BP Pulse has agreed an enhanced charging agreement with private hire vehicle provider Addison Lee.

The agreement gives Addison Lee’s EV fleet enhanced access to more than 3,000 ultra-fast and rapid chargers on BP Pulse’s network.

This includes access to EV Fleet Charging Hubs on Park Lane in London and at Gatwick Airport.

Addison Lee has pledged to move to an all-electric fleet by 2023, with more than 1,000 EVs expected on-fleet by the end of this year.

BP Pulse UK CEO Akira Kirton said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Addison Lee in its transition to an all-electric fleet. 

“Relationships like this, together with our plans to open several more fleet charging hubs across the City and Greater London, will facilitate more electric journeys and help accelerate the electric transformation of fleets.”

Addison Lee CEO Liam Griffin said: “Access to charging infrastructure continues to be the number one challenge for drivers switching to electric vehicles. 

“Signing up with BP Pulse provides Addison Lee partner drivers with access to its expanding charging network in London – allowing us to continue leading in the transition to zero tail-pipe emissions vehicles. 

“As they expand their charging infrastructure, we look forward to collaborating further with BP Pulse and finding more solutions for the capital.”
