Comments about Elmo

Elmo is really pushing for the electric vehicles to become part of everyday society, bundling everything up into one flexible car subscription. Added benefits are the home charging points and public charging memberships available at cost.

We love the fact that they make a donation to offset your carbon, this takes into account the manufacturing of an electric vehicle, so it great that Elmo have thought outside of the box.

We also love the fact that Elmo give you a physical key, this is a massive bonus over those that give you access via an awkward app that can be quite buggy.
