Richard’s latest piece: a jet-black IONIQ to contrast his bright personality

1000 500 Balazs Szekely

Richard Owusu is a fashionable man and his impressive look just got a boost with his award-winning Hyundai IONIQ Electric from Splend.

I asked a couple of friends and they said the Hyundai IONIQ Electric is very good, very reliable.

Leaving our Member Support Centre in Cricklewood was the first time Richard has been behind the wheel of an electric car, and in what’s becoming a common theme for our new EV drivers, he said he was “very-very excited!”

We asked what exactly does he find most exciting about his new EV, and as we’d suspected, it was all about the hip pocket:

“I’m most excited about not paying the Congestion Charge anymore, as I drive in there about five times a week”

The Congestion Charge Zone currently costs drivers £15 per day, so that’s a minimum saving of £75 per week for Richard thanks to the electric car.

A long-term member of ours since 2019, Richard was happy that he could swap his previous Splend car for a brand new one on our Rent to buy plan. He said, “I really like the service – it’s very good and reliable, and that’s why I wanted to get an electric car from Splend”
