RAC selected to provide EV fleet support

Electric car subscription service Onto has selected the RAC as its servicing and roadside assistance services partner.

As a result of the partnership, the RAC will now be responsible for servicing 6,000-plus Onto vehicles.

Servicing will be carried out by the RAC’s mobile team of expert electric vehicle (EV) technicians, who are qualified to the IMI’s Level 3 standard.

The RAC’s patrol vans utilise market-leading EV-specific breakdown equipment such as EV Boost emergency mobile charging units and the All-Wheels-Up rapid recovery system that gives a flatbed capability to a standard patrol van.

Dan Sparks, business CEO at the RAC said: “As well as the RAC’s renowned roadside assistance service, which already caters for the needs of electric car drivers, we’re extremely pleased to be providing mobile servicing to Onto’s entire electric car fleet, which is one of Europe’s largest.

“We’re able to service customers’ vehicles at a place and time to suit them, making it as simple as possible for Onto customers to enjoy the benefits of driving and running an electric car.”

Rob Jolly, CEO and co-founder at Onto added: “To meet the experience that our subscribers expect from Onto, we needed a trusted partner that we could depend on for first-class roadside assistance and servicing.

“The RAC’s reputation, along with its focus on innovation and adaptability to meet the needs of a new electric car era, make it the obvious choice for Onto.

“This partnership makes our all-inclusive subscription even more simple and convenient for people to drive an electric car.”
