- Wessex Garages supplied the cars to OVO Energy, with the cars leased through Zenith
- Wessex Garages are able to offer extended test drives to businesses

    Business Specialist Dealer Wessex Garages Kia Bristol has supplied 40 all-electric Kia e-Niro cars to OVO Energy for its Field Force. The livery was professionally fitted by MediaFleet.

    Capable of 282 miles on a single charge, the e-Niro is a perfect fit for OVO Energy’s Field Force, which was able to appraise an e-Niro thanks to an extended test drive from Wessex Kia (Bristol). Other key features that attracted the company to the award-winning electric car were its spacious interior, exceptional practicality, and outstanding levels of standard specification.

    The cars, which are leased via Zenith, will help OVO Energy reach its commitment to run an all-electric fleet by 2030. OVO has already set progressive goals, including signing up to EV100, 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.

    Ben Guest, Field Operations Director, OVO Energy commented: “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.”

    Tom Wherlock, Business Specialist at Wessex Kia, added: “It has been fantastic working with OVO Energy and helping the pioneering company achieve its go electric ambitions. This sets an example for other businesses too and with Kia’s exciting, practical and versatile range of electric and electrified cars, I’m confident we have something to suit every business need.”
