Energy giant SSE Energy Services has today launched a tariff for electric vehicle (EV) owners that gives them up to 2,000kWh of electricity free per year when they charge their car overnight. Named 1 Year Fix and Drive, the off-peak tariff offers EV owners the equivalent of 8,000 miles free a year if they recharge between midnight and 7am, SSE said, basing its estimate on a TESLA Model 3 Standard Range Plus. It added that all electricity used by customers on the tariff will be matched with 100 per cent renewable energy. The tariff is available to both new and existing customers with no exit fee, the company said.

The launch of a fully electric black cab for London has been hailed by the mayor for helping clean up the capital’s polluted air. The Dynamo, a taxi converted from a Nissan electric van in a Coventry factory, is the first 100% electric taxi on the streets of London since 1899. Its predecessor, the Bersey, failed to take off at a time when most cabs were horse-drawn. Only two vehicle types – both zero-emissions capable – can be issued with new Transport for London (TfL) taxi licences.
