Mina and TMC collaborate to help fleets reimburse drivers for EV mileage
EV charging specialist Mina has teamed up with fleet mileage and expenses firm TMC to help ensure a hassle-free EV home charging for business drivers.
The tie-up – intended to help businesses switch to EVs with confidence – will enable drivers to record their business journeys through TMC’s app, with Mina then connecting to the employee’s smart charger and calculating the actual cost of electricity used for business mileage based on the employee’s electricity tariff.
Benefits include a direct credit to the employee for their energy bill, meaning they don’t need to claim for expenses, while the business receives one monthly bill to cover home charging for the whole fleet.
The collaboration has already kicked-off with deployment at one of the UK’s largest fleets.
Paul Hollick, managing director at TMC, said: “We are delighted to be working with Mina to offer our clients another option for domestic electricity reimbursement. TMC-e is all about making the transition to electric vehicles as hassle free as possible for fleets and Mina was founded on the premise to make electric charging radically simple. It’s a great collaboration. Home charging is the most cost-effective way to charge electric vehicles and businesses should encourage it wherever possible. Expanding TMC-e to include the Mina payment options makes perfect sense and gives our clients a market-leading product when reimbursing employees for their business mileage.”
Ashley Tate, co-founder and director of Mina, also commented: “We’re really pleased to be working with TMC to complement their end-to-end EV fleet solutions. TMC are experts in fleet management, so to be collaborating with them to help make EV charging really simple for fleets is an exciting opportunity.”
