Utrecht-based startup facilitating super-charging network for electric vans and trucks, Leap24 has raised €4.25 million seed investment. The round was led by Yard Energy Investments. The fresh capital will enable the deployment of multiple locations throughout Northwestern Europe, where each location will operate with at least six fast-charging parking spaces.
Founded in 2021 by Pelle Schlichting and Ferry Bosgra, the startup is on a mission to make the transition to clean mobility as easy as possible. Talking about how Leap24 will expand charging network, Pelle Schlichting said: “With the current funding, we can now acquire and develop multiple locations, which will help us to establish a fast-charging network in Northwestern Europe. The first stations will open in The Netherlands during the second quarter of this year.”
Clean mobility should be available to everyone. There should be a charging infrastructure to make clean mobility possible, so the switch to electric vans and trucks is as smooth as possible.
In 2025, large metropolitan areas will introduce zero-emission urban distribution zone. Hence, businesses will need locations to charge their vehicles quickly. The ambition challenges companies to make their transport and logistics more sustainable. The platform helps speed up the process by equipping the zero-emission zones with fast chargers.
