Allstar provides customers access to one of the fastest charging network in the UK for businesses
London, UK – 25th January, 2024 –Allstar, one of the UK’s leading electric vehicle (EV), fuel and business expense payment companies today announces a near 30% increase to the number of charge points available on its multi branded EV charging network. This follows three key new charge point operators joining the Allstar network, including IONITY, Raw Charging, and Weev.
The move means Allstar has grown its overall network size to over 18,000 charge points and more than 28,000 connectors, increasing roaming capabilities for its EV customers around the UK. With a key focus on keeping business vehicles on the road by minimising the time spent charging, 99.5% of Allstar’s charging network is fast, rapid, and ultra-rapid.
This is just another step in Allstar’s plans to have the largest EV network in the UK for businesses, growing the number of charge points by 4,000 across the three new partners.
According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) the UK new car market recorded its best year since the pandemic in 2023, with battery electric vehicles (BEVs) accounting for one in six new cars registered. The majority of these were taken by business and fleet buyers, demonstrating the continuing need to provide critical infrastructure for drivers on the road.
Supporting fleets of all fuel configurations, Allstar Chargepass simplifies payment for EV charging, both at home and on the road, and is the only solution in the UK that allows customers to do both, for electric and mixed fleets. The aim is to provide businesses with the ultimate flexibility across their total fuel and charging expenses as they migrate away from fossil fuels.
Ashley Tate, MD, Allstar Chargepass UK, commented: “It is increasingly clear that businesses are investing in their EV capabilities, and we are committed to supporting them every step of the way. That means ensuring our network meets the changing needs of fleets.”
He added: “That’s why we’ve bolstered our network; not only how we increased the number of charge points by over 30% but ensured that they are the right kind for our drivers, prioritising fast, rapid and ultra rapid capabilities. It’s essential they can not only easily access a charge point but get back on the road as quickly as possible.”
