Gett and Octopus Energy partner with aim to reduce costs for over 4,000 electric taxi drivers

Updated: Jan 25


Gett and Octopus Energy have announced a landmark industry partnership aimed at revolutionising electric vehicle (EV) charging for over 4,000 iconic electric taxis in London.


Starting today, this collaboration is set to offer a suite of benefits including charging discounts and credits, and reduced prices on home charging equipment for cab drivers on the Gett platform.

Octopus Energy’s award-winning EV charging platform, Octopus Electroverse, already a prominent player in the capital, is integrated with most charge point brands. This integration is as significant for taxi drivers who will now enjoy exclusive discounts at numerous Source London and MFG EV Power charge points across London.


Additionally, Octopus are simplifying the process of acquiring a home charger for Gett’s taxi drivers. This move includes the installation of chargers at drivers' homes, where they can then take advantage of Octopus’ EV smart tariff, Intelligent Octopus Go, for cost-effective charging. Customers on the tariff will further benefit from an extra 8% discount on all public charging costs on Electroverse.


This partnership is the latest in Gett’s series of driver incentives, which include vehicle maintenance discounts, monthly drop-in sessions, and lotteries, all designed to enhance the driving experience and support for their network of taxi drivers.

Matt Davies, Director of Octopus Electroverse, said: “We’re making it even easier and cheaper for London’s iconic black cabs to go electric - an integral part of green mobility in the UK’s capital. Our new Gett partnership will transform EV charging for thousands of electric taxis and give drivers straightforward access to fantastic charging deals.”

 

Harjit Dhami, Global Head of Procurement at Gett, commented: “We are really pleased to launch this offer for the drivers on the Gett app. The partnership will provide access to nearly 9,000 public charge points in London alone and will help to reduce downtime for black cab drivers. The number of e-black cabs has been growing steadily over the past few years and we are keen to play our part in accelerating the transition to a 100% electric future.”
