than 5000 EV chargers for their Motability Scheme drivers.
Over the past twelve months, increasing numbers of drivers on the Motability Scheme have decided to make the switch to an electric vehicle. Ohme has been enabling those drivers to save money when charging by enabling Scheme customers to take advantage of off-peak electricity tariffs to help reduce their everyday running costs.
David Watson, Ohme Chief Executive, said: “Putting our customers at the heart of everything we do and building strong relationships are two of our core values, so we feel privileged to be helping the Motability Scheme customers with their move towards electric vehicles.
“Compared to traditional cars, electric vehicles can enable all drivers to enjoy greater mobility, freedom and independence as well as saving money with reduced running costs. Ohme is very happy to be part of enabling that journey alongside Motability Operations.”
Motability Operations is the largest fleet operator in the UK and its Scheme serves more than 650,000 customers. The number of its customers now choosing an EV continues to grow and the EV proportion of its fleet has more than tripled in the past year, as increasing amounts of those customers turn towards those greater freedoms that EV driving can bring.
Ohme’s Home Pro smart charger can connect with the national grid in real time and automatically adjust its charging for drivers to take advantage of all the times of low price charging with smart off-peak tariffs. Ohme also offers drivers the option to charge their car when renewable energy generation on the National Grid is at its highest, further lowering their CO2 impact.
Ohme is the official charger provider for the Volkswagen Group in the UK and has been named as the Best Electric Charging Point Provider by Business Motoring.
