SME fleet drivers ruing the loss of the home grant for EV chargers, can get an electric vehicle (EV) charge point for free.
That’s thanks to a new partnership between flexible subscription provider Mycardirect and Egg, a subscription-based EV charge point provider.
The Egg subscription is covered if an EV driver takes a 12 month car subscription with Mycardirect, reducing a further barrier to those SME fleets that want to decarbonise by going electric.
Commenting on the offer, Mycardirect CEO Duncan Chumley said:
Our fully flexible subscription service already offers a peace of mind proposition when making the switch from petrol or diesel to electric. The inclusion of Egg’s home EV charging subscription takes another potential barrier out of the equation. We now anticipate further EV growth within the Mycardirect fleet.
Gareth Greppellini, B2B Director at Egg, added:
Mycardirect and Egg share some great synergies, including our shared aim to make driving an EV simple and affordable so drivers will make the switch with confidence. We are delighted to have entered this partnership which will enable Mycardirect customers to charge their EVs in the most cost-efficient and convenient way – at home.
Mycardirect recently announced that 28% of its fleet was electric compared with the UK market mix of 14%.
