Lightning Systems is a Colorado-based company that designs and manufactures all-electric powertrains for implementation in medium and heavy-dutyvehicles:delivery trucks, city and shuttle buses, passenger vans and cabs.When a company decides to electrify its vehicles, it must also design a charging infrastructure, both its own and public, that allows it to get the most out of each of them.This mobile charger that has just been announced has been devised for this purpose.

Based on data from a recent survey by the company, Tim Reeser, CEO of Lightning Systems, states that many large companies intend toelectrify most of their vehicles in the next five years.This means thousands of new commercial electric vehicles that will need a solution that guarantees recharging in hundreds of different locations.The Lightning Mobile thus becomes an alternative tool that can be managed to cover part of the recharging needs of many companies, adapting to their operations.In addition tomobile recharging,it can also be used asan energy storeto take advantage of the hours of the cheapest electricity rate and, later, to be able to charge the vehicles at peak times.
