The Shyft Group debuts a portable EV charging solution

The Shyft Group recently introduced the Blue Arc Power Cube, a fully portable remote-controlled charging station with onboard energy storage to serve a variety of needs for commercial vehicle fleets and other end uses.

Understanding that lack of EV infrastructure is one of the roadblocks to adoption, the Power Cube offers a mobile, customizable, commercial grade EV charger that does not need to be connected to the grid. The Shyft Group explained that the Power Cube is designed for a fast and flexible deployment model is customizable, offering varying configurations to meet customers’ unique needs. It carries 3MW of onboard power and its Level 2 and Fast-DC charging capabilities can have vehicles up and running in one to two hours. The Power Cube is also supplemented with wind and solar power, including panels to track the sun for maximum exposure and charging, to ensure sustained service despite power grid failures.

The Power Cube provides clean, responsible energy when and where it is needed, the Shyft Group said in a press release. When the job is done or there is a desire to move the charging station to a different location, it gets picked up and moved – an ideal solution for fleet managers who lease their facilities and cannot pursue permanent renovations. This portability also creates possibilities for adaptability to other end uses.

The Blue Arc product ecosystem includes a commercial-grade EV chassis and the Blue Arc delivery van, a 100% battery-powered Class 3 electric commercial delivery vehicle designed for high-frequency, last-mile delivery fleets. With a high degree of configurability, the all-electric chassis is adaptable to last-mile delivery, work truck, mass transit, recreational vehicle and other emerging EV markets.
