Rightcharge has launched an EV fuel card which enables fleets to manage their drivers’ charging at home, work and on the road with payments bundled into a single bill.
As part of the process, fleet drivers can tap a Rightcharge card and pay with company funds at 30 different public charging networks, including Osprey, Shell Recharge and Ionity, thereby unlocking access to more than 34,000 public chargers.
Rightcharge will make payments directly to an employee’s energy supplier to cover the electric vehicle charging portion of their bill, regardless of which energy supplier the employee is with.
Importantly, this avoids the ‘bill shock’ problem, which employees experience when they have to pay up-front for home charging.
Drivers will also be able to tap the Rightcharge card on their workplace chargers so that fleet managers get a holistic view of every driver’s charging.
The card is designed to simplify the transition to electric vehicles and save fleets more than £1,000 per year per driver through integrated tariff intelligence.
Charlie Cook, Rightcharge CEO said, “At Rightcharge, our mission is to empower drivers to go electric by making EV charging easier, more affordable and accessible to all.
“With this new electric fuel card, we are removing the headaches and hassle for both fleet managers and their drivers, simplifying the transition to EVs.
“By giving drivers access to a huge number of public charge points and enabling direct-to-energy-supplier payments, we are breaking down the barriers to EV adoption. This is an incredibly exciting step on our journey.”
