NewMotion, a leader in smart EV charging solutions and a Shell group company, has been selected as a preferred EV charging supplier for Europe by fleet management company, LeasePlan. Under the deal, NewMotion will provide LeasePlan customers with EV charging solutions at home, the workplace, and on the go.
This partnership is a significant step for NewMotion in supporting the global ambition of Shell; to operate more than half a million charge points for businesses, fleets, at retail sites and customer’s homes by 2025.
The first phase of the roll-out will see LeasePlan customers in the United Kingdom, Germany, Norway and Sweden benefit from NewMotion’s charging technology, before a roll-out across other European markets.
It will support LeasePlan with the installation of charge points, back-office technology for controlling its charge points and a charge card to access public chargers.
LeasePlan has approximately 1.9 million vehicles under management in over 30 countries.
It has set itself the goal of achieving net zero tailpipe emissions from its entire funded fleet by 2030, in support of the Paris Agreement.
Melanie Lane, CEO at NewMotion says: “We’re really excited to support LeasePlan, one of Europe’s largest players in leasing, in their efforts to scale up e-mobility. Over the past ten years, we have seen more and more people switching to EVs, along with an increased interest from companies to facilitate this. To make the transition seamless for both businesses and their employees, companies need a smart charging ecosystem that helps them to monitor and control their charging. We’re proud to support LeasePlan in achieving its net zero target for its fleets by 2030.”
Providing access to over 200,000 charge points across 35 countries, NewMotion offers an expansive roaming network in Europe. More than 400,000 registered drivers already use NewMotion’s charge card or app for a seamless charging experience on-the-go.
