EZOO is an electric vehicle subscription company based in Coventry and Glasgow, offering delivery and one-month terms as a minimum. The company’s founders, Lash and Charnjit Saranna, have 30 years’ automotive experience including building Europe’s largest independent Porsche centre. The company’s mission is to help facilitate the switch to EVs across the UK in line with the government’s pledge to phase out the production and sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030.
How it Works
EZOO customers must be between 25 and 75, a UK resident for a minimum of a year, the holder of a UK/EU licence for a minimum of 1 year (2 years for business customers) and have had no motoring offences in the last 36 months (and no more than 6 points on your licence). You can choose from 29 vehicles, and once you have paid the admin fee and damage waiver, you can arrange to collect your vehicle. You may resubscribe at the end of the term, but you cannot switch vehicles during the term.
Costs and Fees
An EZOO subscription costs from £239 per month for the compact Renault Twizy, or from £325 per month for the Renault Zoe. Insurance is included with a £1000 excess, and there is a £120 admin fee due at the start of your term, along with a refundable damage waiver, which varies (usually £500). You may collect your vehicle or arrange for delivery at £1.20 per mile. You can also purchase additional mileage packages on top of the allowed 800 miles per month, with 2, 5, or 700 extra miles per month available. Early cancellations will be charged the full remainder of the term.

What’s Special about Ezoo?
Ezoo is an electric only subscription service with a larger range than most of their EV only competitors. By including the Renault Twizy as a vehicle, they also cover an affordable inner-city option, but the Renault Zoe is also low cost compared with other EV subscription companies. There is also one electric van – the VW ID.Buzz, which is not widely available. The add-on mileage packages offer an extra layer of flexibility, and there are separate business terms for corporate users.
Can you bring vapes into an EZOO vehicle?
No, you cannot smoke or vape in your car.
What is the 2030 law on electric cars?
By 2030, no more petrol or diesel cars will be manufactured or sold in the UK. Between 2030 and 2035, new vehicles can be produced if they are able to travel significant distances with zero emissions (hybrid vehicles). After that, it’s electric only.
What is the damage check?
EZOO conduct a thorough damage check within 14 days of their vehicles being returned. If there is any damage that exceeds the fair wear and tear policy, you will be charged.
Do EZOO offer new cars?
There is no guarantee that your vehicle will be new. However, the vast majority of their vehicles are under 3 years old.
When does delivery take place?
You can choose a morning (9-1) slot or an afternoon (1-5) slot.
The range that Ezoo is able to offer is wider than many of its EV competitors, and with an additional mileage package added on, most users should be happy with the allowable usage. The fact that you cannot cancel early without incurring the total remaining fee, is slightly less flexible than its competitors, and the delivery charge is quite high, meaning that the service might appeal more to people who are able to collect and drop off their vehicles easily.
EZOO uses Facebook to market their vehicles and share their blog posts.
