Zoom launches EV exclusive insurance
Greater Manchester start-up Zoom, has launched what it claims is the UK's first car insurance aimed exclusively at electric vehicle (EV) owners, following support from GC Business Growth Hub.
This latest service, launched in partnership with Think Insurance, offers specific coverage for electric vehicles, is delivered by a specialist team and provides benefits specifically geared towards the EV driver.
Zoom intends to capitalise on the growth in the EV market through providing key services to individuals and businesses that make transitioning to an EV easier and more cost effective. The first raft of benefits includes preferential rates on smart home charging units and green energy tariffs, free access to one of Europe's largest charging networks and reduced rates on parking nationwide. Zoom is also planning to launch a car sharing app in the near future and is currently running pilots with councils and businesses.
Zoom Founder and CEO Greg Fairbotham said, 'The ongoing support we have had from the Hub has been incredibly useful. It has reinforced the confidence we have that the product we are launching is truly unique.
'During our journey into electric mobility, we identified through speaking to people that insurance was behind the curve when it came to EVs, so we set about improving the customer experience and incentivising people to choose better vehicles through including real green benefits.'
