Lightning eMotors Unveils Next-generation Mobile Charger for Commercial and Consumer Electric Vehicles

Lightning eMotors announced the unveiling of its second-generation Lightning Mobile chargers for commercial and consumer electric vehicles (EV).

The mobile DC fast charger offers deployment of charging capabilities where static charging stations are not possible or insufficient. Designed to accommodate a number of use-cases, these chargers benefit fleets without the constraints associated with installing static charging stations.

Each modular unit offers between 105 to 420 kWh battery capacity; each also provides the option of up to five DC fast-charging outputs. The new systems are currently available to order for delivery in late 2022.

“We’re incredibly excited to bring our next-generation Lightning Mobile charging solution to the market to address the growing need for readily available, mobile, and flexible DC fast- charging,” Lightning eMotors CEO Tim Reeser says. “Lightning Mobile provides a much-needed charging solution for everything from mobile disaster relief and rescue to intermittent charging points at facilities like sports stadiums, which need an EV charging and power solution in various locations. It can also serve as a short or medium-term charging solution for fleets to rapidly deploy EVs while waiting for permanent infrastructure to be installed.”

SUPPORTING EV FLEETS

Lightning eMotors’ engineers developed the next-generation Lightning Mobile solution over a 12-month period. The engineers developed the next-generation solution using its experience from operating the first-generation prototype. They rigorously tested the prototype and its capabilities to develop this next generation charging capability. As a result, the charger has proved to be an ideal solution for charging commercial EVs in remote locations.

“A recent survey found that 90% of fleet managers believe electric vehicles will be the future of commercial fleets,” says Brandon McNeil, vice president of Lightning Energy. “Lightning’s next generation mobile charger can support an accelerated rate of electric commercial vehicle adoption while their depot charging is being installed, a process that, unfortunately, can take a long time.”

Lightning’s new charging solution can accommodate a variety of battery capacities as well as outputs to accommodate customer use cases. The modular unit also features the same advanced technologies as Lightning’s powertrains. These technologies include thermal management for optimum battery performance and longevity and sophisticated telematics/analytics to optimize fleet operations and safety.

Further, Lightning mobile will be available for purchase or via variable term lease and rental agreements.
