General Motors announced its Ultium Charge 360 fleet-charging service, a comprehensive approach designed to help make the switch to electric seamless for fleet customers by connecting them with services, features and resources.

The new service will offer where available:

  • Fleet and facility management tools.
  • Integration with both GM’s fleet management solution, OnStar Vehicle Insights, and the BrightDrop fleet and asset management platform. BrightDrop is a new business unit wholly owned by GM.
  • Support for a wide range of fleet segments, including delivery, sales, utilities and motor pool.
  • Help new and existing fleet customers identify providers, tools and solutions required to plan, finance, deploy and operate charging infrastructure in fleet yards and depots.

“Fleets have a significant impact on the transition to EVs and by expanding Ultium Charge 360 to our fleet customers, GM aims to be a significant industry leader to advance fleet EV adoption at scale and accelerate our goal of reaching 1 million EV sales globally by 2025,” Ed Peper, U.S. vice president at GM Fleet, said in a release.

In addition, Ultium Charge 360’s approach to charging will help to enable support for home charging and provide drivers access to more than 60,000 public places to charge while en route. — Transport Topics
