Ideanomics, Mahle partner on N.A. commercial EV fleets

Ideanomics will have exclusive rights for five years to distribute the ChargeBig 18-36 AC charging system.

Ideanomics has formed a strategic partnership with Mahle and will become the development partner and exclusive North American distributor for the ChargeBig 18-36 AC fleet charging solution. Customers can order the unit from Ideanomics beginning in Q2 2023, with first orders expected to be fulfilled in early 2024.

Under the terms of the agreement, Ideanomics has exclusive rights for five years to distribute the ChargeBig 18-36 AC charging system under the Ideanomics Energy brand in North America. Ideanomics and Mahle will optimize the system for North American commercial fleets including UL certification. The system already meets regulatory requirements for charging infrastructure under California law.

With around 1,500 ChargeBig charging points supplied to more than 20 customers in Europe, ChargeBig also maintains a large-scale demonstration site in China, the companies say. The ChargeBig 18-36 AC system’s centralized control unit provides dynamic load management for up to 36 individual charging points with a charging power of either 7 kW, 11 kW or 19 kW.

Ideanomics recently acquired VIA Motors and has positioned Ideanomics Energy as the preferred charging solutions provider for VIA’s electric work trucks. Together, Ideanomics Energy and VIA say they will offer a cost-efficient, integrated EV and charging solution for commercial fleets. Along with its other charging solutions, Ideanomics Energy will offer the ChargeBig 18-36 charging solution to fleet operators.
