Volkswagen Group of America Implements EV-enabled Comdata Mastercard®
Brentwood, Tennessee - Jul 8, 2022
A solution uniquely developed to address needs of electric vehicles and hybrid fleets
Brentwood, Tenn. (July 08, 2022)— Comdata, Inc., a FLEETCOR company and world leader in payment innovation, announced today a three-year partnership with Volkswagen of America, Inc. (VWGoA), one of the world’s largest manufacturers of passenger cars.
VWGoA has implemented use of the EV-enabled Comdata Mastercard ® and its accompanying features to improve and enhance fleet management operations.
The Comdata Mastercard, uniquely developed to meet the needs of both electric vehicles (EV) and fuel fleets, provides flexibility with a broad network of charging and fueling stations. Additionally, the card offers universal acceptance at all locations that accept Mastercard as a payment form, Comdata’s industry-leading fraud protection control options, and the ability to facilitate EV charging while also providing accessible, actionable, and compelling data.
“Comdata is committed to advancing the best practices and strategies for EV adoption for fleets,” said Bryant Evans, Vice President of Large Market Sales, Comdata. “The Comdata Mastercard is just one example of how our forward-thinking solutions are targeting the consistent issues and challenges facing fleet owners and managers today.”
VWGoA and other Comdata Mastercard customers can enjoy the benefits of better ways to track and pay for EV charging, innovative solutions to address range anxiety, and improved tracking and documentation of charging events.
Comdata’s solution is powered by Motorq, a connected-car data, and analytics company that facilitates the capture of data directly from electric vehicles. This assists fleet managers with proper reimbursement to employees for EV charging costs.
Evans noted that this is just the beginning of a mutually valuable relationship between the two. “We are excited to advance VWGoA’s fleet management operations through our innovative technology, and we look forward to working closely with them to create a successful roadmap to support any existing and future needs.”
