Following the deal the Allstar One Electric charging network now offers 1,700 locations and over 4,200 charging points
London, 6th April 2021 – Allstar Business Solutions Limited, the UK’s leading fuel management company, today announces it has partnered with Plug-N-Go, the electric vehicle (EV) fast charging point providers. By adding Plug-N-Go’s 18 sites to its multi-branded Allstar One Electric network, Allstar now enables fleet drivers to recharge their EVs at over 1,700 sites across the UK.
Plug-N-Go works to provide best in class EV charging infrastructure to support businesses as they electrify their vehicles. Its core values of universal availability, high levels of service and reducing carbon emissions marries with those of Allstar, making it a strong partnership that will last and benefit UK businesses as they make the transition to EV.
This joint approach will serve to provide customers with greater access to charging points, lowering range anxiety, a common barrier to entry for fleet operators looking to transition their vehicles. It will also ensure that they have full control over their drivers refuelling and spending habits, increasing visibility over locations available and how company money is being spent.
With 65% of businesses planning to add EVs into their fleets over the next three years*, combined with a drive from the UK government to ban sales of new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030, providing the right resources and infrastructure to support companies’ transition to EV is key.
The partnership with Plug-N-Go is the latest in a string of strategic deals that are enabling Allstar to work towards its goal of creating an EV charging network that is equivalent to its traditional fuelling points. The purpose is to meet the rapidly growing demand from businesses looking to ensure they have the most convenient and efficient way to charge their vehicles.
Paul Holland, Managing Director of UK Fuel at FLEETCOR UK, said: “Our partnership with Plug-N-Go significantly strengthens the availability of EV charging for businesses across the UK, something that is key to the success of transitioning fleets over from traditional fuel types. It comes after we recently launched our Allstar One Electric card, which enables fleet managers to pay for all fuel types on one card, further easing the transition for operators. We’re pleased to be working with Plug-N-Go during such a critical period of change.”
Keith Hounsell, Founder & Chief Executive Officer at Plug-N-Go, added: “The number of electric vehicles on the roads is increasing daily, but to ensure that everyone is able to seamlessly make the move to greener travel, we must provide regular charging points that are quick and easy to use. By combining our innovative technology with Allstar’s ever-growing network, we are able to achieve this together.”
