Nikola and ChargePoint to deploy charging infrastructure

Nikola and ChargePoint to deploy charging infrastructure

Nikola Corporation and ChargePoint Holdings are partnering to accelerate the deployment of electric vehicle charging infrastructure for fleets across the U.S. The companies say the collaboration will enable Nikola and the Nikola Sales and Service Dealer Network to resell ChargePoint’s portfolio of charging infrastructure and software solutions to its fleet customers, helping to ensure a solid technology interface and integrated sales approach between the two companies.

Through this alliance, Nikola and its customers will have access to the full suite of ChargePoint software solutions, including charge management, range forecasting, and streamlined delivery route and schedule planning.

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 in November 2022.

From the editor: Hot take

This alliance is the definition of a win-win for these two companies.

Nikola has an opportunity to bolster its reputation in the marketplace by partnering with one of the charging station market leaders for fleets. The company can also take advantage of ChargePoint expertise to help its fleet customers install electrification infrastructure faster.

ChargePoint has made a number of these kinds of partnerships in the past (like with Volvo), but not usually with heavy-duty truck manufacturers. This partnership will be a fantastic way for the company to indirectly sell more of its hardware, software and services to that all-important heavy-duty market.
