Xos shows off second mobile charging solution at ACT Expo

The second generation mobile charging solution is deployable and scalable without need for permanent infrastructure.

Xos, an electric truck manufacturer and fleet services provider, unveiled the second generation Xos Hub, a deployable, mobile charging solution that enables flexible and scalable access to DC fast charging without the need for permanent infrastructure.

The second generation hub features integrated battery storage with an energy capacity of 400 kWh and an increase in charger output by 60%, from 25kW to 40kW, resulting in faster charge times for EVs, according to the company. The five CCS 1 charge heads enable the Hub to charge up to five electric vehicles at once and are compatible with both commercial and passenger electric vehicles.

Additional features of the Hub include a 43% shorter footprint than its predecessor, from 28 ft. to 16 ft., and enhanced safety features such as the addition of circuit protection and an emergency stop button. The introduction of software and a telematics device help determine the best charging times for the Hub based on off-peak and peak hours, enabling a full charge in five hours and helping mitigate electricity costs, the company noted in a recent press release.

Xos notes that the second generation hub was designed, engineered, and tested over a 12-month period with customer feedback and requirements in mind. Technology highlights on the Hub include over-the-air software updates and seamless integration with the Xosphere fleet management platform.

Additional testing is underway to make the Hub eligible for federal and state funding. Currently, the first unit of the second generation Xos Hub is in operation with a major parcel delivery operator in Northern California.
