Electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer The Lion Electric Co. (Lion Electric) has entered into a reseller agreement with Blink Charging Co., a provider of EV charging equipment and services.
Under the reseller agreement, Lion Electric will offer Blink Charging’s full line of charging stations to school systems and bus fleets that operate the company’s electric school buses, according to a news release from Blink Charging.
“With many school systems and fleet operators transitioning to electric school buses, this reseller agreement with Lion is an excellent opportunity for both companies to further their common goal of expanded EV adoption,” said Michael D. Farkas, founder and CEO of Blink Charging. “In many communities, school buses are used every day during most of the year, and the move to zero-emission vehicles is a high priority supported by rebate and grant incentives. Blink chargers support this transition by providing a reliable and accessible charging alternative to keep these electric vehicles running.”
Marc-Andre Page, vice president of commercial operations at Lion, added that the EV manufacturer’s main goal “is to make the process of electrifying truck and bus fleets as easy and seamless as possible for our customers, while providing the highest quality equipment available that meets the diverse needs of each unique fleet.”
Page also said that “Blink’s chargers, both the stationary IQ 200 and the IQ 200-M for mobile charging, are among the fastest available and well-suited for [Lion's] customers.”
