En-route electric vehicle charging network evyve has become the tenth network to go live on Zapmap’s Zap-Pay service.
As of last week evyve, with its network of predominantly rapid chargers, is now fully up and running on Zap-Pay. The completed integration means that ten charge point operators across the UK are now Zap-Pay enabled. evyve joins live Zap-Pay partners Osprey, ESB Energy, char.gy, GeniePoint, Mer, MFG EV Power, Fastned, Alfa Power and Connected Kerb in making payment easy for electric car drivers.
As well as being able to search for charge points, plan longer journeys, and share updates with other EV drivers, Zapmap users can now pay quickly and easily for their EV charging on all ten networks up and down the UK.
evyve is developing a nationwide network of rapid and ultra-rapid charging locations powered by 100% renewable energy, and is committed to providing a seamless customer experience.
The charging provider currently operates more than 200 chargers covering areas from Aberdeen to Eastbourne – primarily at retail and leisure outlets, business parks and restaurants – following partnerships with Greene King, the UK’s largest Pub Operator and Peel L&P, which includes strategically located retail sites within the UK.
Working in partnership with leading pub operator Greene King, evyve is delivering an ambitious rollout programme across its UK portfolio. Indeed, with a committed pipeline including developers, retailers and sports venues, evyve is targeting 10,000 charge points by 2030.
James Moat, CEO at evyve, said: “We are pleased to see this integration go live and delighted to finally add our network to the Zap-Pay platform.
“We already consider Zapmap an important partner for charge point identification and route planning, but it is great to see progressive tools such as Zap-Pay being developed in-house to really tie the offering together and provide a great mobility service to the public.”
Alex Earl, Commercial Director at Zapmap, said: “Not so long ago, we heard a message coming loud and clear from electric car drivers across the UK – make paying for charging simple. That was exactly why we launched Zap-Pay, and set about signing up key charging networks up and down the country.
“As the tenth network to go live on Zap-Pay, I’m very pleased that evyve has now come online as a fully fledged payment partner. With usage levels of Zap-Pay continually increasing, we expect to see Zap-Pay utilisation jump still further as the summer progresses.
“The addition of another nationwide charging provider will certainly be of great value for electric car drivers, whether they’re undertaking longer journeys or simply topping up at their destination.”
