Meet Ola – Veteran Bolt driver and EV pioneer

A seasoned veteran of London’s roads, Olalekan Ibraheem has been driving with Bolt for two years now.

Ola was one of our first customers to pick up his Hyundai Ioniq Electric on our Flexi own plan, through the partnership between Splend and Bolt.

When asked about the opportunity to own a brand-new electric car, Ola replied, “I’m very, very, excited.”

When we talked about the savings he’ll achieve by driving an electric car for ridesharing, he really couldn’t hide his excitement:

“For the first time, I’m driving an electric car and I won’t need to pay the Congestion Charge anymore.”

“I’ll be saving a weekly £105 as I drive into the Congestion Charge Zone everyday – partly because of where I live, but declining all the trips through Central London would also be a luxury I can’t afford. I don’t have to pay for fuel anymore either, and charging is cheaper.”

Ola was also quick to point out that contributing to a cleaner air in London by driving an electric car was another big factor in his decision.

At Splend we pride ourselves on customer service and this was reflected in Ola’s comments when asked about joining our community of on-demand drivers.

“So far, so good! The staff have been very supportive, and they have the answer to any question.”
