Battle Motors, the owner and manufacturer of Crane Carrier trucks and a leader in the development of electric vehicle (EV) technology, partnered with PositivEnergy to install charging stations at municipal accounts across North America.
PositivEnergy will deliver charging stations to municipal accounts serviced by 180 Battle Motors Truck Dealers across North America. The charging stations will provide vehicle-to-grid sequential capable power supplies as well as dispensers for the battery technology in Battle Motors vehicles.
Battle Motors committed to making EV infrastructure installation as turn-key as possible for customers. Battle Motors will also make PositivEnergy charging infrastructure available to all Crane Carrier customers in locations with heavy battery electric vehicle (BEV) usage.
Mike Patterson, CEO Battle Motors states, “The partnership with PostivEnergy allows Battle Motors to provide our customers a one-stop solution for complete fast efficient infrastructure installation. The infrastructure is kicked off at vehicle purchase and installed while the body is being put on the truck.”
An energy solutions provider, PositivEnergy focuses on architecting EV-charging infrastructure and custom energy storage systems at commercial and utility-scale. PositivEnergy will provide EV charging infrastructure to Battle Motors customers. This includes vehicle-to-grid, sequential charge capable dispensers, and power supplies as well as Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) when optimal.
PositiveEnergy CEO Ed Wise says, “The PositiveEnergy partnership with Battle Motors delivers a strategic advantage to Battle Motors dealers who can now order and (provide) best-in-class charging solutions for their customers at point of sale.”
Additionally, Battle Motors commits to accelerating the transition to sustainable energy through manufacturing durable and performance-driven Class 7/8 electric trucks. The 75-year Crane Carrier legacy carries on as the newly rebranded Battle Motors. Battle Motors’ position will help lead the way in the electrification of the vocational and delivery truck markets.
Further, Battle Motors will bring its Class 8 severe-duty electric truck to the market this summer with 12 municipal customers. The Battle-Ready Electric delivers the same comfort, visibility, and reliability as the CNG and diesel-powered trucks; however, it produces lower maintenance costs, reduced noise, and zero carbon emissions. The trucks are available for front, rear, and automated side loader applications within the refuse and recycling space. Finally, the trucks are available in standard and crew cab configurations.
