Up to 5,000 free green miles¹ for Audi electric car owners.

Make the switch and claim your free green miles¹

If you’re an Audi fully electric or plug-in hybrid car customer and you switch your dual fuel home energy supply to Octopus Energy, or if you already have a dual fuel supply with Octopus Energy6, you’ll be eligible for a £90 credit to your energy bill.

Who is Octopus Energy?

Octopus Energy was set up in 2015 to bring sustainable energy to Britain’s households. Today, Octopus supplies energy from purely renewable sources to over 1.5 million UK homes. They have built up an excellent customer service reputation, earning a 5-star rating on Trust Pilot and being named Which? recommended supplier for the last three years.

All Octopus tariffs use 100% green electricity and promise to be no more expensive than competitor non-green tariffs. They make switching as easy as possible, offer fair and transparent prices and don’t lock customers into contracts.

Octopus Go Tariff

The Octopus Go Tariff² is perfect for households with electric vehicles. It’s a revolutionary 100% green electricity tariff, offering cheaper electricity at just 5p per kW/h³, between 00.30am and 4:30am every night. If you have an electric or plug-in hybrid car, it means you can fully charge your vehicle while you sleep; in an Audi e-tron SB 55 S line quattro, this keeps your driving costs at around 2p per mile³. (In comparison, peak unit rates are around 14p/kWh, depending on where you are in UK, with a standing charge of 25p⁴).

1.New customers to Octopus Energy who purchase an Audi electric vehicle and who set up an account for gas and/or electricity who sign up via the referral link https://audi.octopus.energy on Audi’s website will be eligible for free miles in the form of £45 credit per fuel type on their energy account. To receive £90 credit, customers must switch both fuels to Octopus Energy. If only one account is switched, the customer will receive £45 credit. The credit shall be applied once the account is on supply and the first direct debit payment has been taken. If you qualify for more than one marketing incentive, Octopus reserves the right to give you just one incentive.

To benefit from the Octopus Go tariff, the customer must have a SMETS2 smart meter or a SecureTM branded SMETS1 meter that they have agreed to let Octopus receive half-hourly consumption data from. There are some instances where a smart meter installation is not possible, for example remote areas with poor mobile signal. Where smart meter installation is not possible, customers can sign up to an Octopus standard tariff and still receive the £45 credit per fuel type.

For the e-tron SB 55 S line quattro, at Octopus’ Go tariff off-peak rate (5 p/kWh), £90 credit is equivalent to up to 5,000 miles. This is based on a usable battery capacity of 86.5 kWh and WLTP of 241 miles giving an efficiency average of 0.36 kWh/mile. Efficiency differs depending on multiple variables, such as driving conditions and vehicle configuration. If the vehicle is not charged during the off-peak window £90 credit is equivalent to approximately 1790 miles based on the peak electricity price of 14p/kWh.

Existing Octopus Energy customers who purchase an electric vehicle from Audi UK should contact Octopus Energy directly on evoffers@octopus.energy to request a switch and/or add credit to their account.

Audi UK reserves the right to withdraw the offer without notice. Correct as of Sept 2020.
