NewMotion and Fleet Operations support fleets with switch to EVs

By / 10 months ago / UK News / No Comments

Smart charging solutions provider NewMotion is working with Fleet Operations to offer fleets electric vehicle charging solutions.

The partnership will provide Fleet Operations’ clients with charging solutions at home, in the workplace and on-the-go

The partnership with provide Fleet Operations’ customers – as well as those of sister company TraXall UK – with access to NewMotion’s suite of charging solutions, covering home, workplace and on-the-go charging.

As well as NewMotion charge points, fleets and drivers can make use of online tools that provide real-time information on availability and the charging speeds of charge points.  And drivers can also benefit from one of the largest charging networks in Europe – more than 160,000 charging points across 35 countries – thanks to the combination of NewMotion’s EV charge card with a public roaming service that provides access to charge points from other operators.

As part of the complete solution from NewMotion, Fleet Operations’ customers can also access Business Hub. This is an online platform unique to NewMotion, allowing big and small fleets to easily monitor, analyse and control all aspects of the new charging infrastructure at their offices, including real-time data insights on charging costs.

Richard Hipkiss, Fleet Operations managing director, added: “Electric is set to become the predominant fleet vehicle powertrain and we have seen a significant increase in demand for plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles from customers across numerous different industries.

“This trend will continue as clients increasingly review their vehicle and fuel strategies in light of the Government’s tax incentives for zero-emission vehicles, and the future ban on the sale of new petrol, diesel or hybrid cars.

“This partnership with NewMotion reinforces our commitment to providing industry leading support for this rapidly expanding market.”

Additionally, Fleet Operations plans to install seven charge points at its HQ to support the workplace charging needs of its employees.

Alan McCleave, UK general manager of NewMotion, said: “Our 10 years’ experience of working with businesses to provide EV charging solutions enables us to work with Fleet Operations collaboratively to develop its EV charging strategy and ensure a seamless installation experience for its customers.”
