LeasePlan and charging solution provider Allego, have announced a new partnership that will provide LeasePlan electric vehicle (EV) customers with access to personal charge points at home and at work.
The charge points can be used for all EVs, enable load-balancing and offer automatic reimbursement.
Under the agreement, LeasePlan's EV drivers will also receive a charge card giving them access to more than 65,000 charging points across Europe, helping to address driver 'range anxiety', one of the key factors holding back zero emission mobility.
The scheme will initially be rolled out in Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal and Sweden. Allego will install charge points at the driver's home and office, as well as handling ongoing management and maintenance.
LeasePlan customers will also have access to Allego's EV Cloud Services Platform, which provides billing, monitoring and analytics services.
Tex Gunning, CEO at LeasePlan, commented: "Starting electric is one of the simplest things we can all do to help tackle climate change. Through our partnership with Allego, we can now offer our customers not just electric cars but a comprehensive EV solution, making the transition to electric mobility hassle free."
Anja van Niersen, CEO at Allego, said: "We're proud to be a partner of LeasePlan. With our new partnership, we will not only enable LeasePlan to provide branded charging solutions to their customers, but also provide their EV drivers with access to more than 65,000 charging stations across Europe. From now on, LeasePlan's EV drivers will only need one card to experience true cross-border mobility."
