OVO Energy is providing 40 of its Field Force team with Kia e-Niro electric cars, keeping them mobile while cutting emissions.
The e-Niro was chosen for its official range of 282 miles while its zero emissions fits with OVO Energy’s eco commitments; the business has signed up to the EV100, committing an all-electric fleet by 2030.
OVO has also committed to achieve net zero carbon for its own operations and supply chain whilst halving its members’ carbon footprint by 2030, as a direct response to climate change.
Ben Guest, field operations director, OVO Energy, commented: “We’re excited to expand our Field Force team’s fleet, with Kia’s e-Niro electric vehicles, building on our commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions from our own operations by 2030.”
The new vehicles, supplied by Kia Business Specialist Dealer Wessex Kia of Bristol and liveried by MediaFleet, were also chosen for their spacious interior, practicality and high levels of standard specification.
Lucy Allberry, regional business sales manager at Kia Motors (UK), said: “At Kia we pride ourselves in finding the right car to fit individual business needs and having worked closely with the team at OVO Energy, we are pleased that they have chosen the e-Niro for their field team.”
