Octopus Energy has announced a strategic partnership with Stellantis to encourage customers of Stellantis to make the switch to an EV, benefiting from lower running costs by switching to one of the fastest energy providers. 

Six of the brands under the Stellantis umbrella – Peugeot, Citroen, Fiat, DS, Jeep and Alfa Romeo – will offer customers access to the Octopus EV bundle.  

This will include innovative smart charging tariff, Intelligent Octopus which will allow access to cheaper greener charging overnight. Additionally, the Ohme Wallbox will be part of the package. New customers will have £25 off their bill. 

The company has said that drivers will have access to more than 330,000 chargers across Europe through Octopus’s charging roaming network, Electric Universe. This aims to make public charging easy with just one card, one bill and an app. 

This offer will be available to existing Octopus Energy customers who have already purchased an EV from one of the Stellantis brands.  

Rebecca Dibb-Simkin, Chief Product Officer at Octopus Energy, said: “Transport still accounts for a massive chunk of global emissions, so switching away from old school petrol and diesel cars will be crucial for reaching net zero. Going electric is a win-win-win: cleaning up the air we breathe, decarbonising our roads and putting money back in people’s pockets. We are over the moon to be partnering with Stellantis to help make the process of going green as smooth as possible for their customers.” 

The partnership is said to build on Octupus’ recent partnership with Vauxhall as it aims to build on its position as the energy supplier of choice for electric car manufacturers. 

Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Stellantis UK, said: “Our partnership with Octopus Energy allows us to offer electric vehicle customers greater support and services to enjoy the freedom of driving an EV at home and on the road. We’re pleased to be continuing to provide drivers with access to charging in an affordable, efficient, and environmentally beneficial way with added ease.”
