Motiv Power Systems and EverCharge have agreed to incorporate EverCharge charging stations and smart-charging power optimization solutions into the Motiv Energy suite of solutions for commercial EV fleets.
Motiv will offer customers the option to bundle chargers with EVs, and will serve as primary support for fleet operators using the combination of Motiv EVs, Motiv Energy charging (by EverCharge), and SmartPower load management, which is tailored to work seamlessly with Motiv vehicles.
An expanded set of joint products is planned. Motiv will use real-time data from onboard truck telematics and load management software from the charging stations to tailor charging packages for various fleet usage needs. The goal is to provide customers with a variety of pricing and optimization options based on factors including fleet profiles, geography, routing requirements, cost, facility loads and deployment approach.
“The goal is to help customers build a charging infrastructure where fleets can make use of every minute of available non-peak energy without raising the peak demand of each facility,” said Tim Krauskopf, CEO, Motiv. “EverCharge brings deep expertise in large-scale load management to Motiv’s fleet customers. Their SmartPower management technology has the potential to save commercial fleets hundreds of thousands of dollars over alternative methods, and ensure every truck in the fleet is fully charged for work each morning.”
“At EverCharge we seek to create the best possible end user experience,” said Jason Appelbaum, CEO of EverCharge. “Expanding integration between the vehicle manufacturer and charging enables significant optimizations for customers. Our partnership will allow Motiv to work closer with their customers to reduce costs through data-driven decision-making.”
