Elmo drive (https://twitter.com/elmodrive) will start offering the e-Niro 64kWh from £490/mo from 15/6/20, 1 available according to their website at this very minute.
(not including insurance, as a direct comparison to Evezy).
Zoe 22 and Leaf 30s I believe they are 2nd hand, e-Niro's situation is unknown to me yet.

What's included? Breakdown cover, Carbon Offset, Tax and Maintenance / servicing

Thats with their 800 miles a month offer. They do go upto 1200miles per month mind and with all maint included its not a bad offer, albeit for an older leaf and Zoe.

I wonder if they are some ex lease deal vehicles and its a way for them to test the market at the cheaper end to EVEZY?

So I’m still better off with evezy. For a Zoe, I’m paying £59 a month extra with evezy over Elmo. And for that I get a 41kW battery, insurance and polar subscription. And of course 1000 miles per month and only one month commitment.

As I’m on the legacy tariff, and evezy seems to be going up market, this may change in the future. So I’ll be keeping my eye on the Elmo website ;)

Weirdly, today they've changed the price to from £450 (6 month commitment) and £500 (3 month commitment) with 800miles/month (more miles = more ££s)

As a quick update, they have more models on the website. They are also saying that they should be having the ZE50 from Sep2020. They are finalising their fleet insurance in order to be able to offer a final quote for it since the beginning.

Have we heard from anyone who has actually got a vehicle from Elmo?

According to that an MG zsev is the most efficient car out of the lot...

Only ever seen posts from Elmo showing users with cars, so unsure if any are on forums like this or others.

Heres a couple from FB... Seen a handful of posts like this, but no idea how many in total have been delivered. Leaf and Zoe's

25June... This is Matt and his first electric car - a grey Nissan Leaf 30kWh, delivered by us to Brighton this week. 🚗
Matt works as an engineer for a software company specialising in technology around EV batteries. He normally commutes by public transport but his boss was kind enough to offer him a company car instead to reduce COVID-19 risk...👨‍🔬
And, of course, the car had to be electric! ⚡
Matt's company took out a subscription on elmo for a minimum term of 3 months but can keep the car for as long as they like.
Happy driving, Matt! 😎

18June... This is Verity and her first electric car - a silver Nissan Leaf, delivered by us earlier today. 😎
Verity normally lives in London but has been staying with her family in Somerset during lockdown and plans to stay there for the next few months as she can work from home full-time.🎉
Their home is fitted with solar panels and battery storage, so an electric car had to come next! 🚗⚡
We're delighted to have helped!☺

Ok. Companies usually do this when there’s not enough satisfied customers resulting in a few of them posting on forums of their own volition. Look at how many posts evezy had, right from the beginning, on this forum and even Petrolheads.

I hope Elmo does well, and gives ONTO a good run for their money. Healthy competition is good for the customer. But I think this shows how difficult it is to break into this new market. Ollie from Elmo follows me on this forum, although he’s not been around for a couple of months now.

Ultimately, as I said in defending ONTO from what I considered to be unfair criticism, you’ve got to admire these guys for their hard work and determination. I don’t believe money is their primary motivation. They’re trying to influence a radical and revolution change in the personal mobility sector.

Totally agree, starting any business from scratch is a nuts thing to do, even more so when it’s a new concept too.

Another Elmo FB post today with a London based delivery states... She called 35 companies looking for a short-term electric car lease without success before she found elmo.

And that is it in a nutshell. Dedication by the consumer to find something that meets their needs.
Also noticed they have some 2000 followers on FB so trust lots of these become subscribers when they start to get more cars available.
