Addison Lee, a London-based private hire, courier and black cab provider, plans to have an all-electric fleet by 2023. The company already has 450 Volkswagen ID.4s operating in London and hopes to increase this fleet to 1,000 by the end of the year. year

Addison Lee has now announced that it will be using the bp pulse fleet charging network. Addison Lee drivers will now have access to bp pulse EV Fleet charging stations at Park Lane and Gatwick Airport. The Park Lane center has 22 50kW charging points conveniently located for private drivers. Gatwick Center has six 150kW charging points and eight 50kW charging points available to airport users and taxi drivers, as well as local businesses and residents.

“Access to charging infrastructure continues to be the number one challenge for drivers transitioning to electric vehicles,” said Addison Lee CEO Liam Griffin. “Subscribing to bp pulse gives our driver partners access to an expanding network of charging stations across London. As they expand their charging infrastructure, we look forward to working with bp pulse in the future.”
