Car benefit specialist Tusker and Zap-Map have launched a new partnership to provide salary sacrifice drivers with more assistance when switching to an EV.
Users of Tusker’s website and app can now take advantage of the Zap-Map fuel versus electricity cost calculator which allows drivers to input vehicle types and mileages and discover the potential savings available to EVs when compared to internal combustion-engined vehicles.
Zap-Map has also added a dedicated salary sacrifice page to its website and app in recognition of the part employee benefits are having on fast tracking the uptake of EVs.
In addition, Zap-Map’s charge point locater app has been integrated into Tusker’s new website.
This means users can find their nearest charging points, filter these chargers by type, power and availability and also plan journeys.
Melanie Shufflebotham, COO and co-founder of Zap-Map, said: “Tusker customers can benefit from our comprehensive and up-to-date information on the UK charging network, ensuring a smooth experience for drivers needing to search, plan and pay for their journeys.
“Each new partnership supports our goal of accelerating the shift to zero carbon mobility.”
Paul Gilshan, CEO of Tusker, said, “Our partnership with Zap-Map offers great benefits to our drivers, as Zap-Map’s advanced charger mapping removes yet another worry for those new to electric vehicles.
“Although our research has shown the majority of drivers do not need to charge their vehicles more than once a week, with Zap-Map, finding chargers while out and about or planning longer journeys is now a much easier task.
“With the addition of the salary sacrifice page to the Zap-Map website, those who may be new to EVs or considering their first electric car can learn about the enormous cost benefits of taking one through their employer.”
