Penske promotes EV charging

Penske Truck Leasing announced on August 13 it has joined the Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN), a worldwide industry alliance focused on promoting Combined Charging System (CCS) as the global standard for charging electric vehicles (EVs) of all types. Penske will focus its attention on helping to promote electric vehicle charging standards for commercial vehicles in North America by participating with the group's "High Power Charging for Commercial Vehicles Task Force" (HPCCV Task Force).

Penske Truck Leasing sees increased interest among its commercial customers related to electric vehicles (EVs). In a statement, the company noted that improving standardization with electric vehicle charging may help reduce complexity for fleet operators and truck drivers as well as maintenance providers, and recharging/refueling providers.

"As a leading services provider to commercial fleets, we feel standardization around electric vehicle charging and charging stations will help accelerate the use of electric vehicles within the transportation industry," said Brian Hard, president and CEO of Penske Truck Leasing. "The interoperability of vehicle charging stations over the road is essential for commercial fleet uptime, efficiency, maintenance, and general ease of use for the industry."  Penske Truck Leasing is the first in its industry to join the CharIN organization.
