EO Charging has partnered with Mercedes-Benz Vans to provide customers with electric vehicle chargers, charge point management software and ongoing support & maintenance.
For retail Mercedes-Benz customers whose vehicle batteries will be charged at home, the EO charge point will be supplied and installed free of charge.
Fleets and small businesses ordering vehicles for operation from one or more depots can also purchase EO chargers from Mercedes-Benz and its official UK Retail network at attractive rates.
Key to Mercedes-Benz Vans’ decision to engage in the new partnership was the service and maintenance package that EO provides to customers through the installation and life of the charger.
EO recently executed a program covering several thousand AC chargers at more than 50 sites across six countries for one of its clients.
As part of the charging program, EO resolved any Europe-wide on-site or remote issue in an average time of under three hours.
Charlie Jardine, CEO and Founder of EO, said, “Making the switch to an electric vehicle can be daunting for businesses and the everyday EV driver. Too often do drivers leave a dealership without having received any education on how charging works – we want to put a stop to this in partnership with Mercedes-Benz Vans.
“The partnership is testament to the reliability and success we’ve already achieved having worked indirectly with Mercedes-Benz Vans and is another significant step on our roadmap to becoming the global leader in charging electric car, van, truck and bus fleets.”
Kevin Ferris, Head of Electric Mobility, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK, added, “We are committed to the pursuit of emission-free mobility and sustainable vehicle production and it is crucial as we work towards these goals that we do so with partners we trust. This explains why Mercedes-Benz Vans UK has chosen to add EO as a charging partner.
“Our pledge to those contemplating the switch to electric is that we will be at their side to support them on their journeys to a cleaner, ‘greener’ future.”
