Pod Point partners with Pendragon Vehicle Management
Pod Point has signed a three-year partnership with leading fleet management business, Pendragon Vehicle Management (PVM). The agreement will see Pod Point become PVM’s preferred EV home chargepoint supplier, for new and existing customers of its fleet of electric and hybrid vehicles.
Once the EV has been ordered through PVM, Pod Point will carry out the consultation, delivery, installation, and activation of the home charger liaising directly with PVM’s EV leasing customers. Pod Point’s team will manage the process end-to-end, from driver referral through to installation, reducing the time usually spent by company fleet managers in arranging charger installations on behalf of their employees.
Neal Francis, Managing Director at PVM said: “We are seeing increasing demand for our BEV fleet and expect to see this trend going into 2023 and beyond. The salary sacrifice scheme continues to offer an attractive option for drivers looking to make the transition. As our first chargepoint partnership, we wanted to work with a trusted brand and chose Pod Point because of its reputation for excellent customer service, as well as its reliable and easy to use network.”
Commenting on the partnership, Erik Fairbairn, CEO of Pod Point said: “Pendragon Vehicle Management has a long standing reputation and has been helping UK businesses reduce the cost and burden of operating their fleets for over three decades. We’re thrilled to be working with them as a preferred chargepoint supplier.”
Pendragon customers also benefit from Pod Point’s public charging network of over 7,300 charging bays.
