Uber driver takes top prize in our Good Driver EV Giveaway

Mohammad Umran from Stockport is the lucky winner of our latest giveaway, making him the proud owner of an electric vehicle worth up to £35,000. As a keen fan of electric cars, he was thrilled to learn he’d won: “I have had my eye on an electric car for some time now, even more so recently with the cost of fuel! I am over the moon to have won - this will make a huge difference to my work and my life.”

Head of Sustainability Strategy at Uber, Christopher Hook, offered praise for the winner: Uber is a huge advocate for drivers switching to electric cars and for a more sustainable future in general. We are thrilled to hear that Mohammad has won a new electric vehicle and wish him many safe and sustainable miles in his new car.”

Safe and sustainable private hire insurance

Supporting sustainable driving has always been a part of our mission. Mohammad won his electric car by purchasing a Zego Sense policy, our app-based insurance that rewards safer private hire drivers with discounts on their premiums. The safer you drive, the more you save. In fact, our safest drivers can enjoy up to 32% off the full price of their policy.

The Zego Sense app uses sensors in a driver’s mobile phone to measure the small actions that make a journey safe – things like soft braking, smooth cornering and sticking to the speed limit. We only use this data to calculate your driver’s score — it’s completely secure and never shared or sold.

All drivers with a valid Sense policy, the installed app and a personal driver score were automatically entered into the Good Driver EV Giveaway. Mohammad was selected at random from a pool of thousands of qualified drivers.

Sten Saar, Zego’s CEO, commented: “Zego is all about powering opportunities, especially with Zego Sense policies that assess risk on an individual basis. We hosted the Good Driver Giveaway to raise awareness of safer driving, as well as to reward many of our very safest drivers, not just with the main prize of an electric vehicle, but also with smaller prizes such as £50 Amazon vouchers.
