Similarly, the Detroit eFill line of electric commercial-vehicle chargers provide an array of charger options for customers and charging station operators, the company says.
Detroit’s says eConsulting services are provided by a team of eMobility experts dedicated to supporting customers navigate electric-truck conversion. Three service packages are offered, including: Baseline, Powerline or Megaline.
Under the top-tier Megaline package and recommended for large-scale electric-truck deployments, customers receive assistance with planning for charging infrastructure, solar panel and stationary energy-storage projects, along with the support of the eConsulting team to interface with local utilities on their behalf. Additional services in the package include a comprehensive cost-benefit and route analysis, and assistance with capital and operating-expenditure optimization.
The Powerline package includes similar benefits to those found in the Megaline package, without support for distributed energy resources (e.g. solar, storage) or the interface to local utilities. The Baseline package – free to all purchasers of Freightliner electric trucks – includes best practices and dealership-level consultation. The two higher-tier packages are available to buyers of any electric trucks, and services are not dependent on purchase of a Freightliner truck. Detroit eConsulting solutions and services can be further tailored by customers – in consultation with Detroit – to fit their specific needs, the company says.
Coinciding with the launch of Detroit eConsulting, the Detroit team introduces Detroit eFill chargers, a full line of commercial-vehicle charging stations designed for seamless integration with the Detroit ePowertrain found in Freightliner eCascadia and eM2 trucks. The company says Detroit eFill chargers are extensively tested, warrantied for five years and versatile enough to charge a wide range of other brands’ electric commercial vehicles. Detroit eFill stations were developed in partnership with Power Electronics.
All Detroit eFill chargers available at launch are DC fast chargers carrying the CCS-1 standard, the most common type of electric-vehicle charger. Detroit eFill chargers are available with power ratings from 30 kW to as much as 400 kW.
