(Abridged version of Allstar’s press release)
24 September 2019
Allstar Business Solutions, the UK’s leading fuel management company, has today launched its electric vehicle (EV) charging payment solution, the Allstar One Electric card. This new card supports the needs of customers switching to full electric or hybrid company vehicles.
The new EV payment solution combines all the benefits of the Allstar One card, including access to the UK’s largest fuel network, savings across the Discount Diesel network and one HMRC-compliant invoice for all transactions. The new card looks to the future by adding the ability to pay for EV charging across a multi-branded electric charging network.
All of Engenie’s UK-wide rapid charging stations will be available to use on the Allstar One Electric card network.
Key benefits include:
- One payment method for all fuel types giving full visibility of spend
- Simplified admin with one HMRC- compliant invoice for all transactions and fuel types
- Access to a growing multi-branded network of charging points helping reduce range anxiety
Allstar One Electric answers the direct call from fleet managers who want to move to a combination of all fuel types on one fuel card. It also compliments the existing ability to pay for hydrogen on the Allstar card too.
Paul Holland, MD for UK Fuel at FLEETCOR, commented: “Those managing fleets that combine petrol, diesel and electric vehicles are faced with many challenges, needing to manage multiple accounts and payment methods to ensure their fleet has access to a convenient network for all its refuelling needs. On top of this, they are met by varying account structures, different pricing, separate invoicing and reporting, leading to a lot of administration that leaves fleet managers and owners without the necessary controls to run their business. With our card, we want to ensure our customers are supported with convenient payment solutions to keep their vehicles on the road.”
Speaking about the Allstar One Electric card, Ian Johnston, CEO at Engenie, one of the first networks to sign up, said: “Low running costs, minimal maintenance, zero tailpipe emissions, and generous tax incentives means more businesses than ever are going electric. Signing up to the Allstar One Electric Card will open up our reliable and renewably powered network of rapid charging points to Allstar’s impressive portfolio of UK fleets.
