Cox Automotive announces completion of one of the largest electric vehicle (EV) charging single property installations in the southeast. The installation is at Cox Mobility’s Pivet Atlanta facility, located between downtown Atlanta and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The project, detailed in this video released by Cox, was completed in partnership with Georgia Power and EV charging network provider ChargePoint.
The project includes the installation of 20 Level 2 fleet chargers, six fleet DC Fast Chargers and six public DC Fast Chargers. The DC Fast Chargers can be combined to provide 125kW high-output charging for the larger batteries of the future. The charging stations, manufactured by ChargePoint, have been set up on a time-of-use rate to provide fueling during off-peak hours.
The design and build of the installation delivered by Georgia Power’s Utility Services is intended to primarily support fleet electrification, including powering the Lyft Express Drive program currently operated out of Pivet Atlanta.
The facility will also serve other fleets and OEMs on the city’s south side. Parking spaces at the Pivet Atlanta facility have also been designed to accommodate larger commercial fleet vehicles, such as electric delivery vans and trucks.
In addition, Pivet Atlanta will be able to monitor and collect data on charging sessions and station usage using ChargePoint’s cloud network services.
“The electric vehicle powertrain will be central in tomorrow’s ACES (Autonomous, Connected, Electric and Shared) future and the anticipated growth of high-utilization commercial fleets,” said Alex Fraser, AVP of Pivet, Cox Automotive Mobility, in a statement. “Thanks to partners like Georgia Power, ChargePoint and the City of Atlanta, we’re building the infrastructure necessary to power the electrified fleet future, which has been a key focus area for our team since opening Pivet Atlanta last year.”
