Car sharing firm LeasePlan and charging solution provider Allego have announced a new partnership to provide LeasePlan EV customers with access to personal chargers at home and at work. The charge points are designed to enable drivers to be automatically reimbursed for load balancing services provided to utilities.
The scheme will initially be rolled out in Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal and Sweden. Allego will install charge points at both the driver’s home and office, and will handle ongoing maintenance. LeasePlan customers will be able to access Allego’s EV Cloud Services Platform, which provides access to billing, monitoring and analytics services.
“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,” said Tex Gunning, CEO of LeasePlan. “It can be done with the stroke of a pen.”
“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,” said Allego CEO Anja van Niersen. “From now on, LeasePlan’s EV drivers will only need one card to experience true cross-border mobility.”
