Volvo Trucks North America recently announced a new program to provide streamlined access to electric vehicle (EV) charging offerings for dealers and fleet customers. The Vendor Direct Shipping program provides customers the opportunity to procure mobile and fixed charging hardware solutions directly from Volvo Trucks dealers when they purchase Volvo VNR Electric trucks.
Customers will have the opportunity to purchase charging hardware when they purchase a Volvo VNR Electric truck. Customers will have two chargers from Heliox to choose from initially: a 50kW Mobile DC Fast Charger (Single Port CCS1) or a 180kW Flex DC Fast Charger (up to three CCS-1 dispensers). Volvo Trucks will continue to expand its offerings and partners as more and more fleets begin to adopt battery-electric trucks.
Customers participating in the program can also work with participating vendors to develop tailored and scalable infrastructure to ensure the battery-electric trucks are being charged up efficiently while making the best use of available power. Heliox is the first provider to participate and has a team of EV charging experts and partners to ensure the entire project goes smoothly, from delivery, setup, commissioning, testing, training, operations, and beyond.
