Battle Motors, the owner and manufacturer of Crane Carrier trucks and a developer of electric vehicle (EV) technology, has partnered with PositivEnergy to install charging stations at municipal accounts across North America, according to a June 1 press release.
PositivEnergy will deliver charging stations to municipal accounts serviced by 180 Battle Motors Truck Dealers across North America. The charging stations will provide vehicle-to-grid (V2G), sequential capable power supplies and dispensers for the battery technology in Battle Motors vehicles.
Battle Motors is trying to make EV infrastructure installation as turn-key as possible for customers. PositivEnergy charging infrastructure will be made available to all Crane Carrier customers where battery electric vehicle (BEV) trucks are sold.
Mike Patterson, CEO Battle Motors, said in the release, “The partnership with PostivEnergy allows Battle Motors to provide our customers a one-stop solution for complete fast efficient infrastructure installation. The infrastructure is kicked off at vehicle purchase and installed while the body is being put on the truck.”
PositivEnergy is an energy solutions provider focused on architecting EV-charging infrastructure and custom energy storage systems at commercial and utility-scale. PositivEnergy will be providing EV charging infrastructure to Battle Motors customers, including vehicle-to-grid (V2G), sequential charge capable dispensers and power supplies as well as Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) when optimal.
Battle Motors manufactures durable and performance-driven class 7 and 8 electric trucks. The 75-year Crane Carrier legacy carries on as the newly rebranded Battle Motors, focused on electrification of the vocational and delivery truck markets.
Battle Motors is bringing the Battle-Ready Class 8 severe duty full electric truck to the market this summer with 12 top tier municipal customers. The Battle-Ready Electric delivers the same comfort, visibility and reliability as the CNG and diesel-powered trucks, but with lower maintenance costs, reduced noise and zero carbon emissions. The trucks are available for front, rear and automated side loader applications within the refuse and recycling space, and are available in standard and crew cab configurations.
