Volvo Trucks North America is pleased to announce a new program to provide streamlined access to electric vehicle (EV) charging offerings for dealers and fleet customers. The Vendor Direct Shipping program allows customers to procure mobile and fixed charging hardware solutions directly from Volvo Trucks dealers when they purchase Volvo VNR Electric trucks.
“The Vendor Direct Shipping program is a simple and effective method of ordering charging hardware for customers purchasing VNR Electric trucks. The Volvo Trucks dealer will be able to log in to the parts portal and order chargers just as they would to order any truck part,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America. “As we’ve said from the beginning, purchasing a VNR Electric is more than just a truck. It’s a total transportation solution, and providing our customers with reliable charging hardware is a key pillar in that process.”
Beginning this October, customers will have the opportunity to purchase charging hardware when buying a Volvo VNR Electric truck. Customers will initially choose from two chargers from Heliox: 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 fleets 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.
“Heliox is excited to mature our partnership with Volvo Trucks. After many great projects over the past year, this agreement will make it exponentially easier for Volvo Trucks dealers and end users to procure everything they need to kickstart their EV fleet projects, said David Aspinwall, president of Heliox North America. “By giving them simplified access to our full portfolio of CCS-1 products, future e-mobility programs can happen faster and more efficiently.”
