Electric vehicle charging reimbursement specialist Mina has partnered with InstaVolt to give users of its Chargepass access to the rapid charging network’s charge points.
The Mina Chargepass, a single RFID card, does not require any app downloads or payments from the driver.
Instead, a single monthly VAT invoice is sent to the business covering all charging costs for their entire fleet whether charges have occurred in public, at home or in the workplace.
Businesses have a full overview of their fleet’s charging behaviour in the Mina Fleet Portal, including carbon insights, allowing them to manage their drivers’ charging activity on one platform.
The InstaVolt network, which includes locations such as Costa Coffee, McDonald’s and Booths Supermarkets, plans to introduce higher-powered chargers later this year, capable of charging at speeds up to 160kW.
Ashley Tate, CEO and co-founder at Mina, said, “Minimising downtime while charging in public is the number one priority for fleet operators.
“Our partnership with InstaVolt now gives our Chargepass customers access to the most liked and most reliable network in the UK and further reduces the risk of drivers not being able to charge during busy periods.”
Adrian Keen, CEO at Instavolt, added: “For the past five years, InstaVolt has been setting the standard across the UK for EV charging infrastructure and driver experience and I’m proud that we consistently top user surveys for ease of use and reliability, both of which are important to businesses and fleets making the switch to electric.
“We’re delighted to be establishing our presence further with Mina and making business travel easier and more reliable for EV drivers across the UK.”
