Hi All,

As some of you might know, I've just picked up my Renault Zoe ZE50 GT Line CCS from ELMO DRIVE today and, as I believe there is no one on the forum that uses their services yet, thought we could all have a place for opinions, questions, share feedback etc.

ELMO DRIVE are a subscription company for Electric Vehicles both brand new and used.
137616



1) You rent the car month by month, no deposit and no minimum term (when you book it, you pay a month in advance, delivery and a 1 off fee).
2) Rental includes insurance, mileages (you can choose how many), maintenance, breakdown and carbon offset donation included too.
3) You DO get a key.
4) Basic subscription is the car, but you can add to it up to 2 extra drivers (£10/each), a home charger (Ohme), renewable home energy tariff (So energy, with which you can also get an allowance of free energy for your miles, or if you don't use them for your own household energy), public charger subscription (unlimited polar for £10/month) etc
5) As per today (24/11/20) you can choose between brand new Renault ZOE ZE50 GT Line CCS, brand new MG ZS EV (both excite or exclusive) and they often have used Renault ZOE 22kWh and used Nissan Leaf 30 kWh.

If you are interested in joining you can use my referral code (they only one as far as I know) to give us both £50 off your first month: ISB2GG (they are implementing their referral scheme, but you can email it to them and they'll readjust it for you).

Elmo also offers some driving analytics, showing your miles driven, average daily, CO2 saved and your driving score. I will be showing more about this when I drive something first.

So far I have to say that I joined and booked the ZE50 at the end of last week and arranged the delivery very easily. Adding you license (I did not have any trouble with a EU one), address, payment details and other common info.
Today I received a text from Elmo with a link to Samsara's tracking, where I could see in real time the location and ETA of my car. The driver called me in advance anyway and show me a few things at the exchange. He basically drove it from 0. After a charge on the motorway (his), range was at 80% still showing 200 miles, I have to say I'm quite impressed.
The car came brand new basically, including a Type 2-type 2 charging cable, locking wheel nut and puncture repair kit. It did not come with granny cable not floor mats, although after contacting Elmo they said that you can ask for a granny if needed (it's just that most dont use it).

I'll be posting more soon, but now a few good pictures:
For those who know On.to/Evezy, this is quite important... it comes with a key!!

137621



For me the important thing to change was the lack of key, having to use an app and the price of a GTLine CCS. I liked the ZE40 a lot, but although you could do long trips with it, the 22kW charging was a bit too slow. Now I can have a key, and a cheaper ZE50 GT line!!
So far its clearly better than ZE40 in range, tech inside and B mode is quite aggressive in comparison.

Please let me know if you have any doubts and hopefully i can help other people interested in Elmo!

It looks like there’s a 12month minimum term in the Zoe from the website? Although I’ve only glanced through it.

Do they fit a dash cam?

Interesting. I wonder what condition their older cars are in.

You can choose 3, 6 or 12 months minimum.

I didnt have time before, but i think that if there is a dashcam it's much more subtle than On.to's.

Also there is a tracking tag, very discreet, in the right hand side of the widndscreen.

Here are a few questions to convince me to defect. If I do, I’ll definitely use your referral code!

Monthly cost on the 3 month minimum contract with 10k miles.
How much is the joining fee? Is this a one off for life?
How much is delivery?
How much is the insurance excess?
Am I correct in saying I would have to pay a £30 a month surcharge because I live in London?

I'll try to reply the best I can:
  1. ZE50 800 miles/month (9600/year) with 3 month minimum is £399
  2. Delivery depends on your location, they say that first 50 miles are free (if you pm your postcode I can check)
  3. One off fee is £95
  4. Excess is the common (and excessive) £1000, I am still using my insurance4carhire (they are monthly rents)
  5. London and midlands have a £30 surcharge indeed.

Averaged 12 months of this would be:
379*12
95
I have put a London postcode = £22 delivery
30*12
-50 (referral, although you can get more by referring other people too, unlimited)
---
£414.6 avg per month (living in london, £384 outside) for a ZE50 GT Line CCS with physical key

Regarding dash cam, it does have a dash cam indeed as I've asked them, but from pictures or being in the car I didnt even notice. They put them for insurance reasons btw.

Wow, should I call this feeling key-envy or key-lust?

Also, do you know if Elmo lets you take the car to Northern Ireland without big fees? Aware that's not a problem everyone faces!

I just got an answer for you:

travel to the EU and Northern Ireland is allowed and included in the insurance policy as long as Elmo is notified.

I didn’t know this either, defo planning some EU travel when life is a bit more normal

£414.6 avg per month (living in london

So basically in this scenario ONTO is better as for a couple of pounds more you get 200 miles more per month and 1 month term.

In onto you need to add the delivery to the calculation too. Plus EU/N. Ireland travel comes for free but with Onto you pay extra.

Example Onto ZE50 gt line= £419+ £4.09 (delivery/12 months) =£423
Example Elmo= £384 (or 416.6 if living in London or midlands)

at the end depends how many miles you need and where are you based

Don’t forget to add the £10 a month for the Polar Subscription to the Elmo Price. Also some early ONTO customers get two additional drivers included, whereas Elmo charge £10 a month for each one. And ONTO gave a discount of £50 for each of the first three months of the ZE50 subscription and we got the first delivery charge at half price.

Another potential consideration is the referral program. Are you likely to get as many referrals from Elmo as you would from ONTO?

Elmo Minimum 3 month 8k miles £399
London Surcharge £30
Polar Subscription £10
Set up fee (£85) £7.08
Delivery (£22) £1.83
Total £448

ONTO
Minimum 1 month 12k miles £419
Discount (£150) less £12.50
Delivery (£25) £2.08
Total £409

Over 12 months, Elmo would be £39 a month more expensive for me.

In view of the above, ONTO currently offer the cheaper solution for me. I like the flexibility of a monthly contract, so would only want to go for the minimum 3 month agreement at £399. Add to that the £30 surcharge, £10 Polar Subscription (I can’t charge at home) and potentially extra miles, Elmo come out at £439 as opposed to £419 with ONTO (£448 verses £423 if set up fee and delivery costs are added and amortised over the 12 months)
I do like the idea of them installing a home charger as well, this is definitely an advantage over ONTO

I think it comes to a matter of personal situation of location and needs.
Hopefully is clients will benefit from competition between companies.
Things such as home energy provider, charging point, international travel, 3rd party charging subscriptions, car availability and extras.

for my particular case, economically speaking makes sense to change, plus gives me other musts as key and international travel.

Is the home charger included in the £10 add on or is that extra again.

Found it:

How much does it cost?
For just £38pm (on a 12-month subscription) or £76pm (on a 6-month subscription), you can rent an Ohme charge point from us. We will also take a £125 fee to cover the installation.
