OVO Energy expands electric fleet with 40 Kia e-Niro EVs

OVO Energy has agreed a fleet deal with Kia to supply 40 of its field force team with the all-electric Kia e-Niro.

Capable of 282 miles on a single charge, Nissan says that the Kia e-Niro is a perfect fit for OVO Energy. Lucy Allberry, regional business sales manager at Kia Motors, explained: “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.”

Business Specialist Dealer, Wessex Kia (Bristol) supplied the cars to OVO Energy, with the livery already professionally fitted by MediaFleet. 

Ben Guest, field operations director at OVO Energy, said: “We're excited to expand our Field Force team's fleet, with Kia's e-Niro electric vehicles, building on our commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions from our own operations by 2030.”

OVO Energy has signed up to EV100 and committed to an all-electric fleet by 2030 and is committed to achieve net zero carbon for its own operations and supply chain while halving its members’ carbon footprint by 2030, as a direct response to climate change.

With Kia’s ‘Plan S’ strategy, the carmaker aims to have 11 dedicated EV models by 2025, which will include passenger vehicles, SUVs and MPVs as well as developing world leading EV powertrains and technologies.

Future plans also encompass further electrification and mobility services as well as connectivity and autonomy.
