NewMotion has signed a deal with car manufacturer Mazda to become its preferred UK electric vehicle (EV) charge point provider.
As part of the partnership, owners of Mazda MX-30 vehicles – which are set to hit the UK market in early 2021 – will be offered a NewMotion home charger as well as access to NewMotion’s public network of 2,500 charge points.
Owners will also have the option of adding NewMotion’s dynamic power management to their charging package, with the EV charging company lauding the solution as helping to manage home energy consumption by monitoring the total electricity consumption in a home and adjusting the charging speed accordingly.
NewMotion will also deliver EV charge points at UK Mazda dealerships, with installation work to begin this summer.
The charge points delivered as part of the collaboration will be a range of 22kW AC and 25kW DC chargers, which will ensure Mazda’s infrastructure is “futureproofed for forthcoming plug-in EV models that are capable of charging at faster speeds”, the company said.
Alan McCleave, UK general manager of NewMotion, said that partnering with Mazda is “really exciting” due to the manufacturer being a “brand known for innovation”.
“We look forward to supporting Mazda customers, their dealerships and employees with the move to e-mobility,” he added.
This marks the third partnership announced by NewMotion in recent weeks, having already signed deals with Alphabet to provide its customers with home and workplace charging and Aldi to install chargers at its stores.
Last week, it published a report examining the current EV landscape, in which it described roaming interoperability as the “backbone” of public European charging networks.
