Northgate has partnered with electric vehicle (EV) charging platform Monta for its new EV and charger bundle package.
It says that 12 months-plus rental customers, who take an EV and charger package, will now have full access to the Monta app and platform.
Monta’s platform allows Northgate to offer a solution to its customers which brings together domestic, commercial, and public charging in one app.
Monta’s roaming network, searchable via the app, gives access to more than 14,000 charge points across the UK.
Drivers can also access smart charging features which allow them to choose between renewable energy or lower cost charging tariffs, depending on their needs.
There are additional benefits for businesses who want to build a fleet or provide EVs as an employee benefit, says Northgate.
Employers can sponsor their employees' charge point, and instantly reimburse them for charging at home.
Drivers can also pay on the road using a variety of methods such as Google Pay, Apple Pay and a digital wallet that can be topped up by their employer.
As the platform can set up multiple payment methods for drivers using both personal and business payment cards, and a full usage dashboard and reporting suite are included, administration time is reduced for fleet managers, added Northgate.
James Eustace, director of product and marketing at Northgate, said: “Northgate aims to help make customers’ transition to electrification as seamless as possible, and our partnership with Monta is an important step in delivering this aim.
“Monta enables us to offer a truly turn-key solution for our customers which adds further value to our electric LCV rental contract and home charger bundle a single monthly payment.”
Northgate’s 12 months-plus contract includes vehicle rental of between 12 and 60 months for EVs, including any livery or racking and full servicing, maintenance, and breakdown cover.
