ABB Partners with Lightning eMotors to Offer EV Chargers for Commercial Fleets

Sept. 10, 2021
Since entering the e-mobility market in 2010, ABB has sold more than 400,000 electric vehicle chargers across more than 85 markets including more than 20,000 DC fast chargers and 380,000 AC chargers.

ABB’s high-output 20 kW to 350 kW DC fast chargers will be available via Lightning Energy, a division of Lightning eMotors, Loveland, CO. Lightning Energy supplies charging solutions to commercial and government fleets. As a part of the agreement, Lightning Energy will sell ABB’s DC fast-charging systems under the Lightning Energy brand. The DC fast chargers, designed and built by ABB, are equipped with around-the-clock connectivity to enable comprehensive remote services and compatibility with every individual fleet charging system.

"Commercial fleets must have a seamless experience from vehicle to charger to meet their financial targets and sustainability goals," said Bob Stojanovic, director of ABB's e-mobility business in North America, in the press release. "By collaborating with experienced companies like ABB, Lightning eMotors is helping its customers build smart, scalable fleet electrification programs.”

“Our goal is to simplify fleet electrification as much as possible by determining the ideal charging approach, in-step with the fleet selecting and purchasing their electric vehicles,” said Brandon McNeil, vice president of Lightning Energy, in the press release.” “We analyze fleet charging needs, including number and type of vehicles, route cycles, opportunity charging and dwell times, and help (customers) design a complete solution that optimizes their fleet.
