Allstar Business Solutions Enables Electronic Payments for Commercial Electric Vehicle Use with Allstar One Electric

Allstar Business Solutions, the UK’s leading fuel management company, has 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.

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.

This is supported by the recent study, Navigating the Alternatively Fuelled Future, which was written in response to requests from Allstar customers to help them better understand the impact, opportunities and challenges they may have when introducing alternative fuels (AF) into their fleet.

Paul Holland, MD 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.”

Allstar’s growing EV charging network includes Engenie, Source London, The GeniePoint Network and ESB EV Solutions.

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.

Christophe Arnaud, Managing Director at Source London, another signatory, added: “Source London is committed to improving the Capital’s air quality. Clearly, convenience and charge point availability are key for residents and businesses when it comes to making the shift to EVs. Allstar’s payment solution is the future for an accessible network, and we are proud as London’s leading charging network to help drive it.”

Alex Bamberg, Managing Director, EV Solutions, Engenie, commented: “Providing nationally accessible, easy to use, reliable refuelling facilities for electric vehicle drivers is critical in supporting the smooth transition to clean transport and improving air quality across the UK.”

Niall Hogan, Managing Director of ESB EV Solutions, said: “With over 100 rapid chargers across London and Coventry, ESB EV Solutions is delighted to partner with Allstar Business Solutions to create a brighter, low-carbon future for all the communities we serve.” 

Allstar Business Solutions, will be exhibiting the Allstar One Electric card at Tomorrow’s Fleet Zone – Road to Zero at Fleet Live, 8th – 9th October at the NEC, Birmingham. New to Fleet Live this year, this brand-new featured area showcases some suppliers that are helping businesses to prepare for the future.
