30 May 2018, AMSTERDAM – NewMotion, Europe’s largest provider of smart charging solutions for electric vehicles, today announces it is expanding further into Europe as a result of the partnership with Arval. This expansion will allow even more private customers and businesses to get access to its leading European smart charging network. Norway is the first country to benefit from the roll-out of this joint initiative. It is part of NewMotion’s strategy to expand into new markets and consolidate its position as Europe’s largest smart charging provider.
NewMotion’s growing European presence will now include the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Germany, the UK, and Norway. Another 4 European countries are expected to be added from the second quarter of this year. Combined with an open roaming agreement, NewMotion customers already have access to more than 70,000 EV charge points across 25 countries internationally.
To support the larger ambitions of the company three well-respected industry professionals have recently joined the NewMotion management team. New CFO Marit Eshuis, COO Claire Scott and interim CCO Herman Keijsers will help power the company’s goal to be the European frontrunner in the new energy and mobility landscape.
In particular, NewMotion will focus on consolidation in existing markets, the growth of client base and further expansion into new markets.
Sytse Zuidema, CEO, NewMotion, commented: “This is an incredibly exciting time for NewMotion. Our work with Arval leverages our network in Germany, UK, and France and has taken us into Norway now and soon we will be adding 4 more European countries to our portfolio. This expansion aligns with our longer-term growth plans and demonstrates the huge investment we have already made towards creating innovative, customer-centric smart charging solutions.
Electric driving is part of a much bigger revolution and Europe has started to transition to e-mobility. Just look at the increasing EV sales across the European countries. NewMotion sees itself as a key player in this new EV landscape which comes with new ways of dealing with energy and mobility challenges. Changing consumer behaviour and attitudes is a long-term goal and NewMotion is here to make a positive difference.”
