All-inclusive electric car subscription service, Onto, and rapid charging network, InstaVolt, are today announcing a partnership offering all Onto customers free charging across the whole of the InstaVolt public charging network.
Onto currently has more than 2,000 customers and is the fastest-growing electric vehicle (EV) subscription company in the UK. Its partnership with InstaVolt will give its customers access, through an RFID card, to the UK’s favourite charging network at popular locations nationwide including on-site amenities at McDonald’s, KFC, Costa Coffee and Starbucks.
The partnership increases the number of rapid charging locations that Onto customers have access to in their subscription, combatting consumer fears around range anxiety.
The InstaVolt network has over 600 chargers nationwide and is capable of delivering up to 125kW charging speeds – adding hundreds of miles of range in half an hour. It will now be included within Onto customers’ monthly subscription, which starts from as little as £339.00 for a 1-month minimum contract, making recharging hassle-free. As well as the charging costs, the all-inclusive monthly payment covers the car, insurance, 1000 miles, breakdown cover, road tax and all manufacturers recommended servicing and maintenance.
Following the government’s decision last year to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030, the partnership is further progress towards a greener future by giving drivers more flexibility and convenience to make the electric switch radically simple.
InstaVolt Chief Executive Officer, Adrian Keen, said: “Our partnership will help to provide a reliable rapid charging network to Onto customers around the country. Many drivers are concerned about making the switch to electric vehicles because of a perception that there is a lack of public chargers, but this exciting and innovative EV subscription brand will help put future customers’ minds at ease.
“We are proud that drivers have rated us their favourite charging network on multiple occasions, highlighting the ease of use of the chargers and class-leading reliability. Our goal is to continually support the drive towards a greener and cleaner future, and so it makes sense that we should partner with Onto to help increase uptake in electric vehicles across the country among leaseholders as well as car owners.”
Onto CEO and co-founder, Rob Jolly, said,“We’re thrilled to be partnering with InstaVolt to offer our customers even more choice when it comes to charging on the go. The additional 600 rapid charging points will be hugely beneficial for our customers who tell us that being able to charge their car for free is a popular component of our all-inclusive subscription. Charging anxiety can be a real issue for drivers and so we’re focussed on making electric vehicles as accessible and affordable as possible.”
