Navistar partners with In-Charge Energy to provide charging infrastructure, consulting services

Navistar’s NEXT eMobility Solutions business unit has signed a master services agreement with In-Charge Energy, an energy solutions company based in Los Angeles, California, to provide charging infrastructure and consulting services to Navistar and its electric vehicle customers.

Since its launch in October, Navistar says NEXT has focused its eMobility development on a comprehensive “four Cs” approach – Consulting, Construction, Charging and Connecting.

“With electric vehicles, it’s important to understand that we can provide the very best bus or truck for our customers, but if they don’t have a partner to show them how to operate it, charge it or take care of it in the long run, it likely won’t be a successful deployment,” said Jason Gies, director of business development for Navistar. “This partnership ensures that IC Bus and International Truck customers have the infrastructure support they need to ultimately be successful in electric.”

Electrifying a fleet requires much more than just purchasing an electric vehicle. Customers need to consider the impacts on maintenance and facilities such as increased electricity demand, utility upgrades and other factors.

“The total cost of ownership with electric vehicles promises to be less than conventional vehicles; however, that is only possible with well-designed charging infrastructure and a trusted partner,” said Cameron Funk, chief executive officer of In-Charge. “Navistar has the right vision and In-Charge is pleased to provide their end-to-end charging solution.”
