Mobile charging station part of larger energy solutions offering of charging infrastructure and services to help fleets more easily electrify
LOS ANGELES – Xos, Inc., a leading manufacturer of fully electric Class 5 to Class 8 commercial vehicles that has announced a planned business combination with NextGen Acquisition Corporation (NASDAQ: NGAC, “NextGen”), today unveiled Xos Hub (“Xos Hub”), a mobile charging station to help its fleet customers access charging infrastructure at their fleet yard without having to wait for traditional infrastructure installation. Xos Hub is part of the larger service offering of Xos Energy Solutions, a new business unit within Xos. Xos Energy Solutions provides comprehensive infrastructure services to small and large fleets to accelerate large-scale deployments of commercial electric vehicles. The services include Xos Hub, the mobile charging station, and Xos Serve, an on-demand infrastructure-as-a-service platform that includes site evaluations, energy storage development and installation and energy management services.
Xos Hub operates as a mobile, rapidly deployable energy storage and charging system, providing fleets with flexible charging options with no fixed infrastructure improvements required. Xos Hub is able to charge up to five vehicles at a time and fit in the space of about two parking spots. A solar array on the roof of Xos Hub powers the cloud-enabled control and safety systems. Xos Serve enables fleets to deploy sizable electric vehicle fleets without the need to manage the complexity involved with such large-scale infrastructure deployments. The Xos Hub is currently available for lease as a standalone offering or within Xos’ Fleet-as-a-Service offering.
