Xos Inc., a manufacturer of Classes 5-8 electric commercial vehicles, announced the Xos Hub mobile charging station. It is intended as a custom-built alternative to installed charging infrastructure.
Xos Hub can charge up to five vehicles at a time and fit in the space of about two parking spots, according to the Los Angeles-based company. A solar array on the roof of Xos Hub powers the cloud-enabled control and safety systems. Xos Hub currently is available for lease as a stand-alone offering or within Xos’ fleet-as-a-service offering.
“Everything from individual state regulations, to commitments by large fleet operators to convert to zero-emission electric vehicles, to President Biden’s infrastructure plan, is pointing to electric vehicles as our future,” co-founder and CEO Dakota Semler said in a release. “It’s vital that we help our fleet customers move in that direction with sustainable, efficient charging infrastructure, and give our partners the ability to electrify their fleets now without having to wait for traditional fixed charging infrastructure.” — Transport Topics
