Addison Lee announces JustPark EV charging partnership

Date: 22 October 2021   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Private hire company Addison Lee has announced a new partnership with JustPark to provide its drivers with exclusive access to off-street charging points.

The partnership involves JustPark's FleetCharge service, designed to provide convenient off-street charging locations for fleet drivers, and follows on from Addison Lee's announcement that its standard fleet will be fully electric by 2023.

Its drivers who do not already have access to off-street parking will be able to use a parking location within a five minute walk of their home, with a dedicated charger installed, while drivers who do have off-street parking will also be able to get a charger installed, both through JustPark's partner in FleetCharge, Octopus Energy.

Addison Lee CEO Liam Griffin said: "Following our pledge to electrify our fleet by 2023, we know how important it is to support our partner drivers with suitable charging solutions for their vehicles. That's why we have chosen to partner with industry innovator, JustPark, as the first fleet to adopt its FleetCharge product." 

"Many vehicle owners in London and UK cities lack access to off-street parking, and the adoption of EVs will only succeed if drivers have access to a mix of charging options. 

"We hope that our partnership with JustPark encourages businesses and consumers to take similar, innovative steps to help our city rapidly shift to EVs."

JustPark founder and CEO Anthony Eskinazi said: "We are delighted to help accelerate Addison Lee's journey to becoming fully electrified, while helping to drastically reduce the fleet's carbon impact and pollution in London. 

"Our FleetCharge solution knocks down barriers to EV adoption and will enable and encourage more fleets to electrify faster than they ever thought possible, and this partnership is just the beginning."
