Cummins and electric vehicle (EV) charger maker Heliox today announced an agreement to sell and service EV chargers in North America.
According to Cummins, the partnership is a significant step forward in providing EV charging solutions for diverse markets and customers.
The agreement will bring a mobile 50 kW DC charger, Mobile 50, as well as a stationary 180 kW DC charging system, Flex 180, to market.
The Mobile 50 plugs into 480V AC wall sockets and can be used anywhere there is a compatible power source. Its portable design does not require fixed installation, which will save fleets thousands on infrastructure costs as they transition to battery electric vehicles.
The Flex 180 solution provides up to three (3) dispensers capable of static, sequential and dynamic charging for flexibility in charging for fleet customers.
Dispensing options can come in both plug and pantograph options for transit bus customers.
“We have a storied history of building innovative partnerships that combine strengths to create incremental value for our customers. Our relationship with EV charging partners builds on this legacy, and we are excited to work together to better serve customers who rely on battery electric technology. It’s yet another step in our journey to Destination Zero,” said Zach Gillen, General Manager of Cummins Sales and Service North America.
“Our collaboration with Heliox will deliver a reliable solution to support fleet customers in reaching their sustainability and emissions goals.”
“We look forward to working with Cummins to accelerate their efforts to provide electric vehicle charging solutions for fleets,” said Michael Colijn, CEO of Heliox. “Charging infrastructure is a critical component in adopting electrified technology, and we’re proud to play a role in helping Cummins customers on their journey to zero emissions vehicles.”
The collaboration between Cummins and Heliox reinforces the companies’ shared commitment to supporting customers in their transition to Destination Zero and aligns with Cummins Planet 2050 Strategy.
Recently, the company launched Accelera by Cummins, rebranding its New Power segment, to bring zero emissions solutions to markets even faster. Both EV charger products are available through Cummins’ North America distribution network.
