Fuel card provider The Fuel Store has added an electric vehicle charge card to its range of cards, expanding accessibility to EV charging options.

The Paua card is compatible with over 43,000 charge point connectors and gives users access to almost three-quarters of the UK’s rapid charging network.

Jamie Bridgen, chief executive at The Fuel Store, said: “We are thrilled to have teamed up with Paua to offer an EV charge card to our customers. According to the SMMT in November last year 77.4% of the new BEVs (battery electric vehicles) on the road were fleet or business-owned, so the market is undoubtedly growing.”

Users of the Paua card can also access an interactive charge point locator and map, allowing them to find the nearest EV charging stations.

Paua chief executive Niall Riddell said: “Collaborating with The Fuel Store is a significant milestone in enabling multi-fuel fleets to access the UK’s largest EV charge card whilst continuing to fuel their diesel vehicles.”
