Mitsubishi Motor selects AeroVironment EV home charging systems image

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) and AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV), Monday announced AeroVironment’s selection as an additional authorized and approved nationwide supplier of EV home charging systems.

The solution will provide drivers with safe and reliable indoor/outdoor home charging and the ability to start everyday fully charged.

AeroVironment’s turnkey solution includes its UL-listed home charging station, permit acquisition, installation, customer training, 24/7 customer service and a three-year warranty on both parts and installation labor.

AeroVironment’s Level 2 home charging station being offered with the Mitsubishi i is capable of recharging a fully depleted battery in approximately 7 hours, or 80 percent in less than 30 minutes.

The initial site consultation would include an analysis of current electrical wiring capacity, recommended station placement and a full breakdown of activities and costs related to installing the AeroVironment system.

As we move forward, more and more EV makers are associating themselves with charging station manufacturers. The sweet spot and hopefully that which should close the deal is having the right partnership to take away the hard work of setting up a home charging infrastructure.
