🏅 Mission

We want to help 15,000 people switch to an electric car by 2023 and stop 125,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions in the process.

👀 Vision

A future where access to personal mobility and green technology is smart, seamless and sustainable. For everybody.

🌍 Overview

We believe that new technology should benefit everyone and work for a brighter, cleaner future for our planet. Electric cars are one such technology with the potential to drastically reduce transport carbon emissions. And that’s where elmo comes in...

elmo is the world’s first Net Zero electric car subscription platform integrated with the energy ecosystem; and the easiest way for an individual or business to switch to an electric car.

Our users can access an electric car with no deposit, on a flexible monthly contract, including everything needed to run the car - from insurance to charging.

With our flexible, convenient and digital-first platform, we are accelerating the transition to EVs and reimagining the €384BN EU leasing industry to align with the needs of modern consumers.

👊 Team

The team is led by Oliver Jones (Angel Investment Network, Startup Microdose Podcast) and Luke Gavin (Element Energy, Octopus Energy)...

...And backed by investors and advisors team including a former Tesla and BMW Director, the ex-Head of EV at EDF Energy, the founder of Green.TV and a former MD at Barclays.

🚘 Roadmap

  • 2019 involved raising a pre-seed funding round, researching the concept, building key relationships and partnerships, engaging with prospective customers and finally building V1 of the platform.
  • The platform went live to a limited number of early users in mid-February 2020 and, despite a year interrupted by COVID, we enjoyed great customer feedback and strong growth. This allowed us to raise another funding round at the start of 2021 to start scaling up our operation and our impact.
  • Along the way, we've been awarded innovation & sustainability grants by the UK government, we've been selected for the prestigious Tech Nation Net Zero accelerator programme, and we've been featured in mainstream press including the Guardian and BBC Radio.
