ScottishPower Unveils UK's First End-To-End Electric Vehicle Package

Construction News Image
ScottishPower has unveiled the UK's first end-to-end package electric vehicle ownership.

Keith Anderson, ScottishPower CEO, said: "We have moved on from fossil fuels to concentrate on clean renewables and today we announce the UK’s first end to end electric vehicle package that is 100% green. After removing carbon from how we generate electricity we believe the decarbonisation of the UK’s transport system has to be next.

"This means industry and Government working together to build the infrastructure so we can charge electric vehicles as well as building clean and cheap renewables to bring down the cost of motoring.

"The UK needs to decarbonise transport faster and we have to make the switch to electric vehicles simpler."

In another UK-first, ScottishPower has agreed an unique link-up with the major car retailer Arnold Clark allowing buyers to purchase or lease an EV of their choice, book a home charging point installation and sign up to an exclusive 100% renewable electricity tariff as part of the same package.

As part of the same easy process, customers will receive the UK's smallest fast charging point as well as having access to the ScottishPower App to facilitate smart charging. This will ultimately allow vehicle charging to be remotely scheduled via a smart phone to start/stop charging at a time that suits day or night, allowing electric vehicle owners to take advantage of cheaper unit rates at off peak times. No other utility in the market currently offers users this comprehensive app experience.
