Harbinger, an LA-based vehicle and technology company, announced its charging partnership with Autel Energy. Autel Energy is an energy management company that also provides EV charging solutions. The partnership comes on the tail of both companies’ showing at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. In fact, the show is where Harbinger officially unveiled its company and flagship medium-duty electric truck platform to the world.
Autel Energy will support Harbinger’s pilot program customers with flexible charging solutions. It will also support fleet customers long-term with charging support that interfaces directly with Harbinger’s fleet management interfaces.
“Harbinger’s fully-integrated electric powertrain paired with Autel Energy’s high-quality and fleet-capable EV charging hardware and software is the perfect match to excel in the Class 4 to 7 vehicle segment,” says John Harris, Harbinger CEO. “We look forward to working with Autel Energy to electrify the future of the medium-duty industry.”
FINDING THE RIGHT PARTNER
Finding the right EV charging partner is essential in solving the EV commercial truck puzzle for Harbinger and its customers. Charging technology needs to be flexible, compatible, as well as robust to meet the duty cycles of its fleet partners.
With Autel Energy’s MaxiCharger platform launch at NAIAS, Autel further demonstrated that it can “Power the Planet” as the automotive industry transitions to electrification. The companies share a focus on eliminating barriers to mass adoption and offering seamless connections to the industry’s current operations.
“Autel Energy is one of the most innovative, exciting, and progressive companies I have seen during my 30 years in the automotive space,” says John Thomas COO of Autel Energy North America. “We are leading the industry forward. After understanding Harbinger’s approach to address the needs in the Class 4 to 7 market, we knew it was a company we wanted to partner with because we share a very aligned vision, passion, and mindset.”
“We know the formula for success is to have the best electric truck solution in the market, supported by the best charging systems, back-end tool set, and dashboards for easy and intuitive operations,” Harris says. “After canvasing the available technology, EV charging platforms, and OEMs, it was clear that Autel was the right charging partner. Their customer-centric, vertically integrated approach matches the thinking and DNA of Harbinger.”
