LeasePlan partners with Chargemaster for EV fleet solution

Fleet drivers opting for electric vehicles from LeasePlan can now get access to charge points at home, at work and on the road under a new “industry first” partnership with Chargemaster.

The package brings drivers access to charging at home, on the road and at the office

Intended to bring a “one-stop-shop solution” to help drivers make the shift, the tie-up between the two firms means that drivers choosing a new electric vehicle from LeasePlan will be able to select LeasePlan’s e-mobility solution with the option of a Home Charger Package (included in the monthly lease). This includes a wall-mounted 7.4kw charge point, warranty and support service for the duration of the lease, and network subscription to Chargemaster’s Polar public charging network, which provides access to more than 6,500 nationwide charging points, again for the lifetime of the leasing agreement.

Fleets can also get support with deploying charge point facilities for EV drivers at work with the help of site surveys, installation of Chargemaster’s UK-made charge points and support, as well as system access for billing and reporting.

Matt Dyer, managing director, LeasePlan UK said: “We’re seeing an increased demand for low-emission vehicles from customers looking to lower their overall fleet emissions and improve air quality. Our latest partnership with Chargemaster is just one of the ways we’re making it easier for them to make the switch to electric and achieve their goals. Previous concerns around charging anxiety have prevented this move in the past – but the final piece in the puzzle, bringing together the vehicle and all forms of charging, means we can offer a comprehensive EV solution to help speed up the transition to electric motoring.”
