NewMotion, a leader in smart EV charging solutions and a Shell group company, has been selected as a preferred EV charging supplier for Europe by fleet management company, LeasePlan. Under the deal, NewMotion will provide LeasePlan customers with EV charging solutions at home, the workplace, and on the go.

This partnership is a significant step for NewMotion to operate more than half a million charge points for businesses, fleets, at retail sites and customer’s homes by 2025.

The first phase of the roll-out will see LeasePlan customers in the UK, Germany, Norway and Sweden, then extending across other European markets.

NewMotion will support LeasePlan with the installation of charge points, back-office technology for controlling its charge points and a charge card to access public chargers.

LeasePlan has approximately 1.9 million vehicles under management in over 30 countries.

It has set itself the goal of achieving net zero tailpipe emissions from its entire funded fleet by 2030, in support of the Paris Agreement.

Melanie Lane, CEO at NewMotion says, “We’re really excited to support LeasePlan, one of Europe’s largest players in leasing, in their efforts to scale up e-mobility. To make the transition seamless for both businesses and their employees, companies need a smart charging ecosystem that helps them to monitor and control their charging.”
