LEASEPLAN and Chargemaster have announced a new partnership. It will provide LeasePlan customers with access to charge points at home, at work and on the road.

Under the terms of the agreement, drivers choosing a new EV from LeasePlan can select LeasePlan’s e-mobility solution with the option of a Home Charger Package.

The package includes a UK-made Chargemaster Homecharge unit together with a subscription to POLAR, the UK’s largest public charging network with in excess of 6000 chargepoints. This lasts for the lifetime of the car lease agreement.

LeasePlan has included the e-mobility package within the monthly lease cost. It includes a Homecharge unit installed at the driver’s home (if eligible for the government’s Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme grant), inclusive of warranty and support to match the lifetime of the vehicle lease agreement.

For businesses wanting to provide charge point facilities at work, there will be the offer of site surveys, installation of Chargemaster  charge points and support, as well as system access for billing and reporting.

Matt Dyer, Managing Director, LeasePlan said:

“We’re seeing an increased demand for low-emission vehicles from customers looking to lower their overall fleet emissions and improve air quality.

“Our latest partnership with Chargemaster is just one of the ways we’re making it easier for them to make the switch to electric and achieve their goals. Previous concerns around charging anxiety have prevented this move in the past – but the final piece in the puzzle, bringing together the vehicle and all forms of charging, means we can offer a comprehensive EV solution to help speed up the transition to electric motoring.”

David Martell, Chief Executive of Chargemaster, added:

“We are very excited about this new partnership, which is a market-first in offering home and public charging within the monthly lease cost and offering our workplace charging solutions via LeasePlan, to create a one-stop-shop solution for its customers.

“As the government looks towards 2040, it no doubt wants to see market-based solutions to support electric vehicle charging at home, at work, and on the road, and this new partnership is a great example of two market-leading companies working together to deliver fantastic combined value and service for customers.”
