Frequently asked questions

We're offering eight of the best electric cars with the latest technology, offering great value for money. Unfortunately if you want a car that's not on this list, we can't offer it right now.

The latest EVs - What cars can I get?

Pay to drive, not own - How does a lease work?

With Intelligent EV, you’re getting what’s known in the leasing world as a Personal Contract Hire lease. This means you pay a fixed monthly price in return for a brand new EV. At the end of the lease, you hand the car back to us.

Pay to drive, not own - What is the upfront payment?

The upfront payment is equivalent to 3 times the monthly price of your lease.  It isn't a deposit and instead replaces your first monthly payment. After we take your upfront payment, you’ll pay your monthly rental from month two until the lease ends. The monthly payment amounts are calculated after your upfront payment is taken off, and so by paying the upfront payment, your monthly payments are lower. 

Intelligent EV by Octopus: the smartest way to get an electric car.

It's not just the car that counts

Pay to drive, not own - Can I keep the car at the end? 

With Intelligent EV you’ll give the car back at the end of the lease as it’s a hire plan, agreed for a certain period of time. Remember though, cars are assets that lose value, so this way you get to return the car, hassle free, at the end of your term.

Smart home charging - How do I charge my car at home?*

Octopus Energy has an EV specific energy tariff - Intelligent Octopus Go - that allows you to charge your car with the greenest, cheapest energy. In order to get onto this tariff, you’ll need to be an Octopus Energy customer, and have either a car or a charger that is compatible with Intelligent Octopus Go.

From our cars, the Tesla Model Y and Audi Q4 e-tron are both compatible with Intelligent Octopus Go, no matter what charger you have. For any other car model, you’ll need to install a charger at home that is compatible. We can help you pick and install your home EV charger with Intelligent Octopus Services. Learn more about that 
here.

As part of Intelligent EV, you’ll get an Electroverse card which (once you download the app) gives you one-tap access to hundreds of thousands of public chargers across the UK and Europe. Plus, you can plan charging routes to any destination and tailor the experience to your EV.

Smart public charging - How do I charge my car when I’m not at home?

Servicing & maintenance - What do I have to do myself?

Based on customer feedback, in Intelligent EV we've only included what we think is valuable for a smart EV driver. You’re covered for service, maintenance and repairs. This includes all servicing recommended by the car's manufacturer, any necessary MOTs, and any maintenance and repairs caused by typical wear and ageing.

There are a couple of extra things you might need that you can source competitively yourself:

1. You'll need to buy your own comprehensive motor insurance and keep that in place for the length of your lease term.

2. You'll need to cover the cost of any tyres that need replacing, and make sure you replace them with like-for-like tyres.

3. Breakdown cover is also not included in our package. (Although some car manufacturers cover breakdown as part of their warranty. You can check the manufacturer’s websites to confirm.)

4. You’ll also be liable for any fines that you may receive once you have the car, plus any excess mileage and damage above fair wear and tear when you return the car at the end.
