Uniquely designed to fit a number of use cases, the first-of-its-kind mobile DC fast charger provides rapid deployment of reliable charging capabilities in locations where static charging stations are not possible or which only have a level 2 power supply, all without the constraints linked to the installation of static charging stations.
Each modular unit offers a battery capacity of between 105 and 420 kWh and offers the option of up to 5 DC fast charging outputs. The new systems are currently available to order for delivery in late 2022.
“We are extremely excited to bring our next-generation Lightning Mobile charging solution to market to address the growing need for readily available, mobile, and flexible DC fast charging,” said Tim Reeser, CEO of Lightning eMotors. “Lightning Mobile provides an essential charging solution for everything from mobile disaster relief and rescue to intermittent charging points in facilities such as sports stadiums that need a charging and power solution for EVs in a variety of locations, and can also serve as a short to medium term charging solution for fleets to rapidly deploy EVs while waiting for permanent infrastructure to be installed.
The next-generation Lightning Mobile solution was designed, engineered, and developed over a 12-month learning period through exploitation of the first-generation prototype. Engineers rigorously tested the prototype and its capabilities to develop next-generation charging capability that has proven to be the ideal solution for charging commercial trucks, vans, buses and cars in remote locations, events and deposits.
“A recent survey found that 90% of fleet managers believe electric vehicles will be the future of commercial fleets,” said Brandon McNeil, vice president of Lightning Energy. “Lightning’s next-generation mobile charger can support an accelerated rate of adoption of electric utility vehicles during their depot charging installation, a process that, unfortunately, can be time-consuming.”
Lightning’s new mobile charging solution can support a variety of battery capacities and outputs to accommodate customer use cases. The modular unit also features the same advanced technologies as Lightning’s powertrains, including active thermal management for optimal battery performance and longevity and sophisticated telematics/analytics to optimize overall fleet operations and safety cars.
To address both short-term and long-term use cases, Lightning Mobile will be available for purchase or through variable-term leases. please contact [email protected] for more information.
