Electric Last Mile Solutions Inc. in Troy, which manufactures electric commercial vehicles, is partnering with California’s EVgo, operator of the nation’s largest public fast charging network for EVs, to deliver EVgo’s charging solutions to ELMS’ Urban Delivery commercial EV fleets.
ELMS and EVgo are developing a preferred fleet charging program to support ELMS’ commercial EVs as they reach customers. The bundled turnkey offering from EVgo targets large-scale deployments of its charging solutions for ELMS customers adopting fleet electrification.
The solution offering includes transition planning, hardware procurement, infrastructure deployment, software and networking, operations and maintenance, and systems integration.
“EVgo is thrilled to partner with Electric Last Mile Solutions to deliver customized charging solutions to ELMS fleet customers going electric,” says Jonathan Levy, chief commercial officer at EVgo. “Working together through partnerships like this one is the best way to bring the benefits of fleet electrification to more segments, from last-mile package delivery to campus use cases and more.”
EVgo and ELMS say they share a commitment to maximizing operational performance in a sustainable manner. EVgo says it can ensure that customers get the most out of their vehicles whether they need Level 2 and DC fast charging solutions at their depots, or dedicated charging hubs away from base. Customers who purchase ELMS vehicles will be able to take advantage of EVgo’s public charging network of more than 800 nationwide locations.
“It is imperative that our commercial EV customers have a charging capability aligned and integrated into their workflow so their vehicles experience zero unplanned downtime,” says Jonathan Ballon, chief strategy and digital officer at ELMS. “EVgo’s fleet portfolio and growing nationwide presence of public Level 2 and DC fast charging makes them an ideal partner to deliver on our shared customers’ expectations as they build out their EV fleets.”
