Centrica offers new ‘virtual fuel card’ for electric fleet charging

New Fleet Charging Management system enables drivers to charge their commercial vehicles whilst working remotely

Aimed at fleet drivers, the new app acts as a ‘virtual fuel card’ making it possible to plug into any standard charger, whether at home, the workplace or on the road – and be automatically reimbursed for the charging costs.

With payroll integration, the driver is automatically reimbursed while fleet managers receive monthly statements detailing all charging transactions. It can also identify and exclude any private vehicle charging on the same point.

We have begun taking delivery of the first of 3,000 new Vauxhall Vivaro-e vans, which will form the largest electrified van fleet in the UK. To ensure our colleagues are able to charge cost effectively, we’ve begun to roll out home charging points to our fleet EV drivers. This virtual fuel card solution means it’s not just cheaper than petrol and diesel vehicles in terms of fuel costs, it is also easier to administer.
