These new partnerships are two of Mack's current four with charging infrastructure development companies. Mack's Turnkey Solutions program is an end-to-end fleet management service for developing infrastructure, including charging hardware, software, site design, obtaining permits, installation, utility coordination, and charging equipment maintenance.
"Mack Trucks is focused on simplifying the transition to BEV for our customers to help increase the adoption rate of sustainable transportation," said Jonathan Randall, president of Mack Trucks North America. "We have our own team dedicated to e-mobility solutions, and through the Turnkey Solutions program, we've established a holistic program to support the charging needs of our customers."
Mack developed the Turnkey Solutions program to help companies transition to electric vehicles. Companies can choose which partner to bundle charging hardware and services with the purchase of their vehicles from InCharge Energy, Blink Charging, Gilbarco Veeder-Root, or Heliox.
"Our charging partnerships and the Turnkey Solutions program as a whole will enable customers to more easily manage the development and installation of infrastructure for the Mack MD Electric and Mack LR Electric vehicles," said Ryan Saba, Mack's energy solutions manager.
The MD Electric is Mack's second electric vehicle. The first was the Mack LR Electric, which went into production in December 2021. Mack introduced the Mack MD Electric in March 2023.
