Birmingham NEC 9-11 October 2018: Octopus Electric Vehicles, the electric vehicle specialist, will be bringing its expertise in helping individuals and businesses transition to zero-carbon transportation to the UK Construction Show 2018 at the NEC, Birmingham.
*You can find Octopus Electric Vehicles on STANDS H132 and E612*
*Fiona Howarth, CEO Octopus Electric Vehicles, will also be speaking at the event*
On Stand H132 in the Energy Zone, the EV leasing and charging experts will be on hand with a Renault Zoe and example charge points on show, and also on the REA Feature Stand, demonstrating how electric vehicles and charge points form part of the smart house
of the future.
Octopus Electric Vehicles has great offers to buy or lease, and then run, the world's best electric vehicles, and handpicked charging points for homes, offices and convenient destinations such as hotels, gyms and retail sites that our trusted installers can install across the UK.
Octopus Electric Vehicles combines this with energy tariffs designed specifically for EV drivers with 100% renewable electricity at rates as low as 5p/kWh from Which?'s only recommended energy supplier Octopus Energy.
CEO Octopus Electric Vehicles, Fiona Howarth, said: “Octopus Electric Vehicles is delighted to be bringing our team of impartial experts, electric vehicles and charge points, to UK Construction Week 2018.
Electric Vehicles are coming faster than most people can imagine and together with the construction industry, we are leading this revolution from the front, putting charge points into new buildings and developments across the country - enabling the UK to transition a low carbon world.”
Commenting, Daniel Brown, Policy Manager at the Renewable Energy Association, said: “What’s exciting about electric vehicles is that it it’s not just about a new car model. EVs are also about a new and improved driving experience, new forms of energy supply, and new investment into low-carbon infrastructure. We are pleased to welcome Octopus EVs, a company that touches on many elements of this great transition, to this year’s UK Construction Week.”
EV drivers today are enjoying running costs of 1p/mile; a fraction of the cost of running even most efficient petrol & diesels (which are around 10p/mile, and sometimes much more). In addition, with as few as 20 moving parts in an EV compared to around 2,000 in an standard car, servicing and maintenance costs can be 30-40% lower.
EV drivers no longer need to detour to fill up as they just charge while doing things they love from shopping, working out or going the cinema. With the latest smart charging systems and the ever growing on-street charging network, they can even charge while they sleep; starting
each day with a full charge.
Octopus Electric Vehicles is helping homeowners and businesses across the UK take advantage of fantastic government incentives for EVs and charging at places convenient for their lives, including:
● £4,500 off many vehicles from the government plug-in car grant
● up to £500 off the installation of a charge point at home or work
● up to 40% off monthly car costs , by getting it on a salary sacrifice scheme - saving income tax and national insurance.
Octopus EV has done the leg work to pull it altogether, making it simple to make the switch and take advantage of all incentives. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk to us about what you need.
