Mitsubishi UK and OVO Energy announce partnership
Mitsubishi Motors in the UK and OVO Energy announced a new partnership to help drive the decarbonisation of transport. Recognising that meeting the UK's net-zero carbon commitment by 2050 will require collaboration and partnerships across industry, the two businesses have teamed up to offer innovative green solutions to their respective customers.
OVO Energy has already set ambitious goals, committing in Plan Zero to decarbonise its own operations and halve its members' carbon footprint by 2030. It currently offers a one-stop zero carbon solution at home and on the road called EV Everywhere, with electric vehicle drivers able to choose from either a free Smart Charger or POLAR plus membership, with a two-year fixed energy plan with 100% green energy.
Mitsubishi Motors in the UK has been selling the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, the UK's and the world's best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle, since 2014 and believes that plug-in hybrid technology has an important role to play in the transition to decarbonised mobility. It provides drivers with their first experience of electric motoring while also greatly reducing road noise and improving air quality in urban areas when driving in electric mode.
Tom Pakenham, director of EVs, OVO Energy said: "Electrifying transport represents one of the biggest opportunities for like-minded businesses to work together and offer competitive greener solutions to their customers."
"We're delighted to partner with Mitsubishi Motors to explore innovative and exciting ways to benefit our customers and the environment."
