Octopus EV expands lease car range

EV lease provider Octopus Electric Vehicles has agreed a deal to be the first lease provider in the UK to offer the Fisker Ocean SUV. 

The agreement, which covers an initial fleet of 200 Fisker vehicles, marks the start of a long-term partnership between Octopus and Fisker.

Octopus will make the SUV accessible to all its customers, offering the brand new EV on salary sacrifice, business contract hire and personal leasing. 

The Fisker Ocean Extreme, an all-electric SUV, is the first model launched by Fisker in the UK, and has a range of up to 440 miles, making trips from London to Glasgow possible with just one charge. It is the latest EV model to be offered by Octopus EV, which now has more than 80 cars available, and currently works with 3,900 businesses.

Fisker drivers will be able to access Octopus Energy’s Intelligent Octopus Go tariff, which guarantees customers six hours of off-peak charging at 7.5p per kWh each day.

Customers choose the time and amount of charge they want their car back, and Octopus’ tech platform seamlessly charges when it’s best for the grid. An average driver can save up to £600 a year on charging costs compared to a standard variable tariff, it claims.

Oliver Boots, Chief Commercial Officer at Octopus Electric Vehicles, said: “The U.S. has a long, proud automotive history and so it’s fantastic to see new entrants joining the electric revolution from across the pond. Each new manufacturer and model of electric cars gives drivers more choice, helps drive down costs and gets us closer to making the switch to having fully electric roads.

“We’ve seen a wonderful response to the Fisker Ocean in test driving, and we’re thrilled to be able to unlock savings for drivers through salary sacrifice.”

Fisker Inc Chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker at Fisker, said: “I am looking forward to seeing more and more UK customers using the leasing opportunity to experience the Ocean’s unique design including sustainable materials, best-in-class range and innovative technical features such as SolarSky, California mode and a large touchscreen that can also be in horizontal Hollywood mode.”
