Ohme has announced it will partner with Motability Operations, who provide a range of cars, wheelchair accessible vehicles, scooters and powered wheelchairs, to become the official electric vehicle (EV) charger provider for customers on the Motability scheme.
The collaboration is designed to make the switch to driving an electric car easier for disabled people through reliable, personal emobility. Ohme, who are the UK’s multi-award-winning smart home charger provider, will provide its unique technology with its Home Pro smart charger.
This will enable customers on the Motability Scheme to save money when charging by enabling them to pre-set their charging periods when prices are lower, such as in the evening, and also when renewable energy generation is at its highest.
Andrew Miller, Motability Operations, said: “Our customers have over 600,000 cars on the road in the UK. To make the transition to electric as easy as possible for our customers we have to find practical and affordable ways for them to charge their vehicles and help to reduce anxiety over range.”
The Motability Scheme provides mobility to over 640,000 customers who exchange their higher rate mobility allowance to lease a new vehicle. Motability Operations is the largest fleet operator in the UK and this collaboration comes at a time when Ohme’s Home Pro smart charger, with its digital LCD screen, is proving popular with personal and business drivers alike.
David Watson, Ohme CEO, said: “Here at Ohme, we are delighted to announce this partnership with Motability Operations and are looking forward to helping their customers in their transition to electric vehicles.
“Our Home Pro is the best EV smart charger on the market and can help to reduce charging costs and CO2 by up to 70 percent compared to standard charging, so we are looking forward to helping Motability customers realise those savings.”
This partnership comes just after Ohme was named the Best Electric Charging Point Provider by Business Motoring and also awarded for its Innovation in Electric Vehicles by Fleet World. Both of these awards follow Auto Express magazine’s 2022 Driver Power survey where readers voted Ohme as number one for customer service.
