Tusker, a provider of salary sacrifice car schemes, approached Zapmap because the company wanted to provide its drivers with greater support when switching to an electric vehicle.
With adoption of electric cars rising, and salary sacrifice presenting a tax-efficient way for drivers to access EVs, Tusker was keen to ensure it was providing its customers with first-class information about electric vehicles.
In light of this, Tusker chose to work with Zapmap to help its customers locate their nearest charging points, filter these chargers by type, power and availability, as well as plan journeys.
“It was a natural partnership for us to work with Zapmap as one of the leading sources of info for EV drivers.”

As a result, the partnership saw Zapmap’s charge point map integrated as an iFrame into Tusker’s new website. This provided Tusker customers with the ability to search, plan and filter for charge points.
Customers on Tusker’s website were also able to take advantage of Zapmap’s cost calculator, which allows drivers to input vehicle types and mileage to discover the potential savings available to EVs compared to petrol or diesel cars.
“Tusker has a commitment to providing our customers with as much information as possible about going electric, so it was a natural partnership for us to work with Zapmap as one of the leading sources of info for EV drivers,” said Tusker CEO Paul Gilshan.
“Our partnership with Zapmap offers great benefits to our drivers, as Zapmap’s advanced charger mapping removes yet another worry for those new to electric vehicles.
“Although our research has shown the majority of drivers do not need to charge their vehicles more than once a week, with Zapmap, finding chargers while out and about or planning longer journeys is now a much easier task.”
Ultimately, as well as adding a dedicated salary sacrifice page to the Zapmap website, Tusker’s partnership with Zapmap helped to give its customers greater confidence in making the switch to electric.
