To get you moving, ŠKODA and Octopus Energy are offering the equivalent of up to 7,500 free miles of 100% renewable electric fuel when you sign up to Octopus Go, the smart tariff for electric car owners.
Octopus Go is a smart tariff offering you super-cheap overnight electricity at 5p/kWh between 00:30 — 04:30 every night using nothing but 100% renewable, carbon-free electricity. It's the perfect tariff for charging your new electric ŠKODA at home.
How is the free mileage calculated?
For the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV 80 Loft, at Octopus' Go tariff off-peak rate (5 p/kWh), £90 credit is equivalent to up to 7,500 miles. This is based on a usable battery capacity of 86.5 kWh and WLTP of 241 miles giving an efficiency average of 0.36 kWh/mile. Efficiency differs depending on multiple variables, such as driving conditions and vehicle configuration. If the vehicle is not charged during the off-peak window £90 credit is equivalent to approximately 1790 miles based on the peak electricity price of 14p/kWh.
How do I claim my free miles?
Your free miles will be received in the form of £90 credit in your Octopus Energy account when you switch both fuel accounts to Octopus. The credit will be automatically added to your account once you're on supply and your first direct debit has been taken (usually around 10 days later).
