XL Fleet has entered into a partnership with a commercial EVSE (electric vehicle supply equipment) supplier to begin the launch of its XL Grid division.
XL Grid will provide charging infrastructure, energy storage and power solutions for electrified fleets. XL Fleet customers can now purchase XL Grid charging systems separately or as part of an order for vehicles with the company’s electrified powertrain.
XL Fleet currently has over 200 fleet customers across the U.S. and Canada and the company says it expects it will require at least 100,000 charging stations in the next several years. XL Fleet says XL Grid will provide an array of software, hardware and strategic partnerships to power a complete “electrification as a service” solution.
