Xos Inc. unveiled Xos Hub, a mobile charging station to help fleet customers access charging infrastructure at their fleet yard without having to wait for traditional infrastructure installation.
Xos Hub is part of Xos Energy Solutions, a new business unit within Xos. Xos Energy Solutions provides infrastructure services to small and large fleets to accelerate large-scale deployments of commercial electric vehicles.
Xos Hub operates as a mobile, deployable energy storage and charging system, providing fleets with flexible charging options with no fixed infrastructure improvements required. Xos Hub can charge up to five vehicles at a time and fit in the space of about two parking spots.
The charging station is powered by a solar array on the roof of and powers the cloud-enabled control and safety systems. The Xos Hub is currently available for lease as a standalone offering or within Xos’ Fleet-as-a-Service offering.
“Everything from individual state regulations to commitments by large fleet operators to convert to zero-emission electric vehicles, to President Biden’s infrastructure plan, is pointing to electric vehicles as our future," said Xos CEO and co-founder Dakota Semler. "It’s vital that we help our fleet customers move in that direction with sustainable, efficient charging infrastructure, and give our partners the ability to electrify their fleets now without having to wait for traditional fixed charging infrastructure.”
NextGen will hold its general meeting of shareholders to approve the proposed business combination with Xos on Aug. 18.
