EVs made easy

A strategic partnership between Octopus Energy and Stellantis, one of the world’s largest car manufacturers, will encourage customers of Stellantis’ brands to make the switch to an EV, and benefit from lower running costs by switching to the UK’s fastest-growing green energy provider.

Six of the brands under the Stellantis umbrella – Peugeot, Citroen, Fiat, DS, Jeep and Alfa Romeo – will offer customers access to the Octopus EV bundle.

This includes the innovative smart charging tariff, Intelligent Octopus, which allows access to cheaper, greener charging overnight – optimised with the Ohme wallbox home charger, which is also part of the package. New customers will have the additional perk of an initial £25 off their bill. 

‘Transport still accounts for a massive chunk of global emissions, so switching away from old school petrol and diesel cars will be crucial for reaching net zero. 

‘Going electric is a win-win-win: cleaning up the air we breathe, decarbonising our roads and putting money back in people’s pockets. We are over the moon to be partnering with Stellantis to help make the process of going green as smooth as possible for their customers.’

Access to charging

Drivers will also have access to more than 330,000 chargers across Europe through Octopus’ charging roaming network, Electric Universe – making public charging easy with just one card, one bill and a straightforward app.

The offer will also be available to existing Octopus Energy customers who have already purchased an EV from one of the participating Stellantis brands.

Octopus also recently partnered with Vauxhall, among other brands, as it continues to build on its position as the energy supplier of choice for electric car manufacturers. 

‘Our partnership with Octopus Energy allows us to offer electric vehicle customers greater support and services to enjoy the freedom of driving an EV at home and on the road. We’re pleased to be continuing to provide drivers with access to charging in an affordable, efficient, and environmentally beneficial way with added ease.’

A tariff for EVs

Octopus Energy has been driving the UK’s transition to electric vehicles for more than three years.

Launched in June 2018, its revolutionary ‘Octopus Go’ tariff was the UK’s first ‘time of use’ tariff designed specifically for EV owners, offering four hours of cheap green electricity every night.

‘Intelligent Octopus’ builds on the success of ‘Octopus Go’, extending the cheaper nighttime rate to six hours while introducing the UK’s first smart charging solution for EVs, which optimises the car’s charging schedule to the very greenest and cheapest times.
