NewMotion tie-up to simplify charging for Ford drivers
Shell’s NewMotion has signed a deal that will benefit Ford plug-in hybrid drivers through easy access to smart charging solutions.
Drivers will be able to use a dedicated NewMotion smartphone app and charge card that gives access to more than 118,000 charge points in 30 countries in Europe.
The partnership, effective this autumn, will help Ford customers locate and pay for charging more easily when on the road.
“Teaming up with Ford, one of the world’s leading car manufacturers, will give us new opportunities to power up the e-mobility revolution. Ford PHEV drivers will gain access to Europe’s largest roaming network via NewMotion, the app and the charge card,” said Sytse Zuidema, CEO of NewMotion.
Mark McMahon, manager, business development & EV services, Team Edison, Ford of Europe, added: “We are excited to work with NewMotion as our partner for public charging because they have the largest roaming network in Europe. Together we will offer seamless access to NewMotion’s charging infrastructure for drivers using the new Ford smartphone app, simplifying the user experience for Ford PHEV customers.”
