Milan, June 30, 2021 – Be Charge charging points are now available and usable also through Telepass Pay, further strengthening Be Charge’s leadership position in the growth path of the Italian charging network and increasingly innovative charging services. The agreement is the first of its kind for Telepass and allows it to pursue common objectives, namely to improve environmental sustainability and further contribute to the development of electric mobility. Be Charge is the first charging operator for electric vehicles to enter the ecosystem of services offered by Telepass to motorists.
The two companies intend to work together to further stimulate the growth of electric mobility in Italy and the interoperability agreement signed is only the first step in a collaboration that can also extend in the future in further areas of activity. From today it is therefore even easier to access the Be Charge charging infrastructure, spread throughout the national territory and constantly growing, through the Telepass Pay app and the Be Charge app.
“The partnership with Telepass – comments Paolo Martini, CEO of Be Charge – is important to expand the strategic positioning of our company in the ecosystem of charging services for electric vehicles. This important agreement strengthens Be Charge’s mission by enabling us to pursue common goals for increasingly sustainable mobility. It represents a fundamental step in the evolution of the most innovative services aimed at offering “electric” users an increasingly easy mobility experience. The capillarity of our network, combined with the charging experience that our APP offers and the constant integration with other platforms such as Telepass Pay, aims more and more to contribute to the development of a new paradigm of mobility, still in the initial phase, but in great growth».
“The partnership with Be Charge – comments Gabriele Benedetto, CEO of Telepass – allows us to offer the approximately 300,000 Telepass customers who already drive electric or hybrid cars access to the largest interoperable charging network in Italy, all comfortably through our “Telepass Pay” APP. Telepass’s watchwords for the mobility of the future have always been “smart” and “green”: smart because we can adopt an objectless mode, that is, without cash or cards; green to give space to low-emission or zero-emission vehicles. The partnership with Be Charge allows us at the same time to contribute to the growth of electric mobility in Italy, through collaboration with one of the most important players in the sector that shares with us the same digital and eco-sustainable DNA, enabling integrated, flexible, safe mobility».
