Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc. has appointed ChargePoint, a provider of networked solutions for charging electric vehicles, as an official source to provide EV charging infrastructure and software solutions, as well as training to Isuzu dealers and customers.
Isuzu announced in March that it will introduce the 2025 NRR EV, a Class 5 battery electric truck, in early 2024.
“This relationship will allow our dealers and customers to get ready now for the introduction of our electric truck next year,” says Shaun C. Skinner, president of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America and Isuzu Commercial Truck of Canada. “Trying to find a reliable resource for the installation of the necessary charging and electrification infrastructure can be staggering. Our relationship with ChargePoint will ease the transition for everyone.”
Isuzu dealers will simply need to access a ChargePoint website portal using the dealer’s own credentials. ChargePoint or one of its channel partners will then work with the dealer and/or customer directly to develop a customized electrification solution and identify available incentives from state and local agencies and utilities. ChargePoint or one of its channel partners will be able to manage all aspects of the project, from needs assessment through equipment purchase and installation and charging training.
“Commercial trucks play a critical role in the transition to electrification, underscoring the need for integrated charging solutions to help streamline operations and deliver a lower total cost of ownership (TCO),” says ChargePoint’s Rich Mohr. “Together, Isuzu and ChargePoint are removing barriers to entry for electrifying commercial trucks and delivering integrated software and hardware solutions that maximize Isuzu customers’ TCO advantage.”
