Navistar has become a member of CharIN E.V., a global association that focuses on electric vehicle adoption.
CharIN E.V. is comprised of industrial and automotive companies that aim to advance the use of electric vehicles through the development, promotion, and implementation of the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the global standard for charging battery powered electric vehicles, according to a news release from Navistar, the parent company of IC Bus.
While previously a participant, Navistar’s membership means it now officially joins a large number of companies within the electric vehicle space, including its alliance partners Scania and MAN, in setting standards for electric vehicles and critical components such as charge ports and charging stations.
“Navistar is proud to officially join CharIN and to continue working with the companies within it to set the industry standard for electric vehicles moving forward,” said Bob Walsh, vice president of emerging technology, strategy and planning for Navistar. “We look forward to participating in important discussions and providing our unique perspective within the electric space to help set a standard that is necessary for electric vehicle adoption.”
