Silvey Fleet launches EV payment solution and consultancy service

EV charging a blue car

Silvey Fleet has launched an electric vehicle (EV) charging payment solution and a new consultancy service to help fleet managers transition to electric.

The new card provides users the ability to pay for EV charging, as well as refuelling with hydrogen, petrol, and diesel.

The new offering has been introduced to help fleet managers incorporate fully electric and/or hybrid vehicles into their fleets and control the use of all types of fuel on a single payment card.

The new card will enable fleet managers to pay for EV charging across a multi-branded charging network such as ESB EV Solutions, Engenie, and Source London, amongst others, it said.

Miriam James, managing director at Silvey Fleet, said: “We are committed to providing the right products for our customers along with a service specifically designed to help fleet operators understand which diesel and/or petrol vehicles could be easily replaced with an electric alternative.

“As a result of the close association we have with our customers, our team can, in conjunction with fleet management, create a fleet electrification plan that meets the needs of the company.

“During the past five years we have been researching and embracing new technologies which we believe will provide fleet managers with a wide range of useable information using data compiled through our own mobile app - Miles Monitor."

The company said it can use information from a fleet’s existing telematics system, by analysing driving habits and routes to fleet managers choose the right electric alternatives.

As part of the assessment, Silvey Fleet will identify the procurement and installation costs – exploring how they could be spread and identifying where the advantage of any tax benefits or incentives could be taken.

They will be able to project how switching, or adding an EV, to a fleet will save the company money through less maintenance and lower tax, when compared with traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, it said.

Silvey Fleet has also partnered with Allstar to become a reseller of their One Electric fuel card, that incorporates all fuels.

“By having just one fuel card, fleet managers not only have a complete overview of their fleet, but also all transactions will appear on one invoice – resulting in less administration time being spent compiling data or paying multiple suppliers,” James said.
