Kia and OVO Energy share a close synergy with both companies having a strong green ethic towards their future developments. Kia has a 'Plan S', which aims at the company having 11 dedicated EV models in their portfolio by 2025, including passenger vehicles, SUVs and MPVs as well as developing powertrains and technologies. Future plans also encompass further electrification and mobility services as well as connectivity and autonomy.
“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” said Lucy Allberry, Regional Business Sales Manager at Kia Motors.
OVO Energy has signed up to EV100 and committed to an all-electric fleet by 2030. OVO has already set progressive goals, 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.
