We have seen a lot of exciting developments that will further accelerate transport electrification. Looking back, we are proud that we - as a community of EV enthusiasts - have accomplished so much already. We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your efforts!
In the last couple of years we have seen our community and public charging network grow rapidly. In 2017 we added a total of 18,000 public charge points to our network, which means that our customers can already use over 80,000 charge points in 28 countries! Our customers can plug into our public network by using our charge card, which leads us to our second huge milestone of the year… Since we were founded in 2009, we have seen our community grow exponentially, and we have already reached over 100,000 activated NewMotion charge cards travelling in EV driver wallets throughout Europe. We are looking forward to reaching the second milestone of 200,000 activated charge cards in the near future!
Charging your car at home, at work or on the go, is not so exceptional anymore. With around 300,000 EVs registered in Europe in 2017, seeing your neighbor plug in their car when they come home is no longer an uncommon sight. This is also reflected in our data, which we like to share with you. Did you know that in 2017, we plugged in our cars over 8 million times? This resulted in a total of 62 million kWh’s being pumped into these vehicles. That’s amazing! But, even more important…what has been the actual impact of us joining the electric movement? Well, we do believe that saving over 30 million liters of petrol is quite the achievement. Besides that, by charging that many kWh’s, we were able to drive over 410 million kilometers completely emission free. Talk about green and clean!
Since NewMotion was founded, we have had the delight to meet thousands of enthusiastic EV drivers, who kept us on the ball and enabled us to perfect our products and services. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all that we have been able to achieve together!
