Bristol-based energy company OVO Energy has expanded its EV fleet with Kia e-Niro electric cars.
As part of its wider commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions from its own operations by 2030, OVO has added 40 additional EVs to its field fleet.
The energy company said it selected Kia’s e-Niro due to its ability to travel 282 miles on a single charge, spacious interior, practicality and levels of standard specification.
Lucy Allberry, regional business sales manager at Kia Motors UK, said: “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.”
Kia said it shares a close synergy with OVO Energy as both companies have a strong green ethic towards their future developments.
Kia’s Plan S strategy will see the company aim to develop 11 dedicated EV models by 2025, including passenger vehicles, SUVs and MPVs, encompass further electrification and mobility services as well as connectivity and autonomy.
