Nikola Corp. and ChargePoint Holdings announced a partnership to accelerate the deployment of electric vehicle charging infrastructure for fleets across the U.S. The collaboration will allow Nikola and the Nikola Sales and Service Dealer Network to resell ChargePoint's charging infrastructure and software solutions to its fleet customers.
"By having complete access to the entire ChargePoint product line to support all aspects of the Nikola business model, our Sales and Service Dealer Network will be able to reduce the time required to design, procure, and construct both small- and large-scale charging infrastructure projects for our customers," said Pablo Koziner, president, commercial, at Nikola in a news release. "This partnership enhances our ability to provide a customer-focused charging solution at the right time, at the right place and for the right price."
Through this alliance, Nikola and its customers will have access to the full suite of ChargePoint's software solutions, including charge management, range forecasting, and delivery route and schedule planning. In addition, ChargePoint software enables full operational visibility, helping customers understand their fleet utilization to stay ahead of critical issues.
"Making electrification easy helps fleets focus on their core business operations while easily adopting new technology," added Rich Mohr, vice president, fleet, at ChargePoint. "ChargePoint is committed to supporting OEMs, dealers, and fleets with the right tools to adopt and transition to EV transportation without disrupting their core operation."
Nikola has issued purchase orders for ChargePoint E-skids, ChargePoint's rapid deployment DC fast charging solution, to accelerate its customers' adoption of mobile charging infrastructure, with deliveries beginning this month.
