ChargePoint to Power Firefly® ESVs for evTS Fleet and Business Customers
BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / September 23, 2022 / ev Transportation Services Inc. ("evTS"), an electric vehicle manufacturer focused on the essential services and urban e-mobility markets, today announced that it has become a referral partner of ChargePoint products and services. evTS municipal and enterprise fleet customers who need intelligent, flexible electric vehicle charging solutions will benefit from the addition of ChargePoint hardware, network software and ChargePoint as a Service® (CPaaS®) offerings.
As a result of the newly formed referral partnership, evTS customers have access to the ChargePoint network, as well as the ability to deliver products in volume and at scale wherever and whenever EV charging is needed.
"Our Firefly® ESV is specifically engineered to meet the challenge and requirements of an all-electric light weight commercial utility vehicle for essential services transportation and urban e-mobility markets," said David Solomont, evTS Chairman and CEO. "To keep our vehicles on the road, we also need to accelerate the deployment of, and access to, a robust network of EV charging stations for our customers. ChargePoint offers the most comprehensive charging portfolio for fleets of all types and sizes, including everything they need to electrify and optimize charging as they grow.
"As our customer base of fleet operators, delivery companies, logistics service providers and municipalities grow at a rapid pace, we will continue to bring innovative new solutions to make fleet electrification cost effective and efficient. CPaaS®️ for example offers flexible deployment options and the avoidance of upfront expenses that make it easy to adopt EV charging. Combined with our own ev Transportation as a Service™ (ev TaaS) Program for leasing EVs, including all vehicle operating expenses from insurance to maintenance and costs of charging, we can offer a powerful total solution for small and large organizations alike to transition to an electric fleet. We currently have ChargePoint referrals in progress with several municipalities and businesses, and recently closed the sale of 10 FireFly vehicles with chargers for a municipality in Southern California with delivery in Q1 2023. We look forward to working with the team at ChargePoint to co-market and support our brands," concluded Solomont.
"Through our partnership with evTS, we are enabling more fleets to achieve their electrification goals," said Rich Mohr, vice president, fleet, ChargePoint. "ChargePoint has proven software and hardware solutions for every vertical. Together, ChargePoint and evTS will accelerate deployment for forward-thinking fleets"
