International dealer West Michigan International opened an electric commercial vehicle charging station at its Kalamazoo location.

Located off I-94, an important Midwestern freight corridor, the new electric vehicle (EV) charging station is optimized for commercial vehicle charging and will provide fleets the ability to charge larger vehicles, including Class 8 electric trucks. The DC fast charger features two 24-hour charging hookups.

Similar to diesel fueling stations, drivers using these chargers can pay at the pump for their charge.

Navistar’s brands, International and IC Bus, have the largest dealer network in North America with more than 700 locations. International and IC Bus dealers, with support from Navistar’s NEXT eMobility team, are helping prepare customers for the transition to EVs.

The chargers at the West Michigan International in Kalamazoo were installed with support from Navistar’s charging partner, InCharge. The dealership worked closely with Navistar’s NEXT eMobility team to plan, coordinate and install the vehicle charger. NEXT operates around a model that provides an end-to-end solution for customers looking to transition their business operations to EVs.
