Celebrating our awards

At Octopus Electric Vehicles, we’re proud to have been recognised by some of the industry's leading organisations and publications for our commitment to sustainability, excellent customer service, outstanding technology and innovation in the electric car industry., All of which goes towards making us the UK's go-to electric vehicle leasing specialist. Let's take a look at some of our awards over the last few years and celebrate together for an electric future!

Global Good Awards: Environmental Behaviour Change 2022

The Global Good Awards recognises purpose driven companies that focus on sustainability and social impact. This year we won Bronze in the Global Good Awards in the Environmental Behaviour Change category for our game changing salary sacrifice scheme.

With transport contributing a third of all carbon emissions in the UK, we’re breaking down cost and awareness barriers to EV ownership, encouraging employees to change undesirable gas-guzzling journeys into clean ones.

Business Car Awards: Editors Choice 2021

Our extensive range of fully electric vehicles and full EV service, including maintenance, home charging installations, electric vehicle tariffs and expert tariff advice, has earned us the prestigious Editors Choice award in the Business Car Awards.

For over 20 years, the Business Car Awards have recognised excellence in the automotive industry through their annual awards so we were very pleased to be in such great company!

PEA: Electric Vehicles 2021

We’re passionate about reducing harmful emissions by increasing the number of electric vehicles on the road. It's what drives us to continue developing innovative solutions to help our customers make a positive impact.

Our passion and innovative approach has earned our CEO, Fiona Howarth, a PEA award, recognising our achievements in making it easy and affordable for employers to set up salary sacrifice schemes that help their staff to switch to electric driving.

Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards: Innovation in V2G 2021

We created Powerloop, the game changing Vehicle to Grid (V2G) project, to reinvent how our customers charge their electric vehicles at home. Powerloop allows drivers to store green energy at night in their electric car battery and returning to the grid at peak times to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

This revolutionary technology earned us the Innovation in the V2G category at the Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards (EVIEs). By using a smart charging system, we make it possible to make charging cheaper for electric vehicle drivers, minimise the impact on the grid and maximise charging capacity. Powerloop was even featured in an Amazon documentary about climate change.

Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards: Best Customer Proposition 2021

We were delighted to come away with two awards from the Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards, with and Octopus Energy also winning in the Best Customer Proposition category.

This award recognises those organisations that bring an impressive customer-facing proposition to the market. Winners are scored on their proposition's scope, innovative approaches, customer satisfaction, and the overall impact of their EV strategy.

Driving Electric Awards: Best EV Innovation 2020

We are on a mission to make driving an electric vehicle as easy as possible and launched Electroverse (formerly known as Electric Juice) in 2020 to let EV drivers use a single payment method for their charging, whether on the road, on their driveway or on the street.

We were immensely proud to be awarded Best EV Innovation by the Driving Electric Awards, which recognises the best tools and services that make transitioning to and living with an electric car easier.

We're pleased to have been nominated and recognised in so many categories by our peers, customers and more. At Octopus Electric Vehicles, we believe the future of energy is exciting and innovative.
