A new partnership between the UK’s fastest growing parking technology provider YourParkingSpace and EVBox, one of the world’s leading EV charging solutions companies, will revolutionise how and where motorists can charge their electric vehicle.
In a unique move for the UK market, it will ultimately see the roll-out of pre-bookable EV park and charge points across the country, including at locations in the retail and hospitality sectors, meaning motorists know that a charge point will be available when they arrive.
The partnership follows a successful trial at the Holiday Inn Express Bicester, operated by Atlas Hotels, and is set to drive YourParkingSpace’s ambition of ensuring that UK motorists are never more than 20 minutes away from an available charge point, which can be booked and paid for in advance through the YourParkingSpace app.
Harrison Woods, CEO at YourParkingSpace.co.uk, said: “Utilising our industry-leading technology YourParkingSpace is turning parking assets into connected mobility hubs. This partnership with EVBox is hugely exciting, enabling us to rapidly scale the deployment of charging stations for electric vehicles, scooters and other emerging micro-mobility services.”
According to The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, 108,205 battery electric vehicles and 66,877 plug-in hybrids were sold in the UK in 2020 alone, up 185 per cent and 91 per cent respectively on the year before.
