GM, BrightDrop to roll out Ultium Charge 360 for EV fleets in the US


General Motors (GM) and BrightDrop, GM's new electric commercial delivery and logistics arm, recently announced the Ultium Charge 360 fleet charging service. 

The Ultium Charge 360 fleet service aims to offer EV solutions to fleets, such as fleet and facility management tools, integration with both GM’s fleet management solution, OnStar Vehicle Insights, and the BrightDrop fleet and asset management platform. 

Charge 360 will also give support for a wide range of fleet segments, including delivery, sales, utilities, and motor pool, GM said. 

"The comprehensive solution will help new and existing fleet customers identify providers, tools and solutions required to plan, finance, deploy and operate charging infrastructure in fleet yards and depots," GM added. 


In addition, Ultium Charge 360’s "holistic approach to charging" will help to enable support for home charging and provide drivers access to more than 60,000 public places to charge while en route.

As part of the solution, GM is working with preferred providers, including four depot infrastructure providers: eTransEnergy, a Duke Energy company; EVgo; In-Charge Energy; and Schneider Electric.

GM is also expanding existing commercial relationships with Qmerit for home charging and EVgo for public and depot charging.

“Fleets have a significant impact on the transition to EVs and by expanding Ultium Charge 360 to our fleet customers, GM aims to be a significant industry leader to advance fleet EV adoption at scale and accelerate our goal of reaching one million EV sales globally by 2025,” US Vice President of GM Fleet Ed Peper said. 

“Fleet electrification is an important element of our growth strategy, and we will leverage our leadership and expertise in this space to support customers at home, at depots and in public with our suite of providers,” Peper added. 

“Commercial fleets will soon have more confidence and convenience when it comes to electrifying their fleet,” lead architect for EV infrastructure at GM Alex Keros said.
