Heliox, Paccar Parts to deliver mobile DC chargers to Paccar’s EVs

Heliox has announced a supply agreement with Paccar Parts to support the rollout of Paccar’s electric vehicles.

Heliox will supply mobile 25kW and 50kW chargers to Paccar’s dealers and customers who are building their electric truck fleets. The mobile chargers are lightweight, transportable and often use existing infrastructure, which is a convenient option for organizations that are entering the EV market. Each charger is backed by a one-year warranty with an option to extend for up to two years, according to an announcement.

Efficient installation costs and flexibility make the Heliox mobile chargers an ideal choice for truck sales support as well as early-stage fleet deployment and testing, the company says.

“Heliox offers our dealers and customers flexible EV charger solutions that are a great option for locations with limited space,” says Brooke Vasquez, Paccar Parts senior director of marketing. “Heliox mobile chargers are a great entry point for early fleet deployment and dealer workshops, offering quick installation with limited construction and infrastructure.”

The electric truck market is expected to experience tremendous growth globally, creating a strong market for EV charger solutions in the coming years.

“This is a significant step for Heliox in expanding its operations beyond buses,” says Dave Aspinwall, Heliox U.S. president. “We look forward to working with Paccar Parts in building out their charging product offering and helping their customers on their electrification journey by offering great products, service and reliability.”

Ongoing interoperability testing with new medium- to heavy-duty vehicles ensure Heliox equipment is the most consistent and reliable mobile equipment on the market. Heliox chargers can be monitored and controlled using an EV service provider software via cloud-based Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP).

“Kenworth and Peterbilt electric vehicles are being delivered across North America. The trucking industry is gaining momentum with this rapidly evolving technology,” says Laura Bloch, Paccar Parts general manager and Paccar vice president. “Heliox works closely with our customers to meet their charging needs as we ramp up electric vehicle deployment.”
