If you’re thinking about going green and making the switch to an EV what should you consider? Concerned about cost? Range anxiety? Many people feel they don’t know enough to make an informed choice about an electric vehicle or EV.
Going electric doesn’t have to be complicated. EV8 Switch helps you go green with confidence. Developed in the UK, the app is supported by NatWest and part-funded by the UK Space Agency through the European Space Agency.
EV8 Switch works best when EVs are compared against your existing vehicle. So once you’ve told us about your vehicle and you are registered, EV8 Switch will monitor and log your journeys to build up a picture of your driving behaviour and how you get around.
For EV8 Switch to provide more reliable results, you will need to collect 14 days of driving data to unlock personalised insights, advice and recommendations. After your first journey is recorded, The 14 Day Challenge begins!
Your driving data is used to calculate the real cost and environmental benefits of switching to an EV based on your individual needs and driver behaviour. EV8 Switch also highlights how often you would need to charge your EV and the location of chargepoints along your routes.
Our ‘Switchability Score’ indicates how suitable an EV would be for your needs. It’s real-time analysis of your driving behaviour helps you visualise how an EV could fit into your lifestyle and outlines the financial and CO2 savings you could achieve.
Our app makes it easy to find the right EV for your driving needs by providing bespoke electric vehicle recommendations based on your existing vehicle and the journey data you have logged.
With a dedicated support team on hand to help you throughout, learning more about how you could go green is easier than you think.
EV8 Switch is designed to help you discover if transitioning to an EV is right for your lifestyle and your driving behaviours.
• See if you could save money.
