Mitsubishi has announced a further strengthening of its business relationship with JET Charge via a supply of new Mitsubishi Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs).
These vehicles, a combination of current-generation, JET Charge-branded Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs have been deployed across the national JET Charge network and will be used to fulfil a wide variety of functions.
“We are excited to be further supporting JET Charge’s business journey in Australia,” said MMAL eMobility Manager, Tim Clarke.
“JET Charge has been a valued and long-term EV infrastructure supplier to our business, providing solutions for our vehicles, customers and the business as a whole.
From supplying domestic and AC fast-charging cables as standard equipment for our PHEVs, JET Charge has also been instrumental in supporting our broader eMobility projects, including the installation of EV infrastructure at our innovative Adelaide Head Office,” he said.
“JET Charge is proud to be working with Mitsubishi,” said JET Charge CEO, Tim Washington.
“The Outlander PHEV with its AWD performance and extended range provides our team adaptability and safety for important remote regional projects, where JET Charge are helping to build some of the world’s most remote EV charging sites in some of the harshest regions of Australia.
Speaking at the official first vehicle handover in Western Australia, MMAL’s General Manager of the South Australia and Western Australia regions Mark Edmonds added: “This partnership is truly national in scope and we are looking forward to showcasing the Outlander PHEV’s abilities across a wide range of regional use cases and state guidelines. We strongly believe PHEV is great technology for Australia today and we are delighted to be working with JET Charge to actively demonstrate this.”
Mark Jeisman is JET Charge’s Business Development Manager in WA, and said the unique technical capabilities of the Mitsubishi PHEV are beneficial to JET Charge’s continued innovation in the EV charging space.
“As an example, Mitsubishi’s ability to support Vehicle to Grid (V2G) charging technology allows the JET Charge team and industry stakeholders to use Outlander PHEV’s for research and testing in this emerging area; one that may play an important role in Australia’s future energy needs.”
As market-leading proponents of PHEV technology, MMAL will also work closely with JET Charge and its extensive client base to further educate Australians about PHEV’s advantages.
