The fleet of the electric vehicle subscription platform Onto keeps expanding as the company has just signed new deals with DS Automobiles and Peugeot.
The PSA Groupe’s premium brand will supply 300 all-electric DS 3 Crossback E-Tense cars. At the same time, Peugeot will provide 300 of its e-208 GT.
Onto users get up to 1,000 miles a month, with insurance, vehicle excise duty, roadside recovery and charging fees all included in the package.
The DS 3 is the first all-electric model from the company, and is powered by a 100kW (136hp) electric motor with 260Nm of torque, linked to a 50kWh lithium-ion battery to deliver a WLTP driving range of up to 206 miles. Charging to 80% takes just 30 minutes via a 100kW rapid charger.
Similarly, the e-208, which was voted ‘European Car of the Year’ earlier in the year, also comes with a 50kWh battery connected to a 100kW (136hp) electric motor and is capable of up to 217 miles of range (WLTP) from a single charge. Like the DS, it supports rapid charging of up to 100kW, reaching 80% charge in as little as 30 minutes.
The DS3 will have a starting price of £499 a month for the Performance Line version. The Peugeot instead will be slightly cheaper and will be available from £449.
We also reported a few months ago that the innovative subscription-based EV service, which was once known as Evezy, has also ordered 1,100 Renault ZOEs to add to its fleet. The compact French car features a 50KW DC rapid charge option, which allows 90 miles of charge to be restored in only 30 minutes and offers a highly usable total range of up to 245 miles (WLTP). The Zoe will have a monthly subscription of £339.
Onto aims to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles and provides customers with a fully flexible alternative to vehicle ownership for a monthly payment with no deposit.
