LV= launches Electrix

UK insurer LV= has launched ElectriX, “a one-stop shop offering drivers everything they need to get on the road with an electric car.”

The platform, launched in partnership with fleet management services company CBVC Vehicle Management and EV charging company Indra Renewable Technologies,  offers consumers the ability to lease a vehicle, buy a home charger, and get car insurance.

“Electric cars are our future and are rapidly gaining in popularity as being great cars to own and drive. The tide is turning in favor of zero tailpipe emission vehicles, with battery electric cars making up 16% of car sales during the first half of 2022, but we still have a long way to go. This is where ElectriX comes in. We want to take the hassle out of electric car ownership which is why we’re giving drivers who are thinking about making the switch access to useful information, products and services, demystifying some of the common jargon used and be a source of truth when it comes to zero tailpipe emission driving.” – Gill Nowell, head of EV Communications at ElectriX.

“We are absolutely delighted to be working together with ElectriX. Our ethos has always been to be at the forefront of the market and invest in the latest technology. The transition to electric vehicles is so critical and with our joint know-how we are thrilled that we can now offer consumers a really exciting and affordable pathway into electric cars. ElectriX not only makes things really easy for the customer but also provides access to a great range of new vehicles right now.” – Mike Manners, Managing Director of CBVC Vehicle Management.

“We are thrilled to begin this new partnership with ElectriX; it’s a great endorsement of our best-in-class end-to-end EV charging service, as well as our Smart PRO chargers’ reputation as the leading home charging product on the market. Indra’s technology sets high standards in sustainability, safety, ease of use and innovation and, with unbeaten reliability, our high-quality EV chargers are not only smart for customers but deliver maximum results for the grid and minimum impact on the environment. Our product will play a key role in demonstrating how easy and convenient EV ownership can be, which is a natural fit with the ElectriX customer-centric philosophy.” – Leighton King, chief commercial pfficer at Indra.
