What did you miss from Electric Week?
Last week the Otto Team was all about electric. New cars, industry news, articles and events were brought to familiarise our drivers with electric and show that going electric is easily achievable.
Take a look at what we’ve been up to.
Time to take charge
We started a new chapter by taking further steps towards becoming an all electric fleet.
This means introducing new electric and plug-in vehicles (see full list of our Rent-to-Buy cars here) and saying goodbye to some of our old PCO cars.
