Vattenfall has entered into e-mobility cooperation with bp and its subsidiary Aral.
The deal enables Vattenfall to get into e-mobility and mixed fleets in Germany and in the Netherlands.
Leveraging the partnership, Vattenfall will be able to introduce a unique hybrid card, for both conventional fueling and electric charging, that will make payment easy.
Vattenfall will also be able to offer Aral’s and BP´s commercial fleet customers installation of wall charging.
EV drivers now have access to more than 110.000 charging points for electric vehicles throughout Europe, of which I8 000 are InCharge, due to the new partnership between Aral and Vattenfall InCharge in Germany and bp in the Netherlands.
The cooperation is an example of how the petrol industry is changing and adapting to a new world and customer demand.
Tomas Björnsson, head of e-mobility at Vattenfall, said: “We are very pleased that we were able to convince Aral and BP of our charging solutions and win them as partners. Electrification of the transport sector is one of the most important measures for achieving the climate protection targets. Together with partners, we are driving forward the switch to e-mobility and we consider partnerships in all our core markets a good way forward.”
“Commercial fleets will make the type of propulsion increasingly dependent on the purpose of the vehicles. With the ‘Aral Fuel & Charge Card’, we are managing a mixed fleet of electric vehicles and vehicles with internal combustion engines easier than ever,” explains Jeroen de Vries, Sales Manager at Aral for fuel cards in Europe.
