Recently, Exro also made headlines when the company signed a similar supply agreement with Vicinity. This is also not Exro Technologies’ first deal with evTS, as the two companies agreed on a second-life battery programme in December 2021.

“Exro’s ability to optimize the range and efficiency of the FireFly utilizing what is essentially an electronic automatic transmission creates an exciting competitive advantage for evTS in the lightweight commercial vehicle space,” said David Solomont, Chairman and CEO of evTS. “We are thrilled to work with Exro as a valuable equipment supplier, not only to optimize the performance of our vehicles, but to enable our used battery cells to serve in second-life energy storage applications. We look forward to continued collaboration in the years ahead as we continue to scale our operations alongside our tier-1 partners.”

“We’re pleased to expand our partnership with evTS, providing access to the complete Exro ecosystem, including improved powertrain performance and the opportunity to repurpose their batteries for energy storage. This is a great example of how we can solve multiple challenges for customers on the path to electrification,” said Sue Ozdemir, CEO of Exro Technologies.
