EV manufacturer eV Transportation Services Inc. has announced its reseller deal with leading EV equipment supplier company, Blink Charging.
During this week’s two-day Texas Auto Writers (Auto Roundup) event at the Texas Motor Speedway, Blink and evTS first announced their novel roadside emergency EV charging solution. Present at the occasion were key automobile influencers and media along with major automakers, proving the partnered companies’ choice of platform for announcement a successful one indeed.
“This is an exciting development for Blink Charging, and the Auto Roundup event provided the perfect opportunity to showcase to the auto manufacturers how Blink is innovating to drive widespread EV adoption. The combination of Blink’s IQ 200-M and the versatile evTS FireFly ESV will play an important role in further reducing consumers’ fears of range anxiety. The evTS product provides a zero-emission, rapid response solution for EV roadside assistance,” Blink Vice President of Marketing, Rebecca Gutierrez expressed.
Yahoo Finance notes that the agreement between the two companies enjoins the paired distribution of Blink’s IQ 200-M portable EV charging equipment to fleet customers, with evTS’ FireFly ESV® (Essential Services Vehicle), resulting in the creation of an entirely electric EV Roadside Assistance Vehicle solution.
“We believe the combination of Blink Charging’s experience and industry leadership in automotive charging technologies and evTS’ experience in design, along with the recent extension of the FireFly platform into new sectors, creates the perfect environment to strategically collaborate on several market opportunities.” David Solomont, evTS Chairman & CEO remarked.
Solomont added that it is an ideal use case for evTS vehicles as Blink’s contribution to the deal supports the company’s offering of a wider array of urban roadside assistance capabilities, particularly in spaces and locations where vehicles otherwise tend to experience inefficient operation.
