Fastned partners with The New Motion
Fastcharging at Fastned now possible with The New Motion charge card
Amsterdam, 10 May 2016. As of today it is possible to charge at Fastned with the charge card of The New Motion. After entering the card number in the Fastned app once, EV drivers can easily start and end charging sessions with the Fastned app. Payments are handled with the collective invoice of The New Motion, which streamlines administration of the customer.
Fastned CEO Michiel Langezaal: "Electric driving is becoming more and more attractive. And it's all about convenience and freedom. By partnering with The New Motion, the largest provider of charge cards in the Netherlands, we reduce the administrative burden of EV drivers. And they have the freedom to drive anywhere.”
Sytse Zuidema, CEO The New Motion: "Our focus on the continued expansion of the number of charging points in Europe, and the ease of the transaction, is highly valued by our customers. By partnering with Fastned we make sure that The New Motion continues to support the most comprehensive network of charging points in the Netherlands. We are very pleased that drivers with a pass of The New Motion can now easily pay at the fast charging network of Fastned.”
The connection is operational, so EV drivers with a The New Motion pass can start using this new possibility directly. Last year MultiTank Card and Travelcard already connected their fuel cards to the fast charge network of Fastned.

Fastned is building a European network of fast-charging stations where all electric cars can charge within 20 minutes. The stations are located at high traffic locations along the highways and in cities. This will give electric cars the freedom to drive across Europe. As of today, Fastned has 63 stations operational in The Netherlands and is working on expanding its fast charging network to the rest of Europe. Fastned is preparing the construction of fast charging stations in Germany, The United Kingdom and Belgium. Fastned is listed on the Nxchange stock exchange.
Fastned is rolling out its network of fast charging stations in response to the rapidly increasing numbers of EVs in Europe. Car manufacturers such as Tesla, Audi, Volvo, Aston Martin, BMW, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Porsche, Volkswagen, Mercedes, Ford, General Motors, Renault and other car manufacturers are investing billions of Euros in the development of, and production capacity for EVs. More and more EVs are hitting the roads, which drives the need for charging infrastructure. Fastned is responding to this development by building the service stations of the future. Co-founder and CEO Michiel Langezaal: “We are the Shell of the future, only our energy comes from the sun and the wind.”
