PRIVATE hire, courier, and black taxi provider Addison Leehas announced a new cooperation with ChargePoint to install ultra-rapid EV chargers at its West Drayton Fleet Hub.
Located near Heathrow Airport, the West Drayton Fleet Hub is a multipurpose centre servicing Addison Lee vehicles, rolling out driver training, and providing drivers with an ideal location to stop and take a break between journeys. The installation of two ChargePoint ultra-rapid EV chargers, with dual charging capability provides a guaranteed location for four drivers to charge their electric vehicles at once.
ChargePoint, who offer access to over 600,000 places to charge globally, will also provide software to allow Addison Lee partner drivers to see if the stations are currently in use, ensuring they don’t waste valuable time travelling to an unavailable charging point. The drivers will have access to thousands of chargers across London through the ChargePoint app.
With 1,000 EVs already on the fleet, the cooperation with ChargePoint is further supporting Addison Lee’s pledge to electrify its fleet by 2023.
