Prospective EV buyers simply drive their petrol or diesel (ICE) car as usual, and let the EVCurious app do all the data collection and analyses for them
Electric vehicles are cheaper to run, kinder to the environment and hold their value longer. But how can consumers be sure the move is right for them?
The EV Curious app tells a user whether an electric vehicle can do the many and variety of journeys they make today in their internal combustion engine (ICE) car. How much it will cost to run, and to match them with EVs that best fit their unique mobility lifestyle needs.
Zero emissions, low effort and high data-derived confidence
They just install the EV Curious app and then get on with their life. It automatically detects their journeys, distinguishing the different modes so it can pick out their car journeys. They don't even have to remember to open the app.
We're about being friction free, delightful to use and delivering a real tangible value proposition in the process of making such a large purchasing decision.
With recommendations that are completely tailored to the buyer because they are based on the way they actually travel. No generic assumptions, web surveys, finger in the air estimates, or agenda driven suggestions.
How EV Curious serves 1st time EV buyers
Will any of the EVs available have the range my unique mobility
We model how often they would need a full charge, or how long they would need to charge every day. The app will also aim to help identify which public charging networks best fit a user's driving habits.
Taking them from charging desserts to charging confident.
What are the potential money savings like? And what about the environmental savings?
EV Curious calculates the fuel costs of your journeys for both your current car and an electric vehicle to show you the savings.
It also calculates the carbon emissions that you would save so you can make an informed decision.
How EV Curious serves the EV industry
We help 1st time EV buyers find you on or offline
Once EV Curious has helped a 1st timers discover the best EV to match their lifestyle, our platform can help them find the nearest dealership franchises, subscription providers or leasing companies.
At the point-of-sale EV conversion rates are markedly lower than with ICE cars (McKinsey). Our aim is to deliver ready buyers that don't need to ask impossible to answer questions of salespersons. Making that test drive count, and reducing the return rate for online-only providers.
Data to inform battery rightsizing and new EV points
EV range fears are mostly unwarranted, and revealing the real-world range needs of 1st time EV buyers, is data to champion more smaller battery options. We want to help open up new market segments and make the same battery resources reach more EVs.
These same 1st timers are also the next wave of EV owners, and a much more relevant data set to help prioritise where new charging points should be installed. Focusing CAPEX budgets and thereby meeting new EV user's needs.
RoI - EVC is more focused than any social media ad
In a typical year the UK auto sector spends in xs of £1.2bn on digital ads (in the USA its +$14bn pa). That's about £800 or $800 per new car sale.
What are the buyer insights like? What of the buyer's mobility needs, buying criteria or budget range? Even the audit trail to gauge impactfulness is skewed?
With EVCurious there are deep buyer insights, that serve both the industry and the consumer. Offering an opportunity to help counter the sometimes unfair charge of an industry driven by the sale.
A platform to all the EV related services 1st timers wants
EV Curious wants to champion industry leading companies. Like insurers who recognise the benefits of EVs, energy cos who want to encourage V2G EV ownership or offer easy-to-use bundles, relevant home charge installers and public network providers.
A whole new universe of EV specific services await, bringing the best-in-class providers on to a platform built on trust. Taking them from awareness right through to evaluation and action.
