According to a press release, as the U.S. reimagines its energy future and as a new electric ecosystem takes shape, commercial vehicle fleets are one of the most crucial transportation sectors to consider.

As early adopters, fleets and fleet managers can level up the EV transition for other sectors by partnering with auto manufacturers that develop innovative solutions for the country’s infrastructure charging needs.

The Shyft Group, headquartered in Michigan with nearly 50 years of serving commercial vehicle fleets, is helping lead this acceleration.

“We’re at a critical time to decide where and how electric vehicle infrastructure is built,” said U.S. Representative Debbie Dingell.

“This innovation addresses a major roadblock to growing the U.S. electric vehicle fleet and is an impressive advancement toward making EVs more accessible. I’m proud to see a Michigan-based company leading the way in expanding EV infrastructure, and I look forward to continuing to work in Congress alongside industry partners and other key stakeholders to move us closer to a zero-emission vehicle future while creating good jobs here at home and advancing American competitiveness on the world stage.”

“The transportation industry must take action and reduce its carbon footprint – which is why creating a better, more sustainable, and inclusive future is a fundamental value of The Shyft Group,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Daryl Adams. “Investing in infrastructure innovation is one way we can truly create a smart, responsible approach to fueling the EV promise.”
