EV charging company Rightcharge is set to transform the landscape of fleet management with the launch of the UK’s most comprehensive electric fuel card. Fleets will be able to manage their employees’ electric vehicle charging at home, work and on the road with payments for all drivers bundled into a single bill. This cutting-edge solution is designed to simplify the transition to electric vehicles and save fleets over £1,000 per year per driver through integrated tariff intelligence.
Fleet drivers will be able to tap a Rightcharge card and pay with company funds at 30 different public charging networks, including Osprey, Shell Recharge and Ionity, unlocking access to more than 34,000 public chargers. While Fleet Managers can also pay for their employees’ home charging, so drivers are never out of pocket. Rightcharge makes 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.
Rightcharge has overcome the EV-tariff problem for fleets. A common challenge to date has been that fleets can’t ask employees to switch to an EV-friendly home energy tariff because the significant EV charging savings often come with a slight increase in the cost of powering the home. To overcome this, Rightcharge splits the savings between the driver and the business, meaning fleets could save over £1,000 per year per driver. Tariff comparison intelligence will be integrated to identify the best deals as well as Rightcharge’s home and workplace charging point installation services. 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.
Rightcharge simplifies charging by eliminating the need to track and reconcile multiple receipts from various public charging providers and energy suppliers, saving time for both the business and drivers. Fleets get access to cost and carbon analytics at a company-wide level, allowing businesses to seamlessly align their fleet with sustainability and budget objectives. To ensure a smooth process, Rightcharge assigns a dedicated account manager to support businesses throughout the process.
“Our mission is to empower drivers to go electric by making EV charging easier, more affordable and accessible to all,” said Rightcharge CEO Charlie Cook. “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.”
