Allstar launches EV fuel card

Fuel card provider Allstar has launched a new card designed for drivers switching to electric or hybrid vehicles.
The Allstar One Electric card combines the functions of the existing Allstar One card - including access to its filling station network, discounted diesel and producing one HMRC-compliant invoice for all transactions - with the ability to pay for electric vehicle (EV) charging across a multi-branded network.
This network currently includes Engenie, Source London, Geniepoint and ESB EV Solutions.
Allstar says the new card has been produced in response to a direct call from fleet managers who want to move to a combination of all fuel types on one card, and compliments the existing ability of an Allstar card to pay for hydrogen.
Paul Holland, MD for UK fuel at Allstar's parent company Fleetcor, said: "Those managing fleets that combine petrol, diesel and electric vehicles are faced with many challenges, needing to manage multiple accounts and payment methods to ensure their fleet has access to a convenient network for all its refuelling needs.
"On top of this, they are met by varying account structures, different pricing, separate invoicing and reporting, leading to a lot of administration that leaves fleet managers and owners without the necessary controls to run their business.
"With our card, we want to ensure our customers are supported with convenient payment solutions to keep their vehicles on the road."
