Electric Vehicle Mobile App Launches

Posted: 1st September 2023

Bounc-e EV have launched a UK first mobile App to revolutionise how both businesses and private drivers are able to make the switch to electric motoring.

Helping everyone cut their carbon footprint is key to the Bounce EV proposition, assisting the switch of private and fleet users, including their bespoke Salary Sacrifice Scheme (SalSac) to electric vehicles. The easy-to-use mobile app offers a vast selection of electric vehicles (EVs), an EV education library in addition to charge point options and mapping, all at the touch of a screen.

The Bounce EV bespoke SalSac scheme has been built to suit businesses of all sizes, whether 1 vehicle or 1000. With flexible packages for 12-48 months, the scheme can be built to suit your business and your employees. With the ongoing tax advantages available for EVs via a Salary Sacrifice scheme for both the employer and the employee, the App gives each user a unique login, so they can explore how the scheme can benefit them.

The Bounc-e app has been designed to be an easy to navigate EV carshop.

Robert Simpson, Director at Bounc-e said: “More businesses than ever want to switch their commercial car fleet to electric and offer their colleagues the benefits of a SalSac scheme, however, they are often held back by a lack of understanding, onerous lease arrangements, charging point installation problems and limited vehicle selection.

“As the first mobile app offering a SalSac EV shop, we are passionate about enabling businesses to do the right thing for the environment from day one while empowering employees to lower their carbon footprint.

“At Bounc-e, we are smoothing the route to commercial electrical car ownership and building the future of car shopping via an intuitive app that offers both environmental choice and flexible ownership contracts plus support with the full electric vehicle switch.”

Bounc-e was awarded funding from Michelin Scotland Innovation Parc’s (MSIP) Innovation Challenge. Scottish Enterprise provided a further project funding which was match funded by an Angel Investment Syndicate. Bounc-e’s founders also benefited from the MSIP Agitators’ advice that helped nurture and develop the business during its set-up period.

The app is available now on Google Play and the Apple App Store, search ‘bounce ev’
