Arunsi Uka Osim has the type of smile that lights up an entire room, and the crew at our Member Support Centre had the pleasure to experience his infectious energy when he came to pick up his brand-new MG5 EV on Rent to buy.
His enthusiasm peaked when he first sat behind the wheel of his new car:
“The mileage on my car is just 1!”
An Uber driver since 2017, Arunsi knows a thing or two about ridesharing and he’s a big advocate for the green mobility movement.
“In London, you need to drive an electric car because the low-emission areas are expanding. With an EV I don’t have to worry about where and when I’m driving.”
A common theme amongst electric car drivers is the savings they can look forward to as they don’t have to pay the ULEZ and Congestion Charge.
“I’ll save up to £100 a week.”
After several years on the road, Arunsi decided it was time to join the Splend community in early 2020.
When we asked him about Splend’s service, Arunsi was quick to poke some fun at our team. He put on his most unimpressed face, and even shrugged his shoulders a bit as he said, “they’re okay…” But that trademark smile always shines through – in fact, he burst into giggles:
“They’re very friendly, and I encourage others to work with Splend.”
