Following a successful Premium Beta trial conducted since August 2023, Bonnet has leveraged valuable insights gathered during this period to enhance its Boost subscription program, with thousands of drivers already enrolled.
The Boost subscription offers two tiers: the ‘Light Boost' subscription, priced at £2 per month, and the ‘Turbo Boost' subscription, available at £8 per month.
Customers opting for the Light Boost subscription will enjoy a 10% discount on all Bonnet charging, exclusive charging rewards, and real-time charging updates. This includes information on energy consumption, associated costs, and warnings about penalty fees.
Turbo Boost subscribers will receive the same benefits as Light Boost, with an additional 15% discount on all charging. Moreover, they gain access to Bonnet's revamped route planner, featuring industry-leading customizable capabilities. Users can now modify their route without ending the current one, edit individual chargers (within a 5km range), choose a balanced or optimized route for cost, time, or reliability, filter in or out non-Bonnet chargers on their route, and edit their car details.
Boost customers can also monitor charging information in real-time within the Bonnet app during a session, allowing them to halt charging once they've reached their desired threshold. Push notifications are sent to warn about potential overstay fees before they are applied, assisting users in keeping their charging costs at a minimum.
Patrick Reich, CEO and co-founder of Bonnet, highlighted the company's commitment to assisting customers in managing EV costs effectively. He emphasized the development of subscription-based offers, reliable charging updates, and an enhanced route planner, all shaped by customer testing and feedback. Reich expressed the company's dedication to simplifying and cost-effectively facilitating the charging process, especially with the increasing adoption of electric vehicles.
