Fleet electrification firm B-ON has partnered with charger manufacturer EO Charging to access its infrastructure throughout Europe.
The deal see B-ON’s electrification service now include EO’s charging hardware, installation and support services – allowing EO to integrate with B–ON’s existing EV fleet, energy and charge management software.
The partnership also means real-time data to customers on both their vehicles and their energy access can be done through a single system.
EO’s clients will also have preferred access to B–ON’s eLCVs and accompanying data suite, formed from more than eight years of real-world experience on the road.
Customers start with an initial consultation to analyse operations, with B–ON then designing, deploying, operating, and maintaining a custom charging solution for customers’ fleets.
The all-inclusive system delivers construction, power grid access, charger installation and maintenance, and connected software through one integrated point of contact.
The partnership will officially be available as a shared service to customers starting mid-April.
Stefan Krause, Chairman and CEO of B-ON, said: “Empowering business owners and fleet operators to meaningfully go electric is a core part of our purpose at B–ON.
“EO Charging’s vision of creating a simplified, one-stop fleet solution for charging, energy management, and even financing made them a natural partner for us to overcome customer barriers and accelerate the shift to electric fleets all over Europe.”
Charlie Jardine, CEO of EO, said: “We’re constantly looking for ways to simplify the electrification process for our customers, so it only made sense to partner with a leading manufacturer of commercial vehicles.
“Working with B–ON, we’re able to give our fleet customers access to a proven, purpose-built vehicle alongside our turnkey services, making it easier than ever for businesses to drive forward their electrification plans across Europe.”
