NewMotion has announced a roaming partnership with on-street charge point operator, Char.gy adding electric vehicle charge points to its UK roaming network.
Currently 450 connections have been added, a number which is expected to more than double in the coming months as Char.gy expands its network.
Char.gy makes use of existing electric infrastructure on public streets to install charge points on lamp-posts and satellite bollards, providing a solution for customers without private charge points. Its network currently spans residential areas of London, Buckinghamshire and Coventry, with other cities being added later in 2020.
The partnership with Char.gy follows a series of announcements from NewMotion as it scales up both its 2,500+ strong UK roaming charge point network and its own operated network. This summer, NewMotion bolstered its UK presence with partnerships with Aldi, Mazda and Alphabet, as well as several roaming agreements.
“We are pleased to welcome Char.gy as a roaming partner as we work together to offer more public charging options for our customers across the UK,” said NewMotion UK GM, Alan McCleave.
“A network of charge points is vital for existing and prospective EV drivers. Through roaming partnerships such as this one with Char.gy we help create access to the ever growing public charging network for plug-in drivers.”
The Char.gy network is compatible with the apps of Shell Recharge and EV Charging by NewMotion, which is available now.
Via these apps, drivers can charge at points operated by 17 operators on the NewMotion UK roaming network with a single NewMotion card.
