On April 21, 2022, Amerit Fleet Solutions and ZEVx announced that they have partnered to electrify vehicles by providing BEV (battery electric vehicle) fleet vehicle conversions and post conversion warranty support throughout North America.
The Amerit Fleet Solutions and ZEVx Partnership
As a ZEVx Authorized Service Partner (ASP), Amerit Fleet Solutions will be trained and certified to ZEVx standards for the Athena program, which provides combustion engine to electric conversion and on-going support of Class 2-4 commercial vehicles. Athena – the fastest path to electrification for commercial fleets – brings new life to existing assets, uses trusted and proven industry components, and is typically completed in a 1 to 2 day turnaround in a certified shop.
The Future of Electric Vehicles in Trucking
In the heavy-duty industry, electrification is a polarizing topic. Larger fleets are often excited for the opportunity to be at the cutting edge of technology, white smaller fleets and owner-operators worry they won’t be able to afford all this new tech.
Amerit Fleet Solutions and ZEVx, as well as the Athena program present the opportunity for both small and large fleets to reap the benefits of electrification, without the excessive downtime and risk of using brand-new, un-tested tech.
We’re excited to see more fleets commit to electric vehicles. Amerit serves 7 of the top 10 fleets in the U.S. and has over 150,000 assets under contract. Their support and adoption of electric vehicle conversion and maintenance will have a major impact on the industry. With new emissions standards looming, electrification is on its way – and Amerit will be a key player.
